"The White Dove of the Desert" is a must see. One of my favorite sites to visit in Tucson. Go inside the church, peek into the chapel, walk around and admire the architecture, cute gift shop. Eat Indian Fry Bread prepared by a native from the Tohono O'odham tribe fried on an open air mesquite…
Located on the Tohoho O'Odham Nation, this adobe church was established by Father Kino. People still go to church there. You may be able to buy frybread outside, cooked on mesquite fires, under mesquite shade structures.
Take a drive to visit the white dove of the desert, the San Xavier del Bac Mission. There are often Native American food stands in the area too!
“Museum is a misnomer. This is really a nature park, dedicated to all things desert. You'll find all sorts of plants and animals and leave with a great overview of our world. We highly recommend the Raptor Show, which only happens during the cooler months.”
“This is a world-class air and space museum, located just south of the Air Force base.”
“Much smaller than big city botanical gardens but lovely to stroll through. Another nice way to get outside. ”
“Amazing Mexican food in historic, family owned spot with great ambience. A fun way to end a day of sightseeing downtown!”
