Here is a list of what to see on your winter vacation, compliments of

    Green Valley is on the list for its different recreation centers and golf courses.

    Sun City and Sun City West made it for their great affordable food joints.

    Fountain Hills is here because of its art fairs and beautiful views. Then there’s Gilbert boasting its new and growing restaurant row.

    Tucson and its lovely mountain landscapes made the list, alongside Showlow, for its cabins.

    I tried the app. Don’t waste your time. Its just news stories from the local channel 5. If there are any activities for snowbirds, it is only because they were covered by the news. Nothing special, don’t waste your app space either.
