Day 1 - Tucson


The Blue Willow has one of the best breakfasts in town. From there head out to the San Xavier Mission and then over to the desert museum. Ironwood Terraces offers a decent lunch at the museum. Take a late afternoon drive (or a hike if you're up for it) through Saguaro National Park. If you time it right, Gates Pass offers a great view of the sunset. Then it's on to Cafe Poca Cosa for one of the best Mexican dinners in Tucson.
