Splurge attraction near Tucson

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for an attraction splurge in Tucson for my family of 5, children 11-16, in March. I have 2 candidates:

Kitt Peak Nightly Observing Program: The cost for this is $228 (includes brown bag dinner). This is a highly rated program and a rare chance to look through large telescopes in total darkness at altitude. Lasts about 4 hours. I checked the moonrise and that day it is fairly late, around 10 PM, so complete darkness assured for most of the time on the telescopes. Online reviews are very positive.

Kartchner Caverns Cave Tour: The cost for this is $94.75. Tour is about 90 minutes, half of which is spent in the cave. It is supposed to be quite a special cave, but so is Mammoth Cave and we were not terribly impressed with that one. Online reviews are mixed, mostly very positive. Main concern is that it is pretty much just another cave tour.
