The many Victorian homes built along the wide streets in the Armory Park Neighborhood are a must see for any one interested in territorial architecture. The neighborhood just north east of downtown Tucson derives its name from a former Army post abandoned before the turn of the century. Easily walkable, there are many examples of Victorian-era homes that became popular once the railroad was built and building materials from the east became available. Armory Park has been on the Registrar of National Historic Places since the 1950's when it was saved from demolition to make way for a freeway. The area features the old Carnagie Library, the Masonic Temple, the Temple of Music and Art and over four hundred homes built soon after the turn of the century. -Ted Parks

The Pines offers a mix of dramatic elevation changes and stunning mountain views with 18 enjoyable holes. In 1997 the Pines opened as The Links at Continental Ranch. The Links, designed by Brian Huntley, was built on the edge of 90+ acres of 100-foot deep sand and gravel quarry. In 2000, following the decision to abandon the sand and gravel quarry, the Town of Marana and the quarry/golf course owner agreed on a plan that would reclaim the quarry by relocating 10 golf holes into the old quarry and reconfigure 8 of the existing holes. Given the elevation changes and the addition of thousands of trees, it was determined that the Links name was no longer appropriate. And so, when the new course opened for play in October 2003, The Pines Golf Club at Marana was born. Tucson's first Scottish Links-style course was transformed into "Tucson's first quarry course".
