The Gardens Are Calling

Tohono Chul Gardens, Gallery & Bistro

(Updated March 1, 2017)
Susan and I always look forward to escaping the Seattle rain for our time in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. While our trips are usually heavy on "to-dos" at 'the Casa', we do try to get out to visit one or two of our favorite local attractions at the same time.

One of the best (and always under-publicized) desert activities is a morning or afternoon at Tohono Chul Gardens . It is a beautiful spot to unwind and wander through amazing collections of native Sonoran cactus/plants and exhibit gardens. We always include a stop at their great little bistro for brunch or lunch. 'Tres Tacos' is highly recommended! (But you might want to share - it's big!)

Beyond the sheer beauty of the gardens themselves, every season brings a new collection of great events tailored to lovers of everything from arts & crafts, to music, to yoga and even T'ai Chi.  Hopefully, based on your reservation dates, you will be able to visit the gardens and catch one of their fine seasonal events.

Check out the upcoming activities at the Tohono Chul events page . Enjoy!!!
