El Presidio was high on my list of places to visit in Tucson because of my love of history. I was thrilled to learn the day I visited was a celebration of Arizona's entrance into the Union in 1912. The place was full of living history reenactors...Buffalo soldiers, Mexican soldiers marching about & firing the cannon, women cooking delicious treats & a musical group performing. Even on an ordinary day it is worth the price of admission just to learn about Tucson's early history. Best to go on a nice day as it is mostly outdoors.
