Tucson Things to Do!

Arizona Main

Jacob's Review:
   This is a really neat place to see the desert, wildlife, look at so many kinds of wild cactus, lizards even owls and stuff! It is like going through wading pools at the ocean - 'cept in the desert!

   There are lots of trails and big rock formations and stuff.

Jacob Tip:   If you freeze a Gatorade bottle of water the night before you go, you can leave it in the car and it will melt and be cold all day!
