I have lived in Tucson for 30 years and am sorry to say this was my first visit here...but it won't be my last! In the heart of downtown Tucaon, (133 Washington St.), the Presidio was founded in 1775 by the Spaniards to protect native peoples and colonists. Some of the original walls still exist.

My family and I decided to do The Presidio Trail, a historical walking tour of Downtown Tucson. We've been going to Tucson for years, but had never actually been downtown. We found a brochure at the airport for the self-guided tour, which starts at the Presidio. First of all, even though there is a map and street signs pointing this... More
