[D] Walking Tour of University of Arizona Campus

The University of Arizona walking tour will begin at "Main Gate". During our walk we will enjoy the history and architecture of the original buildings with special attention to Old Main, the 2nd oldest public building in the State of Arizona. Walking through campus we will visit the arboretum gardens with over 8,000 trees and shrubs. The Joseph Woof Krutch Gardens reflect the original desert landscape where this University is built. These gardens are a 120 year testimony to native plant survival. We will also see stunning trees from around the world that have adapted with water conservation to campus life. Along the way we will visit the University's famous sports and educational facilities. We will then stop in to visit the new Center of Photography and enjoy a quick look at these inspirational works of art. Motivated by hunger and a desire to mix with the students and feel their energy, we will then walk over to Gentle Ben's at 865 University Boulevard, a local favorite restaurant and brewery for lunch. Walking distance is 4.0 miles and flat. RTD 50 miles.
