Unimpressed with Tubac Presidio State Park
Tubac was a garrison town, and was inhabited for about 100 years before being abandoned in the 1800's. It is now an Arizona State Park and small artist town south of Tucson. We stopped by as part of our tour of Spanish Missions in the Tucson area.
After visiting Tumacacori and San Xavier del Bac, I really wasn't that impressed with Tubac. There are a few ruined buildings and a decent museum, but it's not that great of a place to go explore. If you're going to visit Tubac Historic Park, do it when there's a festival or other activity going on in order to get a greater feel for the history.
