We spent two nights in Tucson at stayed at the Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa. It is a large resort with hacienda-style homes with an upscale Southwestern experience in the Sonoran Desert. With suites starting at 605 sq ft in size, the room was larger than my first apartment!
Bonus: Pets are permitted! With all the trails onsite for guests to enjoy, the resort is pet friendly and encourages families and their pets to explore nature among the privacy of the property.
With attention to comfort and privacy, your stay is complete with modern conveniences with service that matches your vacation style.
Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum
“The mission of the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is to inspire people to live in harmony with the natural world by fostering love, appreciation, and understanding of the Sonoran Desert.”
Walking through the outdoor collection, especially the cactus-filled botanical gardens gives you a first hand experience of the desert climate.
A fan and unique attraction – where Hollywood and the Wild Wild West converge. Originally built in 1939 as a set for the movie Arizona, the mock Wild West town setup has been used for more than 400 film, television and commercial productions since then. As a fully operational film studio, it is the premier film location for Western-themed productions and has become America’s “Hollywood in the Desert”.
Pima Air Space Museum
From the Wild West or the desert, you can deep dive into airspace at the Pima Air Space Museum. The large air space museum is the third largest in the world and features over 350 historical aircraft ranging from commercial aircraft to ones of historical significance. Learn the history of flight and aviation as you explore the inside hangars and outdoor exhibits as well as the memorials dedicated to aircraft used in World War II.
