Tucson, Western Way RV Resort

Western Way RV Resort, Tucson

We’ve just arrived in Tucson where we’ll  spend 4 nights at Western Way RV Resort in SW Tucson.  Western Way is a very mature RV park of about 300 sites, with 90% or so of these converted to park model sites.  Our site #127 is sandwiched between two park models, but these larger sites don’t seem too tight.  We have plenty of room for the RV, a nice cement patio pad and room for the truck beside that.  Most of the park models include the “tiny-home”, an Arizona room and carport parking area completely covering the entire lot.  Located about 20 minutes from downtown Tucson, this RV park turned out to be very quiet, very well run and full of friendly folks.

Spending 4 nights will even gave an opportunity to use the $1.00 washers and dryers in the spotlessly clean laundry room – a real bargain! The outdoor pool and BBQ area is very nice as is the clubhouse that seemed to stay very busy with pancake breakfast, coffee club, concerts and movie nights.  We also happened to be there just in time for the Friday morning parade of decorated golf carts.

After being here in Tucson last year, we had two items our to-do list.  The first was to check out Kitt Peak National Observatory which is located about 45 minutes SW of the RV park.  The other item is to see the Pima Air and Space Museum, home of one of the best collections of civil and military aircraft outside of the Smithsonian.  This museum is also the only way to access the “boneyard”, acres and acres of retired aircraft on the Davis-Monthan Air Force base.  Unfortunately the boneyard tours sell out fast, generally by 9AM each morning – so that’s still an item for the next trip.  However, we had a great time exploring the 8 hangers of aircraft plus the shuttle ride around the outside exhibits, seeing everything from old Air Force One’s that transported the Kennedys and Johnsons to a current day Boing 787, a test unit with serial number 2.
