Best Of Tucson®

Best Workday Picnic Location

Armory Park

You can use this Best of Tucson® issue to learn about the best eateries to visit on your lunch hour—but with weather like ours, why eat inside? It's better to pack your lunch and go to the park—and it's best, if you happen to be one of the thousands of people who work downtown, to go to Armory Park. No, this park doesn't have a fish pond or a petting zoo or even a playground, but what do you need those for, when all you're doing is having a picnic? All you need is some soft green grass, some shade, some benches and a drinking fountain. (Check the Armory Park Center.) You can't beat the location.
