Wonderful art gallery and miscellaneous items in the heart of Tucson. Since most people were at the Gem and Mineral Show, so not crowded. Nice cafe next door for a beer and sandwich. Nice walk from the parking ramp. Recommend

Surrounded by modern buildings sits the remnants of an ancient fort. A true look at how far we have come from such difficult times. We had a very knowledgeable guide that gave a great view of how people lived 200+ years ago.

The reenactments and the people who told about life in the days when El Presido Park was inhabited was very interesting. My grandsons thoroughly enjoyed it when the cannon was shot off!

After living in Tucson, Arizona over 20 years, my wife and I stumbled into a very neat little piece of history. While attending to business downtown in the government offices, we were headed back to our vehicle parked in the Lohse YMCA parking facility on...More

We walked to the Presidio area from where we were staying at Hotel Arizona. It was very hot so the cool shady garden that the cafe is set in was nice. There are also artisan shops surrounding the area with quality art and craft. It...More
