    I have 1 afternoon & overnight in Tuscon. Staying at airport Doubletree. What suggestions to do that are safe & easy for a single female?

    There isn't much near the airport. For drinks Scott & Co on Scott street is pretty cool for well made and slightly unique cocktails. Opposite there is a hip pizza restaurant with a decent bar also. Cafe Poka Cosa (spelling?) is close to that area, no awesome local restaurant featuring great margaritas and food. Though big food, and really best to experience with friends. They have some fantastic art on the walls from a local famous artist. During the say, Sabino Canyon is awesome for desert scenery, but it's far from where you are staying. It's right on the North East side of town. For funky coffee there is Epic Cafe on 4th ave.. Kinda a hippy coffee shop with good coffee and sometimes live music, and open mic nights. Best coffee is at Raging Sage on Campbell ave, just north of Speedway on the east side of the road.. Sitting right next to a head shop. It has a neat little patio. Hotel Congress downtown on Congress street has a decent restaurant and bar scene, often with live music or DJ's. 4th ave is cool and funky with bars, cheap eats, hippy shops and head shops. Some bars more of a college crowd. More upscale places are north at La Encantada, which is also good for shopping. Tucson really has a lot to offer, with so many places to choose from.

    Looking 4 a trip to plan as #3 on bucket list. 2 wks. Some of my ideas: Costa Rica, Belize, Rio & surrounding areas, Tuscany & Florence.

    I would recommend Tuscany over Central America any day. I grew up in Europe and have travelled a fair amount. I am just wrapping up a 2 1/2 month visit to Costa Rica, and have little positive to say about this country. Note that I have been staying with Costa Rican family in a remote area. It's hot, humid, and while people are friendly, they can never give you a straight answer on anything. It's the most frustrating place. Of course, if you are ONLY going to tourist locations then your trip will be much much better! It does boast beautiful scenery, mountains, and wildlife. My preference is culture, and old Europe. Good luck on your travels. almost 4 years ago

    Also.. You said that you want ease of getting around. In my experience that is NOT Costa Rica. almost 4 years ago
