    »Arizona State Museum

    This is the oldest archaeological museum in the Southwest, and the best place in Tucson to learn about the life of Arizona's Indians, both past and present. Impressive displays of Indian art tell the cultural history of the American Southwest and Northern Mexico. There is also a good natural history section demonstrating earth and climate changes in the area. The museum shop sells related books and crafts.

    »El Presidio Park

    In 1775, the Spanish army staked its claim to this land (now the state of Arizona) by building the fortress, or presidio, which would soon become the center of Tucson. Both the Spanish and the fortress are long gone now, and all that's left of the presidio is a plaque reminding visitors of the events hundreds of years ago. It's a park now, used for fiestas and other celebrations, surrounded by tall 1970s style office buildings. There's not much history left here aside from the Pima County Courthouse, but it's still a nice place to rest and enjoy a picnic lunch in the shade.

    »Himmel Park

    Himmel Park was voted Best Playground in Tucson by the readers of the Tucson Weekly, and with some justification. The park actually has three playgrounds. The westside section, near the pool, contains the toddlers' structure with beginner's slides and swings; then, there's more swings and the popular Giganto Slide of Death for the bigger kids, while the northeast side features a big climbing structure with several platforms and even more swings. All areas have lots of sand and picnic areas around them. Keep this place in mind if you're traveling with two-10 year olds.

    »Sentinel Peak

    The locals commonly refer to this high elevation peak, just west of downtown, as "A" Mountain because since 1915, University of Arizona students have whitewashed the letter "A" on its eastern slope. Its history, however, goes much further back: it was at the foot of this mountain that the earliest traces of human settlements in the Tucson area were found. The top of the mountain offers one of the best panoramic views of the Tucson basin, as well as a few BBQ grills.

    »Palo Duro Creek Golf Course

    Located 10 minutes south of Amarillo, Palo Duro Creek Golf Club enjoys year-round play. Palo Duro Creek Golf Club was designed by noted Colorado golf course architect, Henry Hughes. The golf course was built in 1959 with the front nine completed first and opened as Hunsley Hills Country Club, followed by the present back nine completed several years later. The course was renamed after the creek that flows through the golf course and comes into play on 14 of the 18 holes. Palo Duro Creek Golf Club is recognized as one of the most challenging layouts in the area.
