If you want to stay relatively close to the ground but still high enough to get butterflies in your stomach, rock climbing is a good way to experience the glorious heights nature has to offer. Mt. Lemmon (mtlemmon.com) is home to some of the best rock climbing in the state, with more than 2,700 rock climbing routes, including single-pitch clip-ups and multi-pitch traditional courses.

Maybe flying isn’t good enough for you and you’d rather go to the extreme. Try freefalling out of an airplane with Skydive Arizona (skydiveaz.com), located an hour outside of Tucson in Eloy. Tandem jumps are available for those who want to skydive with an experienced instructor. There is also an indoor wind tunnel located at basecamp that allows you to hone your freefall skills; great for kids, parties and family as well. Experienced skydivers can check their website for skydiving events, such as night jumps and more.

Arizona Zipline Adventures (zipari zona.com) and their Zipline EcoTour,

which includes five ziplines ranging from 400 to 1,500 feet that will have you zipping across the Sonoran Desert attached to a suspended cable. The longest run is a dual line, enabling friends and family to zip across together. They also have a Moonlight and Sunset Zipline Experience that allows you to zip across the moonlit sky or feast your eyes on the vibrant colors of the desert during sunset. After a long day of gliding, grab a burger at their Peppersauce Station Kitchen.

WHERE NOW Tucson

Sonoran’s Finest Tucson is a hotbed of eateries that provide the best Sonoran hot dogs available in the U.S. However, recent James Beard Award winner and El Güero Canelo owner Daniel Contreras feels if you are going to truly eat the best dogs around, you should get them straight from its brithplace across the border, Sonora.

Q: You have your own bakery and tortilla factory in your hometown of Magdalena de Kino. What does that do for the quality of food you serve in your restaurants back in Tucson? A: When you have your own meat market and you have your own bakery, then you can control quality. When you get the meat and the bread from somewhere else, you can’t control quality as well. That’s the reason we opened the bakery, meat market and tortilla factory.

Q: They are really big on the Old West reenactments here. Any favorites? A: Yes, we go to Old Tucson, they play a lot of the old films and really do a good job.

Q: You have three locations in Tucson. What do you love most about Tucson? A: The people. Everything is about the people.

Q: Have you heard of the Mexican baseball fiesta held in Tucson? A: Oh, yes. We supported them for the first three years. We made a huge profit off of those games [laughing].

Q: What is the biggest change you have seen from when you first opened until now? A: I used to sell around 10,000 hot dogs a week from one store; we sell that much in about three days now. Q: Having been born in Sonora, Mexico, in the town of Magdalena de Kino, why did you choose Tucson to open your first hot dog stand and eventually your first restaurant? A: The reason I chose Tucson is that my family immigrated from Mexico to Tucson; my mom was a U.S. citizen. Q: Why hot dogs? A: When I opened a hot dog stand back in 1993, there was no original authentic restaurant, with original authentic Mexican

food like carne asada. I have the best carne asada in the world, too. From the grill to your mouth. The reason for the hot dog stand was because that used to be my dinner— three or four hot dogs and a soda. Q: You have your very own meat market—why did you open your own market instead of getting it from a third party? A: My supplier wasn’t giving me the quality meat every day, so I opened my own one five, six years ago to supply my restaurant.

18 W H E R E T U C S O N I S P R I N G / S U M M E R 2018

Q: How did you feel when you were announced as a James Beard Award winner? A: I didn’t know anything about it so I was surprised. It’s still not in my head. This is huge. May 7th in Chicago, [I’m taking] my wife and my two kids. Q: In Tucson, it gets pretty hot in the summer. Any places you like to go to get away from the heat? A: Yes, all my places have air-conditioning. Some great ice cream places around here too.

Q: You were a pretty good baseball player as a kid. How does that help you in terms of being a successful restaurant owner? A: Yes, I love baseball. That’s my other passion. [After the game] I was so hungry for Mexican food, for something authentic, something original.

Q: When you have friends visiting from out of town, is there anything you recommend they do while visiting Tucson? A: We have a lot of places to go in Tucson. We have Mt. Lemmon, we have nice hotels for tennis and for golfing. If you want to take it easy, you have to come to Tucson. Q: Any other great Sonoran restaurants you would recommend? A: My restaurant, also El Molinito, I was there yesterday for my son’s birthday. Tucson is the Mexican food capital. If someone wants to eat a Sonoran hot dog, they’ve got to go to El Güero Canelo’s.

ART HISTORY

Wildcat Art Art tends to take hold of one’s thoughts through inspiration, beauty and admiration, but one aspect of art that is never overlooked is its ability to preserve the history and culture of the past. This very reason is why art conservation at the University of Arizona is so valuable—because so many of its pieces tell a story that helps paint a picture of the Southwest’s indigenous people. Visit any of the following museums and transport yourself into Tucson’s captivating past.

