  • At 8 months there isn't really anything you can do with the baby! Sorry to say-I had the same problem. :-(

  • Tucson is beautiful and you can pretty much count on the weather being 60-70 and sunny. There are outdoor and indoor things to do. There is a nice zoo. Prices aren't high.

  • I think a beach trip would be your best bet - an 8 month old isn't really going to be able to DO much anyway, so while you sit and play at least you can be on the beach!

  • I took my son when he was 4months to Florida...we went to Sea World with him, the beach....everywhere. He didn't really even mind the 9 hour car trip.

  • I have been to catalina and I think it is perfect you can take her with on all kinds of things, just walking around and taking in the sites there is a blast. Also you could always go to the sandiego zoo of bush gardens I am guessing you are in so. cal? I wouldn't go to Tucson if I were anybody that place is boring and ugly I lived in AZ my whole life and tucson sucks. If I were to go anywhere in AZ i would say the zoos in phoenix they are huge, or the grand canyon lots to do there and outside of it about 50 miles is a place that is flintstone's themed it is pretty neat.
