The Desert Museums newest mountain lion, Cruz keeps partially hidden from view right after sunset during Cool Summer Nights at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum Saturday, August 10th, 2013.

It's nice to take visiting family and friends to some of our local attractions. It's nicer to save money while doing it.

The Tucson Attractions Passport gives you discounts at more than 50 southern Arizona attractions, such as Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Biosphere 2, Pima Air & Space Museum, Old Tucson Studios and more. 

The book is $18, and gives discounts such as two-for-one admission deals, or half off for individual admission and other discounts. It's got up to $400 of savings.

Get the Tucson Attractions Passport here. Or pick one up at La Encantada, Foothills Mall or the Tucson Visitor Center in La Placita Village, 110 S. Church Ave., Suite 7199. You can also pick them up later this month in many area attractions, parks, museums and hotels. In October, you'll be able to download it to your smartphone here.

Group and bulk discounts are available. Call 404-0049 or email
