Reviews, photos and videos for program: The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show
Patricia from New Westminster, BC Number of programs attended: 26
Date attended: 02/05/12 - 02/10/12
This is the second time I have attended a program in Tucson and found it very enjoyable. The Radisson is the quietest hotel I have ever stayed in and I was pleased to find that there were owls in the surrounding trees although we were within the City. There was a bus stop outside the hotel which went to the downtown core. Also an enormous bookstore was across the street. Meals were fine, both in hotel and at other restaurants. I usually arrive a day early for programs as I like to visit art galleries and Tucson has many fine ones. The group also visited the Tucson Art Museum. Visit to the White Stallion Ranch was great although would have liked to stay longer. I chose to fly into Phoenix and take the Arizona Shuttle to Tucson. The hotel shuttle picked me up at their terminal. Linda Rushton was a great coordinator! She is well organized and has a good sense of humour. The speakers were very interesting and covered a variety of topics, mostly pertaining to gems and minerals. Highlight of the trip for some of us was a visit to Nogales to hear the wonderful Apache Mariachi high school band.
