You can be transported back into the time of the Wild West. Old Tucson
has been the location for over 400 films. You will likely see a stagecoach drawn by two horses pass you by as you walk along the streets. Have you ever panned for gold? Try your hand at this old-time method of sifting out this treasured mineral. Afterwards, be a child again and ride the painted pony on the carousal. You will be in for a colorful architectural treat in the Barrio Historica
-- located south of Cushing Street. Between Main Avenue and Stone Avenue, the homes are made of brightly-painted and textured adobe, made by taking the natural desert dirt and forming mud-bricks to create the thick walls. Make plans to join a wine-tasting tour
and head to the vineyards of Sonoita, located 45 minutes south of Tucson. Pick up a bottle of your favorite wine to accompany the simple meal which you will prepare within the fully-equipped kitchen in your vacation rental accommodation.
The University of Arizona Museum of Art
brings past and present creativity to light. On their website you can see the calendar of events and arrange for a self-guided exploration of the museum or to be part of a group tour. Who can resist the beautifully painted pottery of this region? This functional art – a bowl, plate, or vase -- can be the perfect souvenir of your holiday. By enjoying the amenities of modern-day Tucson, or exploring its vibrant history, you too will soon discover why Tucson is often the destination of choice for a winter-time holiday
