There are three key ingredients to a great town or city: soul, sustenance and youth.  If a town has all three plus scenery or major points of interest (national park, monument, preserve…) or both, then it gets bumped from great town to great destination. hiking in Tucson Tucson has a little of each and made it in our top five destinations for Arizona.

Located on the eastern edge of Tucson Arizona, Voyager RV Resort consistently gets top reviews from Woodall’s, Good Sam and others.   After staying for a week at this resort we were officially on board with being a snowbird! Sure the price was a little more than some of the other area resorts but here, you get what you pay for.  This resort was all about the amenities and activities, more so than any other resort we have ever been too!

We have been fans of Stone Brewery and their knock you in the face with flavor beers for a while now.  So the new Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens immediately made the top of our to-do list for the San Diego area. stone brewery Stone likes to be different and even considered to be some very arrogant bastards when it comes to their beer.  So of course, nothing about the Bistro & Gardens is average.

If you’ve ever driven across the vast deserts of Arizona you know it holds many treasures, however few compare to the stunning Mission San Xavier del Bac. The mission is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona and claims to be ‘the best example of Spanish Colonial architecture in the US’.  Affectionately called the ‘White Dove of the Desert” this Baroque designed mission was built in the late 1700’s by Franciscans to spread Christianity to the Native Americans (actually the mission was founded in 1692, but the church you see today came nearly 100 years later). _MG_3532
