Touring Tucson Arizona
If you're looking for a place to visit that offers a variety of historical places, museums, dinning and tourist attractions, then Tucson is where you want to plan on visiting.
Start your trip to Tucson off by visiting the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. Here you'll see a great zoo, natural history museum and a selection of botanical gardens all in one visit. The mission of the museum is to inspire people to live in harmony with the natural world by fostering love, appreciation and understanding of the Sonoran Desert. You'll experience the meaning of the mission statement by seeing animals in their natural settings, and through the many educational programs offered at the museum. Enjoy the more than 1,200 plants and 300 animals at the museum while touring through almost 2 miles of trails on the 21 acres of desert.
When you tour the Pima Air and Space Museum, you'll be seeing one of the largest Air and Space Museums in the west that includes over 250 aircraft. You can ride the tram to the Morphis Simulator, take a look at the SR-71 Blackbird "Spy Plane" and climb onto Air Force One used by President Kennedy. Don't miss the Challenger Learning Center of the Southwest while at the museum and travel back in time at the B-17 390th Memorial Museum too. If you get hungry, stop at the Thunderbirds Grill for a bite to eat before visiting the gift shop to pick up a memento to remember your visit to the museum.
Enjoy an afternoon at the Tucson Museum of Art's Historic Block located in a walled fortress that was the beginning of Tucson. Here you'll enjoy and learn about the art of the past, present and future. If you're in need of a break from touring the museum, you'll enjoy the courtyard that includes a sculpture garden and waterfall in an area known as the Plaza of the Pioneers. This also serves as the central location for social and cultural activities in Tucson. If you look around the Plaza, you'll see five houses built in the late 1800's mixed in with the modern museum buildings.
