Saguaro National Park
On our way back east on our cross-country road trip, we found ourselves in Tucson, Arizona. Being east coast natives, seeing saguaro cactuses is something awesome for us - so, of course we were going to go to a park that is named after the large iconic cactuses.
The entrance fee is $10USD per non-commercial car. Once you pay the fee, you can enter either district of the park for 7 days.
1. Go in the late afternoon. Not only was the weather beautiful, but the park was empty! I think we passed one car our entire time at the park.
2. One thing I did notice is that the roads were beautifully paved. So, if you're going to Saguaro East (I can't vouch for West) we suggest you bring your bike and spend the day biking through the park!
3. Bring lots of water.
