Things to Do

Pima Canyon

The trail is close to town (north of 1st Avenue and Ina Road) and goes out and back so you can hike as far as you want. Most hikers turn around at the dam for a 5-mile walk, about 4 hours for the leisurely hiker. You may miss the dam, a small structure and pond tucked into the west wall of the canyon. Beyond the dam the trail shows its lack of use and is rough and sometimes hard to follow. The trail gets steeper as you climb and has a few scrambles near the top. Count on a full day if Pima Saddle is your destination.

Trail Dust Town

In the early 1950s, Tucson was a sleepy desert community of approximately 45,000 people. It was then, as legend has it, well outside of the Tucson City limits, several 'Old West' buildings were constructed as a set for a Glenn Ford movie. Afterward, this conglomeration of buildings developed into a western-themed commercial complex known as Trail Dust Town. Pinnacle Peak Steakhouse quickly gained popularity and became the anchor of this complex. Today, Pinnacle Peak and Trail Dust Town are rich with their own history, and people come from all over the world to experience the old west at these centerpieces of Tucson. Don't miss a wild west stunt show by the Pinnacle Peak Pistoleros! Showing Wednesday through Sunday at 7 and 8 PM, the shows are full of lots of high-falls, low-falls, gunfights, fistfights, explosions, and family friendly slapstick comedy! Take a ride on the CP Huntington Railroad! The miniature train is fun for all ages, and its path reveals some of Trail Dust Town's hidden gems. Enjoy the carousel and Ferris wheel at Polly Anna Park! This new park is a beautiful area perfect for an evening of rides, popcorn, and taking in the blissful Tucson weather. Polly Anna Park is also available for birthday parties! Home to many shops, Trail Dust Town is a perfect destination for gifts and souvenirs. Trail Dust Town is also home to the elegant Savoy Opera House- a beautiful venue with Victorian charm. The Savoy is ideal for weddings, bar mitzvahs, quinceaneras, and more. The Museum Of The Horse Soldier features an impressive collection of original United States Cavalry artifacts. Uniforms, weapons, and equipment dating from the Civil War through the end of the mounted cavalry in 1942 are on display.

Great American Playhouse

Located in beautiful Oro Valley, Arizona an evening at The Great American Playhouse is always a treat for the whole family.

 Get to the Theatre plenty early. As you arrive for the evening’s performance, you will be greeted by glamorous ladies and dapper gents. They link their arms through yours and chat with you as they escort you to your seat.

The show starts before the curtain goes up, so come early and enjoy the entertainment before the first act. Drinks and free popcorn help provide early arrivals the energy to laugh and sing during the entire show.

In addition to all original, outrageous musical comedies we offer musical parodies of classic movies, TV shows, and Broadway hits, with a melodramatic twist! Each show also features a high-energy variety show we call ‘The Olio’ following the play with more singing, dancing and comedy. It’s 2 shows in 1!

From the time you enter the theatre, you escape to a place with no worries of everyday life. While you are waiting for the start of the show, you will be treated to a dazzling display of piano pyrotechnics playing music to sing-along. Leave your inhibitions outside!

When the show starts, be ready to boo and hiss the dastardly villains who justly deserve our scorn. Cheer for the wholesome heroes and innocent heroines, because they truly deserve our praise. The Great American Playhouse actors love audience participation. Who knows, maybe you’ll be dragged on stage! Sing along and tap your feet to the music of the olio performers who make sure that no-one gets bored between acts.

A variety of tasty food selections are optional and can be ordered right at your table. The menu includes pizza, cheese crisps, sausage and meatball sandwiches, ice cream treats, beer, wine and soft drinks.

San Xavier Plaza

The Mission was created to serve the needs of the local community here, the village of Wa:k (San Xavier District) on the Tohono O'odham reservation, as it still does today. We have people from all over the country, and the world, wanting to have their special event here at the mission, and sometimes that can be accommodated, but the policy of the Mission staff is to only do Marriages, Baptisms, ect. for the local community.   Everyone is welcome to attend masses, special celebrations (like feast days), etc., but it is our belief that one's sacramental life should be shared within a person's local parish community.  We do not rent out the church.
