Catalina State Park

Catalina State Park, Tucson, Arizona, and Mod Pizza

We stopped off at Arizona’s Catalina State Park after visiting the Camping World in Tucson and then headed to Mod Pizza on Oro Valley.

The World Famous Fountain Hills Fountain

Blasting 300 feet into the air, this world-famous Fountain is quite the spectacular view to see. At full bore, it has the potential to reach 560 feet (170 m) into the air. This gave it the title of being the world’s tallest fountain, until fountains where built in St. Louis and then Dubai passed it […]
