Jeanne’s guidebook - just a few of my favorite things!

Sightseeing
"The White Dove of the Desert" is a must see. One of my favorite sites to visit in Tucson. Go inside the church, peek into the chapel, walk around and admire the architecture, cute gift shop. Eat Indian Fry Bread prepared by a native from the Tohono O'odham tribe fried on an open air mesquite grill as you order. Climb up to the top of the hill and overlook the city. I've grown up in Tucson and going here is still a treat for me. So close to town and something you don't want to miss.

Don't expect to find your typical indoor museum. While some exhibits are inside most of this is an outdoor park introducing you to the desert wildlife, vegetation, history and culture. Enjoyed by all ages. Best visited during nice weather.

Getting Outdoors
Great place to just get out in nature and enjoy the desert. Take the tram from the visitor's center to the top. Get out and walk down the canyon as far as you want before catching the tram back down to the parking lot. Such a beautiful place to walk or hike. No cars or bikes allowed so you can walk on the road if you don't want to hike (locals use this for daily exercise). This is also the trailhead for some great hikes. Get information at the visitors center - one of the most popular is seven falls.

Small desert gardens. Nice way to get outside. Not a must do, but it's close by and a nice place to walk around if you don't have the time to do the Desert Museum or Tucson Botanical Gardens. The bistro is darling and they have a great gift shop that I love to go to even if I don't actually enter the gardens. There is an entrance fee to walk through the garden.

Much smaller than big city botanical gardens but lovely to stroll through. Another nice way to get outside.

Neighborhoods
At the intersection of River and Campbell (just up the street from Farm View Bungalow) is St. Philip's Plaza, St. Philip's in the Hills Church, Joesler Village, the Trader Joe's Shopping Center, and The Rillito River Walk. There is a variety of restaurants, galleries, shops, and more. It's a great place to just walk around and enjoy. There is a Farmer's Market on Saturday and Sunday. And sometimes music in the plaza.

Funky, lively area with eclectic restaurants and shops. The modern street car runs through the Univ of Arizona campus area, down 4th Avenue and then through downtown. I recommend parking at the end of the line near Univ/Banner Hospital and getting a day pass so you can hop on, hop off as you see something that interests you.

Such a fun area to drive through. See adobe homes with many of them now completely restored. Or take a guided walking tour of downtown, armory park, and the barrios so you know what you are looking at.

The best way to get around Tucson is in a car.
The whole city is easily accessed from Farm View Bungalow. Parking is easy everywhere except downtown (which can be challenging but even still is very doable).
