2022 Arizona Revisited

We have been traveling since 1978 and, while most trips are quite a trip, some are more “quite” than others. This was one. The 2022’s trip to Arizona was sort of another revistation of a previous trip. We did several new things as well as old favorites. We met in Phoenix and we drove to Tucson. Every attraction was interesting and some were surprising. This trip marked the most photos ever taken on a BNEAdventures and I hope you enjoy them. Now, get on a plane and recreate our visit!

The Desert Belle on Seguro Lake  (Their website)

When Bruce hits it out of the park he clears the Right Field wall. He did everything right on this one from making the reservation to getting in line to be among the first to board. This was such a great boat ride that I left the crew a $50 tip.

El Charo Restaurant (Their website.)

Tucson was in my sales territory for twenty-three years and I did tradeshows there twice a year. I never ate here before this Adventure. Bruce discovered it decades ago and it was an excellent place with excellent food. It’s worth a trip but make reservations or you will wait an hour before seating.

Gates Pass (Their website) 

We had to stop here so I could get a photo for my friend Maria Gates. It was a turnoff with a small parking area and an interpretive trail.

International Wildlife Museum (Their website) 

We spent hours here. It could have taken us days but we had other places to see. There are a lot of photos from this stop so spend some time looking at them. Better idea is to go there and see for yourself.

Liberty Wild Life Center (Their website)

After spending the day looking at dead stuffed animals it was nice to see real live ones. This place rescues injured and abandoned animals from the wild.

Pima Air Museum (Their website) 

Bruce finds places that he knows I’ll like and Pima Air Museum is a place I love. I have been there a dozen times and go every time I am in Tucson. I get nervous when he picks a place for me and I always hope he will find it interesting.  He did. This is a winner and you should go there. We have been to many air museums including  Hill Airforce Museum in Utah and Wright Patterson in Ohio. This is the best.
