Shopping & Relaxation - Half-Day Itinerary

The Perfect Combo

We know that shopping can sometimes be hectic, but we also know that there is nothing better than being able to stroll through a shop and leisurely browse or have fun with a group of friends where shopping is only part of the objective. That's why we've put together these great suggestions of Tucson locations that perfectly blend serenity and shop-ability (with a dash of fun for good measure).


The La Encantada Alphabet Game

While at the luxurious outdoor shopping area at La Encantada, visit each store with the first letter in the store name that corresponds to a letter the alphabet. There will be some letters that can be found within a store name, but who cares, these stores are to die for! The goal is to complete a stamp card with 26 stars. The group or individual who finishes first will receive a prize/prizes (subject to change depending on the size of the group).

Attendees: no min./no max.  

Length: 2 hours 

Availability: Only available mornings from 10 a.m. to noon on weekdays. Groups will be given a shopping tote, bottled water, and La Encantada's Shopping & Dining Rewards Card, that features specials and discounts to restaurants and retailers.
