Oregon will star in another episode of Pac-12 After Dark when the Ducks face Arizona at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. If you have a day to spend in Tucson, here are five things to do and see.
Relive your college days at Dirtbag's.
Check out this popular campus hangout where generations of Arizona students have celebrated Wildcat victories (mostly in basketball) and spent their tuition money on Bud Light. Order the famous "Dirtburger" or try a shot called the Scooby Snack. As the slogan says, it's part of growing up.
Head down to Fourth Avenue
This eclectic shopping and dining district features some of the best food and drink Tucson has to offer. Get a Meso Mocha at Cafe Passe, hit Isabella's Ice Cream or try a signature burger at Lindy's Diner.
See a giant cactus at Saguaro National Park
The largest cacti in the U.S. are found in this national park, which is divided into two parts on the east and west sides of Tucson. You can hike, camp or view the Native American drawings at the Signal Hill petroglyph area.
Cowboy it up at Old Tucson
This Old West-themed attraction, known as "Hollywood in the Desert," was the the set of more than 400 westerns, including "The Outlaw Josey Wales," "Rio Bravo," and episodes of "Bonanza."
Play a round of desert golf
Arizona is known for its stunning desert golf courses, and the Tucson area is home to several gems. The website golfarizona.com recommends several options, including the Omni Tucson National Resort, the Jack Nicklaus-built La Paloma Country Club and the resort courses at Ventana Canyon.
