Tooling Around The Old Pueblo

Mural on East 6th Street at 4th Avenue
I've been poking around trying to find some information on Tucson to see if there's anything new out there to do with my guests.  We've hit a few restaurants  - they've already been to Frank's (twice), El Charro Café, Bobo's (my first time), and the new Whole Foods.  That wasn't very exciting since we've all been to Whole Foods before, but it's also the first time I've been in the store since it was recently built.

Here are a five websites you can use to find out what's happening in the Old Pueblo.

The Tucson Weekly:  This alternative newspaper has been a Tucson staple for 30 years.  It's the first and most important publication in the town if you want movie times, concert information, cultural events locations, restaurant reviews, local news (the stuff you don't find in the regular paper), etc. You can also order a hooker or buy a used baby crib.  It's very handy.

Tucson Foodie:  This is a beautiful website.  They have everything from reviews on restaurants, bakeries, and cafes to information on CSAs, gardening and farming, and the local food movement.

Tucson in Style:  See what the locals are wearing, shop where they're buying it, and find out what else is happening in the world of Julie and Michael, the site's writers.

The Tucson Murals Project:  This is an interesting one.  I've seen many of these murals around town and I like that Jerry Peek has taken the time to highlight interesting art that often gets overlooked.

Tucson Audubon Society:  If you're into birds, check out some of the cute ones in our area.

Don't plan on returning to Tuscon anytime soon, so I won't be visiting any of the fine places you wrote about. But, that mural is beautiful!!!
