276 S Park Ave, Tucson, AZ 85719, USA
Drive a few blocks east of downtown Tucson, turn south on Park Avenue, and you'll find three blocks of historic warehouses that have been transformed into "The Lost Barrio." If you're on a road trip, you'll probably be okay with fitting your...
400 N Toole Ave A, Tucson, AZ 85701, USA
Maynard's Market & Kitchen is a great place to experience some of the best that downtown Tucson has to offer, with a host of locally sourced products, as well as a considerable wine selection. The bar is a cool spot for an informal meal and a...
1950 San Xavier Rd, Tucson, AZ 85746, USA
Just to the southwest of Tucson, on the San Xavier Reservation, sits the late XVIII-century Mission San Xavier del Bac, one of the finest examples of Spanish colonial architecture in the U.S. The combination of late Baroque and Moorish-inspired...

Puns don't get much better than "Sir Veza." Around since the 1920s, this beer-loving, car-themed Tucson restaurant is run by the same people behind the venerable El Charro, the country's oldest family-owned Mexican restaurant and birthplace of the...
311 N Court Ave, Tucson, AZ 85705, USA
El Charro sits in a converted set of historic houses & buildings a block off Tucson's old town district—the same location where it began serving food in 1922. We had lunch here, at a big old wooden table in a warmly decorated dining room. Ask to...
Every visit to Tucson should include a stop at Saguaro National Park. There are two parts to the park, the Tucson Mountain District and the Rincon Mountain District. My favorite is the Rincon Mountain District. The Cactus Forest Loop Drive is...
