Ahhh the weekend! This weekend I have a graduation party for my daughter, my son’s golf match, a birthday dinner for a dear friend and finale episode of Game of Thrones. Yes, I blocked out 2 hours for that on Sunday…don’t judge me! If I had some time to do explore I would check out some of the family friendly options, have a girls night out or maybe head out for a mini-road trip option below or temps are expected to be in the low 80’s. That’s great hiking weather. Check out https://www.visittucson.org/things-to-do/outdoor-adventure/hiking/10-great-tucson-area-hikes for a refresher on where to go!
