Trip Report Tuscon for potential snowbirds

Jump to last reply

We are in the two week Tucson portion of a three week trip that will end in Albuquerque. After sitting on the Tarmac being de-iced we luckily did not miss our connection and arrived at the compact and art filled Tucson airport on time.
The landlord of the house we are renting in the western hills suggested Teresa's Mosaic Cafe for lunch and it did not disappoint us with delicious tamales and tart lemonade. We then made our way to our home in the desert with amazing views of several different mountain ranges and surrounded by the amazing suguaros, many 100 years old as well as many other varieties of cactus, numerous birds.
The last time I was here I was three and I have no memory of that so this is all new. We are exploring places to spend a month or two in the winter and we have a good friend here.
More later.
