Our family of 4 (2 kids 10 and 12) is traveling to Arizona in mid-April. We are planning to spend 3 nights in the Tucson area. We'd like to visit the the Desert Museum, Saguaro NP West, possibly Sabino Canyon and the Titan Missile Museum or Pima Air and Space. We would want to go into Tucson 1 or 2 evenings for dinner/Old Town Artisans. We'll be heading out of town I-10 east towards Las Cruces - so I'm thinking we can go to Tombstone and Kartchner Caverns that day (without returning to Tucson).
We'd like to get a vacation rental - somewhat limited by short stay. Some preference for being outside of town. I can't find anything for days/price in Catalina Foothills (though still looking). Just wondering about best location of the following:
Barrio Sapo - Western slopes of Tucson Mtns (looks just outside Saguaro NP West
"Tucson Mtn foothills"
near Saguaro East NP (guessing this makes least sense)
Thanks in advance.
