t’s easy to forget we’re living in the Wild Wild West. People from all over the world travel to Southern Arizona to experience a bit of our renegade spirit. The cactus, the sunsets, the hats, the steampunk man from Mesa that makes homemade sarsaparilla and calls himself Johnny One Dog. All of it!

We all have one of those weekends where we have no idea what we're doing. You're too restless to stay home and those funds to go anywhere are low. (Thanks, holidays.) Lucky for us Tucsonans there's a place nearby where you can roam around in a picturesque countryside and not break the bank. We're talking about a wine weekend.

Real talk! Your big-city best friends are in town and you really want to show off your love of Tucson. Because it's the best place ever. (Duh🌵) They've eaten a Sonoran hot dog, have made the morning trek of Tumamoc Hill for that #FitLife selfie, and soaked up all the funky vibes of 4th Avenue. But now it's time to stretch your tour guide legs and head southwest till you spot "the White Dove of the Desert."

Arizonans know occasionally escaping the desert climate to experience cooler temps and a change of scenery is pretty essential to the cactus way of life. And one place you might find yourself frolicking — to ogle snow in the winter or enjoy 70-degree temps in the summer — is up north to Flagstaff.
