Suggesions please:Dec trip to Tucson, Phoenix & Grand Canyon

We have 3 kids (11, 13 & 15) and are heading south for winter break. Fly into Tucson one night then staying with relative in Phoenix and planning a trip to Grand Canyon. Any suggestions on what to do in Tucson or Phoenix would be much appreciated (it is Dec. so I'm worried that a lot of stuff will be closed?). We are not golfers. Thanks for any help you can provide.

If you will only be in Tucson for one night, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is the one thing you should see.

You may also have time to drive through Saguaro National Park West on your way to I-10 after the Desert Museum.

Both the Phoenix zoo and the Desert Botanical Gardens have evening events featuring illuminations, lights, etc. Any musicians might enjoy the Musical Instrument Museum, also in Phoenix.

"Stuff" won't be closed in Tucson or Phoenix because it is December. Most attractions are open every day except Christmas. Grand Canyon NP and many other places are open every day 365/24/7.

December is the beginning, really, of high season in southern Arizona and Phoenix. Places are open.
