On Vacation in Arizona

Real Estate Agent with The Michigan Group - Livingston

Visiting the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, located 12 miles west of Tucson in the Tucson Mountains, is an outdoor experience of a lifetime. The museum has enchanted me with its exhibits of live animals in astonishingly natural settings, It's a world-renowned outdoor zoo, natural history museum and botanical garden, all in one place! There are almost 2 miles of paths traversing 21 acres of beautiful desert.  Exhibits re-create the natural landscape of the Sonoran Desert Region so realistically you find yourself eye-to-eye with mountain lions, prairie dogs, Gila monsters, and more. Within the Museum grounds, you will see more than 300 animals and 1,200 kinds of plants.

The mission of the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is to inspire people to live in harmony with the natural world by fostering love, appreciation, and understanding of the Sonora Desert,

 2/3 of this desert is located in Mexico and stretches North to encompass parts of Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas.

Glad to hear you are enjoying your vacation in Arizona.  The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum is wonderful.  Hopefully the weather is nicer now than when I was there during Super Bowl week.  It is good and chilly here in Michigan right now.

Sounds like you had a great time in Arizona.  I enjoyed it too when I went 8 years ago....  I'm sure much has changed since we have been there.  It is a beautiful country..... I love the USA.  Are you back in town?  Lu
