Unique Outings for Groups
Get beyond the ballroom and give your guests a sense of Southern Arizona.
When planning activities for a meeting, there are some things you can do just about anywhere, but why would you? Free yourself from ordinary group outings with some activities that are truly unique to Tucson. Check out these excursions in and around Tucson that you won’t find anywhere else:
One of the most beautiful hikes in the area, Sabino Canyon is as beautiful as it is rugged. It’s a natural oasis in the desert, featuring abundant plant and wildlife, as well as waterfalls on Sabino Creek. The canyon can be explored on foot, bike or by taking the tram that runs into the Santa Catalina Mountains.
Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum
A unique fusion of zoo, botanical garden, natural history museum, aquarium and art gallery, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is everything interesting about the Sonoran desert in one spot. Open year round, it features live animal presentations and one of the best regional mineral collections in the world.
Kitt Peak National Observatory
Tucson has clear skies 350 days out of the year, making it a perfect place for viewing celestial bodies. High up in the mountains, Kitt Peak National Observatory takes advantage of this with its massive telescopes. Daily and nightly programs led by docents give you an unparalleled look at the sky.
The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures
Travel around the world and back in time with The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures. Expertly crafted in minute detail, every piece in the museum makes up its own story. It’s a truly one-of-a-kind experience you won’t find elsewhere, that makes for a fun and charming outing.
