1st Night stopover

by kop-queen

We fly into Tucson Int'l for 6.25pm on Thurs 21/4. Allowing for customs and collecting a hire care we plan to put about an hours worth of travelling between us heading probably towards Salt River Canyon.

We will be ending our journey back in Tucson so no need to see any sights here at this time.

There looks to be a road (79?) via Florence. Is it a reasonable route? about how far along it might we get in an hour (approx)? Casa Grande Ruins are close to Florence or maybe Boyce Thompson Arboretum - are either worth a trip next morning - schedule is a bit tight already - see below? Any hotel suggestions? Clean tidy nothing fancy.

Or route 77?

Overall trip itinerary is now Tucson-Salt River Canyon-Petrified Forest-Canyon de Chelly-Monument Valley- Grand Canyon-Tucson (all within a week). I'll be back for more details on the rest later!

Thanks guys

Re: 1st Night stopover

by yawndave

If you only want to drive for an hour or so, the area around Casa Grande has the best selection for lodgings...from Super 8 to a golf resort. The Ruins are impressive, but you can see them in 30 minutes...perhaps longer if you linger in the museum and watch the video. Boyce Thompson is pretty neat if you enjoy botanic gardens. If you wanted to make some more miles and pass these places by, Globe is worth considering for an overnight stay.

Thanks

I suppose that if we take 79 we could drive as far as we feel fit, and then get onto 60 towards Globe if we make good time. About how much might it add 30 minutes?

77 looks a little more bendy? so guess we might not save time overall on that route.

Do you think we would need to prebook accomodation in either place or is it likely to be pretty quiet around that time?

Travel Tips for Tucson

Old Spanish Mission

by bottleofdoom

San Xavier Mission is a typical Spanish Mission of the Southwest. Take I-19 south and exit at San Xavier. It is on an indian reservation about 15 mins. south of Tucson. San Xavier is a typical Spanish Mission of the southwest. There are elaborate paintings and a shrine to San Xavier inside. There is a small museum, a hill you can climb to the top of to get a nice view, and usually there are some native americans selling fry bread outside. Definitely try it, it's yummy.

Sabino Canyon Serenity

by JenNJohn

Sabino Canyon is considered a mini oasis in the desert. It was formed by a creek cutting between two mountains forming one of the best examples of life in the desert.

Sabino Canyon has several advantages over other hikes in the area. Like other hikes you can set off on your own and hike the desert. However, Sabino Canyon also has a small paved path that is several miles long. During the early morning or around dusk this path will get populated with walkers, joggers, and bikers. This option is a big advantage for singles, or anyone who want a little added security while still feeling close to nature. Along the path they have several stops with restrooms and water available. A stream also runs through here if you want to take a quick dip to cool off.

Throughout the day they run a shuttle (for a small fee) through the canyon that gives you basic information about the desert and the wildlife. This is a great option for seniors or disabled who would like to see the desert but normally have trouble getting to these remote locations. Water! Water, water, and more water!!! This is the desert after all. There are faucets available every once in a while but make sure you bring some water along with you. Sunscreen and sunglasses are recommended, as well as a sweat towel.

If you are going off the paved path a few more things are recommended:

Firstly, a walking stick. Even if you feel you don't need one, in Arizona this is more of a safety tool than support. If there is a snake on the path ahead, it will attack the first thing that comes in its area. Better a stick than your leg! And there are rattle snakes in Sabino Canyon. Learn to recognize these and Gilla Monsters so you know to avoid them.

Secondly, a small first aid kit. Just enough to treat the basics. Bandaids, tweesers, neosporine, an ankle wrap just in case. Its always a good idea to bring a cell phone too, as a "just-in-case". This is advised for any hiking in the desert.

4-meter Mayall

by mht_in_la

The photo shows the 4-meter Mayall telescope. It's the biggest optical telescope in Kitt Peak (McMath-Pierce is a 2-meter but of a different design). As a local landmark, it sits on top of Kitt Peak easily visible from the city of Tucson.

Today the observatory is run by the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO), an organization operated by universities and institutions that conduct astronomic research across the nation. The funding comes from National Science Fundation (NSF).

Eggcellent breakfast!

by CDWangs about The Good Egg

I don't know whether or not this is a chain, but they serve so many kinds of breakfast food I was taken aback. I'd love to have a place like this where I live. They had friendly people there who seem to enjoy it when you enjoy the food they bring you. Our waitress was never far away and very helpful. The restaurant was well lit. We had nice, comfortable seats. Thick slices of bacon, great eggs (of course), biscuits, pancakes, ummmm :-) I think every restaurant in Tucson keeps some sort of hot pepper on the table, so I tried some green pepper sauce on my eggs -- Good!

Try Some Guatemalan Food

by Basaic about Maya Quetzal Restaurant

The Maya Quetzal was my first time eating at a Guatemalan Restaurant. They had a variety of chicken, pork, and beef dishes along with some appetizers and soups. I had the Longaniza which is a pork sausage stuffed with ground pork, onions, jalapenos, mint and other spices. It was pretty tasty, and was served with rice, refried beans and a salad. The refried beans were not what you are used to getting with your Mexican Food. They were made with black beans, and had a stronger taste. They serve alcohol. The decor in the restaurant consisted of paintings, photos and handicrafts from Guatemala. Worth a visit.
