Summer is a season of sunshine, free time, and loads of possibilities for fun activities. But what happens when you’ve exhausted all the usual go-to’s for summer fun? You’ve already been to the beach, the pool, the water park. You’re all camped out and there are no more evening concerts. So what now? Mom…I’m bored! Well, we’ve got you covered. Read on for a few ideas on how to up your game when it comes to summer fun.
Craft a Fun Vacation with Friends
Do you have friends in the same boat of boredom? Looking for a new, creative and one-of-a-kind girl’s getaway experience? How about signing up for our “Create Your Own Handbag” package and learn to make a leather wrist bag, using traditional Western techniques, designed and taught by Cypriot artist, handbag designer and our own General Manager extraordinaire, Dora Schabel. You’ll spend quality time with friends and leave with a beautiful piece that you will be proud to showcase. In addition to the four-hour session of instruction, you will receive all the materials you will need, including leathers, handles, wax thread, and lacing leather for your design, an API monogrammed apron, a delicious lunch brought in from Tucson’s own Time Market and finally, a surprise gift as a finishing touch to your bag!
Cook Up Memories to Savor
Arts and crafts aren’t your bag? What about our “Art of Heritage Cooking” class? Did you know that in 2015, UNESCO designated Tucson as the first City of Gastronomy in the U.S. because of “the region’s rich agricultural heritage, thriving food traditions, and culinary distinctiveness”. Join Carolyn Niethammer, cookbook author/writer/chef, in the beautiful Armory Park Inn kitchen for a hands-on experience creating a meal and signature cocktail made with ingredients native to the Desert Southwest. In addition to the cooking lesson, you will go home with one of Carolyn’s signed cookbooks, a monogrammed API apron, and a killer gift basket!
Get a True Taste of Tucson
Not quite sure what exactly you are after but want a truly authentic Tucson experience but don’t know where to start? Let us curate the perfect itinerary so that you enjoy the best The Old Pueblo has to offer. Our owner, Amy Draper, an 8th generation Tucsonan, will visit with you prior to your stay to find out what your areas of interest are and will come up with the perfect way to spend your time in Tucson. Upon arrival, you will be presented with your choice of a bottle Arizona wine or a six-pack of locally crafted beer, admission to a museum or attraction chosen just for you, a gift certificate to a restaurant that will fit you to a “T” and finally, a very generous gift basket featuring products from some of Tucson’s most beloved purveyors such as a box of chocolates from our neighborhood Monsoon Chocolate, a bottle of Cherie’s Prickly Pear Syrup, perfect when you want to up your margarita game; a bottle of salsa from Boca Tacos, and more. And since there will be so much you will want to do and see that you will want to take advantage of our “Stay Two Days and Get the Third Half Off” special.
