THINGS TO SEE & DO
SAGUARO NATIONAL PARK: The park is home to the nation’s largest cacti (Carnegiea gigantea) — but that’s not all. Saguaro is made up of more than 165 miles of hiking trails of varying difficulties, offers beautiful views from mountain-top lookouts, and houses dozens of plants and animals that may surprise you. Go to their website for safety tips, a list of animals and more: www.nps.gov/sagu/index.htm.
TALLBOYS: Open from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m., the laid-back eatery — complete with exposed brick and string lights — definitely meets its promise of an all-day breakfast. And with a menu including everything from traditional huevos rancheros, to innovative and artistic breakfast poke, to eponymous Tallboy tots, they’re sure to have something for everyone.

PIMA AIR & SPACE MUSEUM: Featuring 300 historical aircrafts on its 80 acres, the museum is one of the largest non-government funded aviation and space museums in the world. It’s open seven days a week and offers discounts for groups of 20 or more. Plan a trip with your fellow RVers here: www.nps.gov/sagu/index.htm.
THE SCREAMERY: Get out of the Arizona heat with delicious, handcrafted ice cream. With the title of the state’s first ice cream pasteurizer, the shop serves up all the traditional favorites, along with some Screamery originals such as Bee’s Knees, Bacon & Bourbon, PB S’mores and Ooey Gooey Buttercake. Having trouble choosing just one? Don’t worry – they know how hard it can be, which is why they offer an ice cream flight! Choose your six sample-size scoops here: www.thescreamery.com.
SEVEN FALLS: Within the Sabino Canyon of Coronado National Forest is one of the most loved and most popular hikes in southern Arizona. After a fairly easy trek on Bear Canyon Trail (from the Sabino Canyon Recreation Area), crossing the creek seven times, you will arrive at the Falls. (www.fs.usda.gov/attmain/coronado/specialplaces)
TUCSON BOTANICAL GARDENS: Set in the heart of the city are winding pathways, oral exhibits and greenhouses — all using minimal water due to the dry desert climate. The beautiful getaway offers iris and herb gardens, a gift shop and regularly hosts special events such as musical guests or butterfly exhibits. ( www.tucsonbotanical.org)
ROMERO POOLS: The 5.6-mile hike in Catalina State Park may sound difficult, but is estimated at only an hour and a half and skilled at beginner level. Plus, with its spectacular views, varied terrain and reward at the end — a reliable oasis of pools of water in the middle of the desert — it’s more than worth it.
