Traveling From Tucson: Fun Road Trips to Take With the Family
It might sound obvious but, driving is one of our favorite pastimes. We love the whir of an engine. We get an adrenaline rush when we feel the car speed up to take to the highway lurching us toward a new destination. Road trips are fun.
And we know we’re not the only ones who feel this way.
Many of you bring your cars into our auto shop in Rita Ranch with stories to tell from vacations you’ve recently returned from. You have memories packed in the bucket seats of your cars and hearing those memories is one of the best parts about our job.
That’s why, this year we decided to put together a series of some of our favorite road trips from around the area. We covered drives as close as a half hour away to some that are 12+ hours away and everything in between. The goal? Help you find new places to make memories with your family and friends.
As 2016 comes to a close, we’re closing out this series. To recap, here are the places we’ve explored this year. Click the links to learn more:
- January: Sonoita – Arizona’s Wine Country
- February: Catalina Island
- March: Disneyland
- April: Sedona, Arizona
- May: Ruidoso, New Mexico
- June: Bisbee, Arizona
- July: Silver City, New Mexico
- August: Las Vegas, Nevada

We know that this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to places you can explore after only a few hours on the road. We’d love to hear from you!