ARIZONA STATE MUSEUM The oldest and largest anthropology museum in the region, the Arizona State Museum is home to some fascinating artifacts created by ancient residents of the land—including the Hohokam of central and southern Arizona and the Hopi people of northern Arizona. The museum’s current exhibit, “Life Along the River,” educates visitors on the inhabitants of seven villages along the Little Colorado River through maps, artifacts and dialogue of present-day Hopi. Open through June 2019. statemuseum.arizona.edu CENTER FOR CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY This center is one of the highest-quality art museums and study centers for photography on earth,

and is the largest institution in the world strictly dedicated to documenting the history of North American photography. These scenes captured in time include a collection of over 90,000 works by more than 2,200 photographers. ccp.arizona.edu THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA MUSEUM OF ART This is home to over 5,000 pieces of art, sculptures, prints and drawings, ranging from European and American Renaissance works to present day. The museum also houses a Western Art collection, which appears in the current exhibit “The Myth and Mirror: Artwork of the American West,” which explores the region’s history.

by the city, the eastern Rincon and western Tucson mountain ranges are about an hour drive apart. Both offer hiking, biking and horseback-riding trails, as well as loop roads for motorized expeditions. The Rincon district is the more ecologically diverse of the two areas, giving visitors the opportunity to experience low-lying desert and high-country forest in a single day. In the Tucson district, hundreds of petroglyphs left by ancient Native tribes can be spotted easily from the Signal Hill picnic site. www.nps.gov/sagu. Park headquarters: 3693 S.

MOUNT LEMMON— The great Mount

Lemmon is named after one of its first recorded conquerors: Sara Plummer Lemmon, a botanist, who in 1881, became the first woman to reach its summit. Nowadays, you don’t have to be a pioneer to reach the 9,157-foot peak, but a daredevil streak doesn’t hurt. The Catalina Highway winds up, down and around Mount Lemmon, roller-coaster-style, coming to a halt in the little mountaintop town of Summerhaven. Gorgeous overlooks along the highway—with such curious names as Hoodoo at Windy Point, Sykes Knob and Inspiration Rock—afford mileslong views of the city and desert below. Tanque Verde Road, northeast to Catalina Highway. Tucson Map F1

SAGUARO NATIONAL PARK— This

sprawling expanse of protected land filled with stately saguaro cacti flanks Tucson to the east and west. Separated

marina to navigate along the 2.5-milelong lake. Set up camp and fish for dinner. www.azstateparks.com/patagonia-lake. 400 Patagonia Lake Road, Patagonia, 520.287.6965. Arizona Map E7

SCOTTSDALE— You can still buy a

cowboy hat, a pair of cowboy boots, Western and American Indian art, souvenirs and a hand-scooped sundae here. An influx of hipster investors and a boom in infill development have just added edgier art galleries, trendy gelato shops and mixed-use high-rise developments to the landscape. Pedestrians have it easy, events and festivals are plentiful, and parking is still free. Scottsdale is also home to the largest aquarium in the Southwest U.S., the Odysea Aquarium, and interactive rainforest Butterfly Wonderland. Drive time from Tucson: 90 to 120 minutes. www.experiencescottsdale. com. Arizona Map C5 TOMBSTONE— This Old West town is

the site of the legendary gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Ideal stop en route to Bisbee. From Phoenix: Interstate 10 east to Highway 80 east, approximately 3 hours. www.tombstonechamber .com. Arizona Map X12

Itching for some live music and entertainment? The (1) Rialto Theatre has all of the above with artists such as Vince Staples, Wyclef Jean, Los Lobos, Steve Aoki and more performing. For a classical evening, check out the (2) Tucson Symphony Orchestra, as they perform symphonies from Beethoven and Mozart, and family events such as the live music symphony of Harry Potter. (3) Fox Tucson Theatre opened in 1930 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Live performances range from jazz and pop to rock and ballets.

Lovebirds will relish the opportunity to dine at (1) Le Rendez-vous as its French ambiance and delectable meals will have both of you feeling relieved you didn’t stay in and watch a movie. (2) Maynard’s Market and Kitchen is another good place to check out for a dinner date, as its wine list has received numerous awards for its spectacular selection. Speaking of wine, if the two of you are seeking an adventure just outside Tucson, (3) Charron Vineyards will be sure to deliver, with gourmet picnics available to enjoy with your wine-tasting experience.

If you want to have a little fun without breaking the bank in the Old Pueblo, (1) Tumacácori National Historical Park is a great way to spend a day outdoors and take a hike along the Santa Cruz River, for a small $5 fee. If it’s too hot to wander about, as it often is, (2) Oro Valley Aquatic Center will be sure to cool you off at a low price, or you can stay indoors and check out the (3) Children’s Museum with the little ones, as they have exhibits ranging from the educational and visual arts, to music and nature. The third of each month is $3 admission day.
