Here is a tentative itinerary:
Friday, Nov 8: Tucson Museum of Art and the museums at the University of AZ
Saturday, Nov 9: AZ Sonora Desert Museum and Titan Missile Museum
Sunday, Nov 10: Mass at and tour San Xavier Mission, then Colossal Cave
I am not very familiar with the Tucson area, so I don't feel all that comfy planning this, but I'm giving it a try. And based on comments from prior events, this weekend won't have a tight schedule. A few of the sites will offer group discounts if we make reservations at least 2 weeks prior, and I think one place would want the entire fee paid in advance.
The Phx Spring event had a number of people coming in a day or more before the weekend event itself, and if this will hold true for this Tucson event, some other places you might be interested in seeing are:
Kartchner Caverns (Nov 8 is their 10th Anniversary, so I'd expect that place to be fully reserved shortly)
Pima Air & Space Museum
and you can check www.visittucson.org for other ideas.
Please give feedback on this schedule. I will wait a bit before I post this event on the Events page--Patrick from Tucson will contact me regarding hotel & restaurants.
Lots of nice things in that area...but I'm going to be in the Great Plains....
Curious to know a couple of things about Tucson:
- How long of a drive is it from Phoenix?
- How much warmer is Tucson than Phoenix at that time of year? Average temps?
- If there aren't enough folks interested in the Tucson area, would event revert back to Phoenix?
- Airport to fly in at Tucson?
And, as always, I welcome any helpful suggestions for improving this get-together.
Would enjoy hearing from locals!
