Wife and I are planning a long post Valentine's Day weekend to the Tucson area and beyond (first time) the weekend of 2/15 - 2/18. We'll be driving (just the two of us, but would like to take our little 10 lb. dog with us) from Scottsdale and was hoping to fit in the following:
Friday: A.M. Drive from Scottsdale to Tucson proper (hotel tbd, maybe JW Marriott). Walk around downtown Tucson (?, never been). Dinner and a show perhaps at the Gaslight Theater (if I can get tix).
Saturday: Drive to San Xavier Mission first thing in a.m. Then proceed to Tubac (festival taking place this weekend). Hang out in Tubac thru lunch or so. Then drive to Patagonia / Sonoita area perhaps for some wine tasting. Either find a B&B down there (preferred), or drive back to Tucson later that evening.
Sunday: Drive to Tombstone, do the wild west thing for a bit, and then head to Bisbee. Check out the galleries and funkiness of Bisbee, and either stay there or again drive back to Tucson for the night.
Monday: Drive up to Mt. Lemmon, maybe hike a bit if it makes sense, and head back to Scottsdale.
OK, too much or what? I'll research B&B's in these areas, but in general, does this sound like a nice weekend? We enjoy the driving, and just soaking up the local feel wherever we get out of the car. Would prefer not to do the return trips to Tucson on Sat and Sun, but could use Tucson as home base if it makes sense. Also, finding pet friendly places not always that easy, so any advice on that would be appreciated. Thanks all!
