People say Tucson slows down in the summer, but that's only true if you're judging by "the number of people" metric. Sure, there are fewer people on our streets and, perhaps, not quite as many events to attend. But Tucson comes alive for those who stick around during the summer months. There's plenty to do, and when you do them the lines are shorter, the crowds are friendlier and you can stay out all night without a sweater.
You might have seen our Summer Survival guide a couple weeks back, which should have you running around town until the students are back, clogging up the line for Sunday breakfast at Bobo's.
You've made it through the busiest time months in Tucson, so it's time to get busy yourself. Enjoy it. Then, when you collapse on the sofa after a long day of running through the city, dig into a growler and a few movies from the Old Pueblo's favorite video store/bar combo.
