Event Navigation

The Turquoise Trail is a 2.5-mile walking tour of downtown Tucson that follows a turquoise line and leads walkers past many architectural and artistic gems important to Tucson’s history.

The tour begins at 10 am at the Presidio Museum at 196 N. Court Ave, and will pass by many important features of downtown, like the Jácome art panel at the Tucson Convention Center, El Tiradito/The Wishing Shrine, the Barrio Viejo neighborhood, the Blenman House (aka Royal Elizabeth Bed & Breakfast) and the former Carnegie Library, which houses the Tucson Children’s Museum. The tour ends at the Hotel Congress around 12:30 pm, and those wishing to have lunch at a downtown restaurant afterwards are welcome to do so at their own cost. The walking tour fee of $10 for Presidio Museum Members and $15 for non-members does not include lunch, but it does include all-day admission to the Presidio Museum.

Participants must be able to walk the 2.5-mile distance in approximately 2.5 hours. They are encouraged to wear comfortable walking shoes and sunscreen and bring water and snacks. The tour is not recommended for young children. Registration is available at www.TucsonPresidio.com, for tour dates through the end of the year.
