By: Fox in a Box Tucson Escape Room
Co-owner Caitlin moved to Tucson in 2009 to attend college at University of Arizona, and she LOVES Tucson. Co-Owner Neil moved to Tucson in 2012 for a chemical engineering position and he enjoys how welcoming Tucson is.
It's a city that feels like a small town. Tucson's uniqueness is illustrated through its many fun activities and friendly people. After running this escape room business for 1.5 years, we've noticed a lot of patterns! Local Tucsonans crave adventure and visitors thirst for exploration.
This list summarizes fun activities both locals and visitors can enjoy (even if you've done it before!) Whether you have family, friends, loved ones or co-workers that need a fun activity, check out our list below!
Why: Diverse parks, forests, deserts and mountains within 1 hour drive!
Even during the heat of the summer, you can still enjoy cool weather! During the hotter months, drive to the top half of Mt Lemmon for some fishing, great views, hiking or camping. You can also head to Madera Canyon to enjoy wonderful trees and birds! During cooler days, enjoy the desert areas for a quick warm up in the sun. If climbing, hiking or camping isn't your jam, bring some food and set up a picnic! *nom nom nom*
Why: Tucson's the first USA UNESCO City of Gastronomy!
Speaking of food, Tucson provides many cultural dining options. That's one of the reasons we were chosen to receive the UNESCO City of Gastronomy award! If food trucks or festivals aren't available when you get the itch to eat some amazing food, try some of our many local restaurants. Main Gate Square and other local places boast some of the best food and drinks in the country. And yes, food can be a fun activity!
Why: USA's biggest optics, a top space program, space museums and telescopes!
The city of Tucson is practically based off of being space friendly! Our lights throughout the city allow for better viewing of the night sky, and this means you can enjoy star gazing in our city! For even closer looks, you can visit telescope tours to view the stars and planets personally. If engineering, mechanics or aviation interest you, visit the Pima Air and Space Museum!
Why: Elephants, tapirs, lions, tigers, mountain lions, wolves, bighorn sheep, butterflies, etc!
This is a great example of how we have city features with a town like atmosphere. Visit Nandi, the young Elephant at Reid Park Zoo. Or walk through the desert at the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, where they host Sonoran Desert animals in natural habitats. If you love animals, visit one of our amazing conservancies, museums or zoo!
