    Pima Air & Space Museum, 520-574-0462 and also go see the Titan Missile Museum 520-625-7736. They take you down in a missile silo and is very interesting.

    McMahan's steak house is high end steak house but very nice place to eat.

    The Arizona Desert Museum is interesting and features an art program sponsored by former trapshooting All American, Priscilla Baldwin, formerly from Hawaii.

    Lil' Abner's - good for steaks.

    El Charor's in downtown Tucson is excellent. Better go with an emptie stomach and be sure and try the Priclly Pear Margurita. Don't know if my spelling is correct.
    When ever we go we have to make two trips there for sure.

    THEBOY The Salt Cellar & Don & Charlies are both in Scottsdale?? Salt cellar sucked when I lived there but Don & Charlies is excellent and for a baseball fan it is even better. Tons of memorabilia. Their steaks are good but the ribs are their signature dish

    I can't believe nobody has mentioned Daisy Mays? I have eaten there everytime I have been in town and not once did I receive bad food. Lots of trapshooters were there. Great Steak House.
