Fall Semester

Totally Tucson Goes to Bisbee

Bisbee has been voted the best historic small town in the country by the readers of USA Today, and you’ll see what when you come visit this special place with us every September! This trip begins with a tour of the Queen Mine, guided by a former miner. Then attendees are able to explore historic Old Bisbee, home to antique shops and other quirky places as well as lots of excellent restaurants. The trip ends with a stop at Lavender Pit scenic view.

Totally Tucson Goes to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum has been voted one of the best zoos in the country, also by readers of USA Today. Join us every November for a trip to this educational and fun exploration of life in this unique desert environment we live in.

Totally Tucson Goes Somewhere New!

January is usually when Totally Tucson tries a brand new trip! We've gone everywhere from the Wild West town of Tombstone, Arizona to Mercado San Agustin, and we're always thinking of fun new places to try! Check out our this website, as well as our Facebook and Instagram, at the beginning of the year for info on our latest trip!
