Sabino Canyon by far has the loveliest views in all of Tucson. I took a group of women there, there is a fee to get into the canyon but if you have a golden age pass, it's free to get in. We took the tram ride, and 5 out of the 7 of us had never been in Sabino, they were thrilled with it. The scenery is breathtaking...you have a narrated tour for $8.00 per person. The tram leaves every half hour from 9 on. At night they had tram rides near the full moon for $9.00 pp. You can get on and off as many times as you wish before getting back to Stop 1. There are 9 stops. At the top they only stop for 3 minutes. It's best to get on and off, hike a little to get a real feel of the canyon. I have hiked in there many many times and absolutely love it, especially the Phone Line Trail. I think the best thing to do if it's not too hot is pack a nice lunch, there are many lovely spots to picnic.
