I smoked my first hookah here, and it was actually pretty fun.
The place is adorned with plenty of floor pillows and curtains to give it a sort of Arabian Nights feel.
And the selection of tobaccos is very large.
Cool place to veg out with a group of friends.
Casbah is truly a hippie destination.
They serve lots of organic, vegetarian/vegan dishes and organic teas, and they support lots of home-grown artists and music.
Very interesting atmosphere, but quite relaxed.
Come and mellow out with free wi-fi here.
Galloway is the nicest public course in the city, and because it is public, the price is still quite reasonable.
However, not the easiest course, and the course is surrounded by very expensive homes. So if you're new to the game, start out at Overton, or you could be sorry.
For a golfing novice, this is a good place to play your first nine-holes.
The course is easy and very straightforward, so you can usually make par and find your next hole.
The price for a game of golf is also one of the cheapest in the city.
Tucson Metro is the only way you'll play soccer in the city and have a plethora of teams to play against, however the refs are absolute crap.
If there was an alternative, I'd take it, but you're kind of forced to deal with it. Otherwise, you're playing soccer by yourself!
I was once invited to an event at Skyline, and I was treated like absolute royalty.
The breakfast and lunch that was served here was delectable, and the golf was even better.
This place is nestled right next to the mountains, and the grass is perfectly green.
Absolutely beautiful club and course. Look forward to returning next year. :)
I was raised on the San Diego Zoo, but I found that the Memphis Zoo isn't too shabby, either.
They do have a pretty broad collection of exhibits, and my favorite part is that Tuesdays are free w/ student ID or Tennessee drivers license.
It may be crowded on those days, but this really is a good-sized zoo, so you can get around.
Reid Park Zoo is small, but well maintained. And of course, because it's Tucson, you can go all year long and be comfortable.
The price to get in is fair compared to other places I've been. However, here's something I've never seen: you can pet and feed the giraffe! There isn't a petting zoo, but you can pay $2 to feed and pet the giraffe!
And yes, it's worth it.
When I was a kid, my cousin got me hooked on b-rated Filipino films, and this place has a good selection of them.
But as far as food, there is enough there to make simple Filipino dishes (like lumpia!).
The prices are a tad bit higher here, but you'll be paying the same amount if you go to AJ's or Safeway. Or, if you have access to the base, they usually have a little more Filipino selection than your average grocery store.
If you want to play a round of mini golf in Tucson, you want to go here. Not Magic Carpet. That place is terrifying...
This place can get a tad busy, but there's two sets of 18 holes, so it moves along. Plus, the obstacles are actually challenging...not lame.
Prices are decent here, as well.
