Maybe it was just be, but I thought Kartchner Caverns was a big bore. Yawn. It might be more fun if you're not corralled and escorted through the whole thing.

I've heard San Xavier can be 'done' in an hour or so, but they have yummy fry bread while you're there. Pass on Old Tucson, too.

Check out the Desert Museum, though. This is my favorite place to take folks that are visiting and everyone so far has really loved it. Matter of fact, we're going tomorrow afternoon!

Thanks for all the input.

This trip is to get that first impression of the area. Plus give my wife a "vacation" since my son and I won't be around to bug her for a week.

The plan is to return again in the future to focus more on the practical side of things, if we like what we see. I'm hoping to check out some houses since the style and how communities are setup can be real different then what I'm used to. Houses built on top of each other isn't very common up here. Yes, I know not everyplace in AZ is tract housing.

It's gonna be a fun experience.

Right know the two areas I've kinda looked at the online MLS for have been Vail and Rancho Sahurita. RS since I know someone there and it seems decent, though I don't know how good the HS is there. Vail since I heard the schools there are supposedly pretty good. All that really matters is the HS.

We're both excited about this trip, so it should be fun.

I second the Desert Museum. It is a fantastic place to learn a lot about what the local landscape is like and wildlife. My kids loved it and we took the inlaws there and they thought it was a wonderful museum.

I know I'm a bit late, but I want to thank everyone again for the ideas. We're flying out in less then 2 days, unless I find out my son is scared of flying lol.

I hear it'll be in the upper 80s. We have shorts and sunscreen, so I'm thinking we are good to go. Really looking forward to it.

If you are leaving in 2 days...if he is afraid to fly...just 'trank' him, you have your tickets...you will be there....Enjoy He'll get over it...

you can hit the desert museum and then Old Tucson Studios "Hollywood in the desert" is just across the road. Not as good as it used to be but still a fun family day.
