TravFan Goes to Tucson
The Tucson Zoo is a pleasant little place, which is great for smaller children, as it doesn’t take as much walking as a lot of zoos I’ve been to. Stroll past the giraffes and elephants and perhaps you’ll see a wandering peacock with his tail alight and sparkling in the sun. I got to play with the tiger through his glass; he seems to really like the attention or maybe he thought I’d make a good snack. Take a break from the fauna and grab an ice cream or a soda with the crazy animal cups.
Catalina State Park is a beautiful place in the north area of town with trials for both the experienced trekker and the easygoing day-
Vegan and Vegetarian
Places to Eat in Tucson
Casa Molina is located on Campbell Avenue and offers a great selection of Mexican food. Make sure you ask for no cheese clearly or you may get it in your beans. I enjoy the flour tortillas a lot and they have yummy guacamole. When you walk into Casa Molina the whole place is filled with tile and carved wood chairs.
Sauce has good thin crust pizza and their sauce is vegan. I like their wild mushrooms and spinach for toppings. The atmosphere is fun as it is near the university and the wait staff is always pleasant.
Beyond Bread offers a lot of great vegan bread, the multi-grain is my favorite by far. Ask for a plain jane on multi-grain and then add whatever yums you want.
Vivace makes a tasty vegan pasta with pesto if you ask ahead of time. They also do a plate of roasted veggies with olive oil that is really good with warm bread.
