If you're in search of an activity the whole family will enjoy (and one that allows you to escape the heat for a few hours), attend a performance at the Gaslight Theatre. Offering everything from musical comedies and melodramas to Westerns and sci-fi spoofs, the theater receives praise from visitors for its reasonable prices and fun, family-friendly atmosphere. Plus, the theater serves beer and wine, soft drinks, pizza and free popcorn, among other kid-friendly eats.

You'll find the theater about 5 miles east of downtown Tucson. From Monday through Thursday, shows and concerts start at 7 p.m.; on Friday, shows begin at 6 and 8:30 p.m. There are three shows presented on Saturday and Sunday. Reviewers said shows sell out fast, so plan to purchase your tickets in advance. Tickets cost $21.95 for adults, $19.95 for seniors, students and military members, and $11.95 for children 12 and younger. Keep in mind these prices do not include tax. Check the theater's website for more information on schedules and performances showing at the theater.

#1 Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

Although it's called a museum, this facility – about 15 miles west of downtown Tucson – is more of a zoo. In fact, 85 percent of what you'll experience is outdoors (so dress accordingly). The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum's 98 acres host 230 animal species  including prairie dogs, coyotes and a mountain lion  and 1,200 local plant species (totaling 56,000 individual plants). Walking through the museum's trails, visitors get acquainted with desert life. And if you feel hungry after your leisurely hike, you can enjoy a meal at one of the museum's four eateries, all of which have great views of the surrounding desert.
