If you want to get away from the cool weather then I suggest a trip down south to Tucson, Arizona. When I first heard I was going to Arizona I didn’t really know what to expect. But it turned out to be a really great vacation! I did a lot of unique things that I have never done before and that I can’t do in any other place in the country.
1. The city of Tucson is surrounded by mountains. There are all different types of trails that are welcome to the public. You can run, jog, or walk on whichever you like. Personally, I recommend Catalina Trails. Make sure you are in good shape before you attempt to walk on these trails. They are very rocky and narrow. You can see many beautiful plants that are unique to Arizona. Just make sure you watch out for the cactuses!
2. Something else I recommend is a stop at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. This is a history museum, zoo, and botanical garden all in one. The museum is most famous for an event called Raptor Free Flight. During this event, large birds called raptors will fly over your head and do tricks. It is an extremely unique experience, and you will definitely enjoy it.
3. My favorite thing that I did while I was in Arizona was visiting Sabino Canyon. During our tour of the canyon we got in a tram and a tour guide told us all about the surrounding area. The tram takes you all the way to the top of the mountain and you are able to get on and off whenever you like. It is one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. There were gorgeous waterfalls and lots of animals. I can guarantee you will be in awe with a visit to Sabino Canyon.
4. Lastly, when looking for food in Tucson you should go to In n Out Burger. The ever famous restaurant is an old fashioned burger shack on the west coast known for their small menu of delicious food items. If you are considering a stop at In n Out make sure to plan accordingly because there is always a long line and is most often very busy.
In conclusion, when most people think about going to Arizona, Phoenix pops into their head. Although Tucson may not be as popular there is just as much to do and see. It is a very interesting city and I have never visited anywhere like it before. If you are looking for an enjoyable, warm, fun filled vacation then Tucson is the place for you.
