MAX'S GUIDE TO TUCSON

FOOD SCENE
TUCSON is more and more becoming known for it's wonderful food scene. In fact, in 2016, UNESCO added Tucson to its growing CREATIVE CITIES NETWORK + gave the city the coveted title of UNESCO CAPITAL OF GASTRONOMY. But, not to worry! Along with all of this wonderful food, there is also an abundance of culture + nature to enjoy here as well. I hope you enjoy my hometown. - Max
TUMERICO is owned by a local chef who creates wonderful mostly vegan / vegetarian cuisine; it is all locally sourced, fresh, organic, raw, + very nourishing. I recommend the AL PASTOR TACOS made with jackfruit; or the CUBAN for the less spicy version. And the TUMERICO LEMONADE. Really delicious! PS Both of their locations are closed on MONDAYS.

TIME MARKET is a really wonderful place for great pizzas and sandwiches. My favorite pizza is their FIG + GOAT CHEESE (seasonal) and my favorite sandwiches are the GRINDERS or the CURRY TURKEY, or any of their specials are always wonderful. Really great coffee! OPEN 7 AM to 10 PM DAILY.

HOTEL CONGRESS is owned by family friends that I have known all of my life. They do a really incredible job, creating a very cool vibe in this historic hotel. (The story goes that this is where the gangster John Dillinger was captured! Check out the floor in the café covered with pennies. Really great food + bar. Local hangout.

TOHONO CHUL GARDEN BISTRO has a wonderful selection of really tasty food with a lot of local flavors. Try the PRICKLY PEAR LEMONADE (the color is an incredible bright fuchsia!) + MOLE or the VEGGIE HASH is really delicious. This former residence turned restaurant is made of 18" thick adobe walls, made on site, and Ponderosa Pine beams, brought down from MT LEMMON. Look for their HAPPY HOUR...

FIAMME PIZZA is the very best pizza in town. Their GF crust is thin but still chewy and completely and utterly delicious. Their CARCIOFI e PESTO is amazing : pesto sauce, artichokes, goat cheese + mozzarella. You can also find FIAMME at the SUNDAY FARMERS MARKET at the RILLITO FAIRGROUNDS (see listing). BUON APPETITO!

Try their MAC and CHEESE with bread crumbs + fresh chives, the olive oil roasted BRUSSEL SPROUTS (add bacon!), or their CHICKEN + BISCUITS. YUM!

DESERT DIGS
TOHONO CHUL PARK is a really great place to connect with the natural desert of TUCSON. They have weekly happenings to include walks, talks on birds, butterflies, or wildflowers. I especially like the HUMMINGBIRD GARDEN. (They also house the GARDEN BISTRO -- see our listing -- on the same property, that has a really great happy hour. PRICKLY PEAR MARGARITA for the win!

THE ARIZONA-SONORA DESERT MUSEUM is a must visit place while in Tucson. Located on the West side of Tucson, the drive up and around GATES PASS to the ASDM is truly breathtaking. Learn about the different types of desert flora and fauna while you breathe in the wonderful healing scents of the desert...sage...creosote... I especially recommend going after a Summer or Winter rain!

SABINO CANYON is the perfect place to take in a day hike while visiting TUCSON. There is actually a tram that will take you up to the 8 different stops if you like or just hike in, there are lots of trails that you can take for your own meander. Be prepared to see some desert critters on your walk or run -- it is unfiltered, nature at it's best.

ROADHOUSE CINEMAS is one of those gucci movie theaters with the big, cozy recliners that serve food and booze. What is not to like? They serve non GMO popcorn and host two of their icecream flavors from a local icecreamery called THE HUB on Congress. The ALMOND JOY vegan icecream was insanely good. Totally recommend this place for a fun diversion with the big screen.

YOGA
YOGA OASIS is one of the best places in town for yoga. There are three locations of which two are close by : one location is downtown on Congress Street and the other is on Campbell, near to Grant Road. I especially recommend classes by Jen B. or Tanya. They also have yogahour give! where 50% of the proceeds from this yogahour class supports local refugee families in need. All levels welcome.
