Last week, I was in Tucson for the Structural Engineers of Arizona convention. It was my first time in Tucson in about 10 years, it being a common winter vacation destination in my childhood to visit family in the area.
It was my first time visiting during the summer, and it was HOT – about 100 degrees. But I finally believe what everyone says. It’s a dry heat. Chicago felt much hotter than Tucson when I got home. And the rates at gorgeous resorts like the West La Paloma are super affordable.
I didn’t have time to explore much of the city outside of the resort, but there are so many things to do in and around Tucson! The Desert Museum used to be a favorite for my family to visit when we were in town. There are lots of hiking options in the mountains – I want to go back and do the Seven Falls hike!
I hope to be back to visit again soon!
