Touring your home city can be as fun as touring your own back yard, without all the unpleasant odors and discoveries of cheesecakes from parties long past. Opt for the twilight Barrio Viejo walking tour, and meet on either Tuesday, May 18, at 5:45 p.m. or Thursday, June 24, at 6 p.m. by La Pilita to set out on a two-hour exploration of the cultural and architectural traditions of local Hispanic culture. Your tour guide will regale you with fascinating tales of the colorful cast of characters that shaped the region’s history. Or, take the twilight tour of Armory Park, which meets on Monday, June 7, at 6 p.m. at the Royal Elizabeth Bed and Breakfast and boasts two hours of enlightening education on the Victorian and Californian architectural stylings of 1880s Tucson. On Tuesday, June 1, at 6 p.m., meet at the northwest corner of Main and Alameda for a two-hour stroll admiring the historic mansions of Main Street, complete with anecdotal entertainment on the life and times of early Tucsonians.
