What to do in Tucson- staying near UofA

My little sister starts UofA in the fall and I'm going to be visiting her in October. In my down time, I'd love to explore the city. What are some must-dos? I love hiking, nature, and good food. Thanks!

    Go to 4th Street, tons of bars and restaurants, it will keep you busy all night! You must start out at Che's Lounge with $1 beers.....and go from there!

    Hop on the Modern Street car and explore the city. Head downtown to many great restaurants,clubs and shops along fourth avenue. Continuing west visit the Mercado San Agustin, featuring great shops offering local products such as La Estrella Bakery, and Chef Ryan Clark's Augustin Kitchen where he focuses on a special brand of Local New American Cuisine, focusing on ingredients"made and grown in Southern Arizona" including beef, produce, olive oils, breads and flour, cheese, wines, artisan brews, spirits and more.

    There are tons of great restaurants (old and new) downtown, which is very close to campus. Proper Tucson, Pizzeria Bianco, Saint House Island Bistro & Rum Bar just to name a few. October is great for hiking Sabino Canyon, Mount Lemmon or just exploring the desert. If you're looking for nightlife, it's mostly concentrated downtown, too. Very much a college town, so I'm sure there will no shortage of activities, especially during football season. If you like nature, good places to stay are JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa, The Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa or Lodge At Ventana Canyon. The former two are closer to campus.

    Going to Mt Lemmon is a fun day trip 30 miles up the mountain. Eegee's is a local restaurant chain with a great slushy-like drink and they have flavors of the months too. I also like Macayo's Mexican Restaurant there are a few around town as well. But there are very few mexican restaurants you could go wrong with.

    Late October is best for weather reasons. See Sabino Canyon for structured outdoor hiking and fun. See my list of local hikes http://www.localhikes.com/ and http://hikearizona.com/ for trails (Tucson has hundreds of options). Hit Summit Hut for gear. and I always recommend eating at Feast

    As far as food, Cafe Poca Cosa is a slightly pricey but amazing showcase of southwestern food. Sabino Canyonis a great place for hiking and taking in the desert scenery. The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museumis a ways out of town, but a great place to see examples of wildlife from the region.Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum
