The Best of Tucson HOP

March 24, 2017

After a busy week at Escapade, you might like to take a relaxing HOP or two. Let us do the driving, while you can sit back, relax and enjoy!



HOPs are fun and exciting, especially when shared with your fellow SKP friends.


Board a luxury coach with a local tour guide and enjoy the scenic view of the beautiful countryside, the mountains, the deserts, while learning about the rich western heritage of Tucson.



On this excursion, we will:

· Enjoy a scenic drive through the Tucson Mountain Park, a part of the beautiful Sonoran Desert, to visit the Old Tucson Film Studios. These studios are a re-creation of an old 1880s western town, built by Columbia studios. John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara movies were shot there, as well as other western movies and TV shows. We’ll watch gun fights, see live shows in the Grand Palace and stroll through the movie museum and a native village. Ride on the Old Tucson train. We will also have a guided walking tour, along with many other fun activities and attractions, as we learn the fascinating history of the Old American West.


· Bring comfortable walking shoes and enjoy the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. This includes a 98-acre zoo that was founded to help promote conservation. Housed there, are over 200 native mammals, reptiles, amphibian, insects, and birds including several species of hummingbirds. It also has an aquarium, botanical garden, natural history museum and an art gallery.


· The beautiful Mission San Xavier del Bac, also known as “The White Dove of the Desert”, was built in the 1700s. It was founded as a Catholic mission and is a National Historic Landmark. The mission is considered to be one of the finest examples of the Spanish Colonial architecture.

Schedule is subject to change.

There will be a considerable amount of walking, so please bring comfortable walking shoes, binoculars, a hat, sunscreen, as well as a camera for those breathtaking photo ops.
