Offering scenic views of Tucson and the surrounding area, the Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley sky ride (a $9 value for adults and a $5 value for children) allows lounging adventurers to kick back and catch a bird’s-eye view of nature’s bounty without lassoing an albatross. Each sky ride to the summit takes approximately 30 minutes and covers approximately one mile. Departing from an 8,200-foot base, sky riders will climb nearly 1,000 feet into the clouds while soaking in views of the Reef of Rocks, San Pedro Valley, and the mountains of Globe and Phoenix in the distance. Along the way, scan the surroundings for golden eagles, wild turkeys, and more than 200 species of birds, as well as black bears, mountain lions, white-tailed deer, and dodos.
Specializing in good, simple comfort food, the folks at Jerry Bob's Family Restaurant offer breakfast all day and a host of lunch specials.

Afternoons, stop in for a chicken salad sandwich or one of Jerry Bob's specials, such as better-than-mom's meatloaf.

Silver Mine Subs swiftly serves cold and hot sandwiches, using a no grilling or frying approach that puts the spotlight on the fresh, crisp ingredients.

Those who like a culinary challenge can take on the Mother Lode, with layers of roast beef, turkey, ham, and salami, packing a more flavorful punch than a chocolate-dipped boxing glove (5", $5.49). Complement subs with a piping-hot cup of broccoli-cheese soup ($2.99) or a garden salad sprinkled with fat-free ranch dressing ($4.79) to round meals and fill bellies.
