BBOnline recommends your family visit the following locations while visiting in Tucson.

Old Tucson Studios
201 S. Kinney Rd.
Tucson, AZ 85735
(520) 883-0100

Visit Old Tucson Studios and get a taste of what the Old West was like...from the old Hollywood movies, that is. This was once the set of a Western movie and it's been turned into an Old West theme park. Take a train ride or watch actors battle it out in faux gun-slinging fights on the main street of the park. William Holden's movie "Arizona" from 1939 was shot here, and to this day, they still use parts of the park to shoot commercials, and some movies too.

Breakers Water Park
8555 W. Tangerine Road
Marana, AZ  85653
(520) 682-2304

A short 20-minute drive away from your Tucson Bed and Breakfast is The Breakers Water Park. Enjoy riding on five different super slides at The Bonzai Pipeline; check out Captain Kidd's Surfari wave pool which is a better size for the littler ones, Arizona's mega wave pool called Breakers Bay, or maybe Splash Canyon which consists of all-age tube slides into a huge wave pool and waterfall. There's something cool and fun for everyone here whether you're looking to relax and do a little simulated surfing or are a thrill seeker looking for those mega drop water slides.

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum
2021 N Kinney Rd
Tucson, Arizona 85743
Phone: (520) 883-1380
http://www.desertmuseum.org/

Looking for a fun way to spend the day at the zoo during your Tucson travel adventures? Then check out The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum which houses over 300 animal species and 1,000 or more types of plants. This large, entertaining 21-acre compound consists of a zoo, botanical garden and natural history museum. The exhibits are similar to what you'd find out in the actual Sonoran Desert Region so the creatures like prairie dogs, Gila monsters and mountain lions feel right at home here. Be prepared to walk as the paths leading around the property equal approximately 2 miles in total length.

Funtasticks Tucson
221 East Wetmore Road
Tucson, Arizona 85705
(520) 888-4653

Kartchner Caverns State Park 

P.O. Box 1849
Benson, AZ 85602
(520) 586-2283

Approximately an hour away from your Tucson Inn you'll find a spectacular natural wonder called Kartchner Caverns State Park. The inside of the cave was first discovered in the 1970s and it's been well cared for ever since, showcasing the beautifully multi-colored cave formations it grows. This is due to the location having wet caves that ensure the formations' continued growth.
