Sahuarita, Arizona is, by far, one of the fascinating places that you will ever visit, especially if you're a history buff. This small town's history predates the American Revolution. Various Native American tribes thrived in this part of the dessert for thousands of years before the Spanish laid claim to the area in the 18th century. It wasn't long before it changed hands again, coming under Mexican control after the country declared its independence. In the mid-19th century, Sahuarita was sold to the United States as part of the Gadsen Purchase.
During the Cold War, there was a missile stored here. In fact, it's on display, open to the public at the Titan Missile Museum. This nuclear warhead was prepared for war, and is even stored in its own carrier. Star Trek: First Contact, which was filmed here, even featured the missile as a prototype. You can bring your dog with you to see it and explore the surrounding area.
There is so much for you and your dog to see at the museum, especially if you schedule the guided tour that takes you eight stories below ground to see the missile control room! The entire tour takes several hours to complete, so plan accordingly. Not all guided tours allow dogs, so please call ahead if you plan to tour inside.
If you want something more natural to do with your dog, then you should take a walk through Anza Park Trail. This is a trail system that goes between the schools. You can play on the playground, check out a game at the ball field, or just enjoy being outside.
Sahuarita is the pawfect place to live or visit, whether you're looking to learn a little history with your dog or just enjoy some fun in the sun.
