We are getting down to our last couple of weeks here in Phoenix. In fact, this past weekend was our last free weekend. Instead of just sitting around the apartment, we figured we had better go and do something that we haven’t done yet. So we took a day trip to Tucson!
Tucson is about two hours south of Phoenix. I went on the trusty Trip Advisor website and looked up some of the good places to visit with kids. The Tucson Children’s Museum was one of the top choices, so we decided to check it out. You can’t really go wrong with a children’s museum!
Most children’s museums are pretty similar, and this one fell in line with the rest of them. It was a good mix of educational stuff combined with lots of button pressing, sand, and other things that kids like. Sophie and Sawyer aren’t quite old enough to really grasp the educational stuff, but they always have a good time at these museums.
After the museum we had lunch at a nice Mexican restaurant. It was Cinco de Mayo afterall!
We finished our quick day trip with a drive up a mountain. One of the top tourist thing to do in Tucson is visit a place called Mount Lemmon. It was a very scenic drive to the top. Unfortunately about half way up, Sawyer fell asleep. So that limited our ability to get out and do any actual hiking. But it was a very pretty couple of hour drive to the top and back down.
Sawyer woke up when were driving home and said, “Aw man. Where is the mountain?” He was disappointed he missed most of the trip.
