Tuson and quartzsite in mid april

We plan to be in the Tuson and Quartzsite, Arizona area in about mid April. What are some of the must sees and concerns for both areas. Specifically, what can we expect as far as crowds, weather and services available and what are some of the things we should see and experience.

We live in South Florida and it is about this time that our population drops in half and the weather warms.

Quartzsite's population will probably have dropped by 90% in April. January/February are the big months there. You won't find much activity. You might want to drive south to Yuma or north to Havasu City instead.

April will be a gorgeous month in Tucson - lots of flowers and nice weather. Check out the Desert Museum (really an outdoor desert zoo). A drive up Mount Lemmon is a must as is Saguaro Nat'l Park - east and west. Hiking trails of all abilities.Not knowing your interests, just Google for things to do. There's lots. Have fun.

Tucson has everything from Pima Air Museum to the Ostrich farm, I'm sure you can find a lot in the middle to please you.

I concur with choosing Lake Havasu or Yuma rather than

Quartzite will be HOT in mid April. It will also be a ghost town. I was there a couple of weeks ago and it was closing up already.

I was in Tuscon for a couple of months and was not all that impressed. The things already mentioned were highlights, along with the missile silo tour in Green Valley. I found the town itself difficult to get around and not very clean.

I'm in Yuma now. Its starting to get hot but still nice. It has a small town feel but most everything one would need.

Let me know if you have more specific questions.
