A Discussion on Entertaining Out-of-Towners (Plus Some Best of Tucson Clarifications)

Posted By on Wed, Jun 24, 2015 at 9:00 AM

On Friday, we released the second round* of Best of Tucson® voting. We've already had a ton of ballots submitted and pretty much** all of them (93 percent!) include a vote for "Best Place to Take Friends Visiting Town." 

And the nominees are...

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum


Sabino Canyon 


Mount Lemmon



Gates Pass 



Unscrewed Theater 



Tucson, I'm proud of you. And a little shocked. Even though these finalists were decided just as temperatures started to rise, four of the five finalists in this category involve being outside. 

Have some visitors? Fill up a few water bottles*** and spend the day showing off the Old Pueblo before cooling off with some Unscrewed Theater. Then return to you computer and let us know what really is the Best Place to Take Friends Visiting Town.

*That's right, it's the second round. That's why you can't vote for whomever you want. We tallied up the votes,  compiled a list of finalists and now you're voting for a winner from those contenders. You're sad, we get it, not all of our favorites made the cut, either. It's going to be okay, we'll get through this together. 

**You're only required to fill out a minimum of 30 categories. If you don't have an opinion on a category or can't bring yourself to vote for one of the finalists, leave it blank! 


***And tell your visitors to do the same. They don't understand.
