Three weeks ago, we arrived in Tucson for a week. Gotta say we love traveling at a slower pace and staying in one place longer.
We stayed at a mega-RV super campsite called Lazy Days. A true resort in every sense.
We had been having some problems with the propane which turned out to be a recall on the regulator. The RV park sat right next to an Airstream dealer so we made an appointment and had that taken care of on day 1.
We are a fan of food tours! We did one in Vail, CO a couple of years ago. I thought it was such a great concept that I looked to see if they have them in Austin (they have several). It's just a great way to get your bearings in a new city and get a full belly. We did a great food tour in Tucson (creatively called Tucson Food Tour). It did not disappoint. I want to get a group together to do one in our home city ... hmmm ... what is our home city? Austin of course!
We spent a few hours at the Sonara Desert Museum. I was having an allergy attack which wasn't helped by the desert bloom, but it was beautiful. Thanks Lonna for taking care of me!
Turns out we have a couple friends in Tucson. One new (our neighbor in Breckenridge) & one old (college buddy). It was so much fun to catch up with both of them. Jim & Carol have a winter home in Saddlebrooke which is an off the hook nice active retirement community. They were nice enough to spend the entire day and show us around. Thanks! We also spent an evening being hosted by Steve & Tina at their beautiful house for dinner. It was great to reconnect and relive some of those college stories. Steve, want to go to the drag strip this weekend?
A highlight was going on a tour of the Titan Missile Museum. Very unique. Highly recommended.
Lonna and I both played some tennis in Tucson at a nice facility. I like to play tennis at most places we go. Another opportunity to find a place we didn't know existed (some random nice tennis center).
We went to Sedona next .... OMG Sedona is NICE!
