This past weekend we packed up the car and headed south to Tucson for a 24 hour family getaway at the Westin La Paloma Resort. If you’re looking for an easy road trip with a family friendly swimming pool, incredible views, and great bargain at the finish line you’ve found your answer at the Westin. When we arrived we went straight to the pool, per my 3 year old’s request, or should I say demand. The pool features gorgeous views of the Catalina mountains, a swim up bar, and raging water slide that gives any water park a run for their money. There is plenty of shade (a must in the AZ heat!), a fun pool side cocktail menu, and lively swim up bar.
When it was time to check in to our room, the accommodation couldn’t have been more spacious and the scenery was magnificent overlooking some of Tucson’s finest golf courses and desert landscape. The Westin is known for their trademarked Heavenly Bed, and of course that did not disappoint. If you’ve ever stayed at a Westin, you know what I’m talking about. The location of the resort is perfect for heading to the La Encantada outdoor mall for shopping, dinner, and a visit to Frost gelato and the drive from the Phoenix area to the resort is less than 2 hours.
