Tucson Arizona is known for the astonishing landscape that surrounds it, which you can explore in the Saguaro National Park and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, as well as its buzzing 4th Avenue, full of boutiques, galleries and restaurants. But if you’re looking for unique things to do in Tucson there is plenty of that.

Rillito Park Farmers Market

One of the great things about choosing vacation rentals for your accommodation is the access to a kitchen that allows you to pick up local food and prepare it back at your place. The Rillito Park Farmers Market is the largest in the area, and you can visit there year round to see what ranchers, artisan food producers and local farmers have to offer.

Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures

For something very different and unique, there’s this museum of miniatures where hundreds of figurines, room boxes and other types of exhibits create three different realms for exploration: the History and Antique Gallery, the Enchanted Realm and Exploring the World. The founders are longtime miniature collectors and enthusiasts, and you’ve never seen anything quite like what they’ve put together here.

Hotel Congress

History buffs won’t be able to resist a stop at this swanky hotel famous for being the site of the capture of the 1930s gangster John Dillinger. However, even if gangsters don’t interest you, you’ll want to pay a visit to check out the gorgeous interior along with the bar, restaurant and live music venue.

Diamondback Bridge

A local artist designed this unmissable pedestrian bridge that is an anatomically accurate rendition of a giant rattlesnake. The best or most alarming element of the bridge, depending on your point of view, is the rattled “goodbye” that you get from hidden speakers as you exit the structure.

Valley of the Moon

This is one of the most magical places you’ll visit anywhere. The vision of artist George Phar Legler, he bought the land to begin creating this wonderland in 1917, and it’s full of stone grottos, wandering little paths and fairy-tale towers.
