Families planning their summer vacation to the west coast may want to visit Tucson, Arizona. Here, travelers can visit the fascinating Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum - a 98-acre and zoo that is home to over 300 species.
There are several trails that bring travelers by enclosed areas where bobcats, mountain lions, desert tortoises and many other animals live. One of the most popular events at the museum is the "Raptor Free Flight" demonstration. Both adults and children will be captivated as raptors are flown, allowing audiences to get a close up and unique view of the stunning bird.
Visitors can also go on a hummingbird tour, where they will walk with a zookeeper who will teach them all about these speedy and tiny birds. Guests should bring their camera, as this is a rare chance to get view of the birds.
Travelers who are visiting the facility this summer can expect it to be open seven days a week in March through May from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Additionally, it will be open June through August on Sunday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
