In addition to what I mentioned, there are Karchner Caverns and Tombstone.

Tombstone is hopelessly touristy, but you can visit Boot Hill with the real graves and the real tombstones (like "Here lies Lester Moore, 5 shots from a .44; no Les no More". Plus the Clanton gang graves. The corral itself is pay-to-enter. The "saloon" still has bullet holes in the ceiling (not from the gunfight, just from general rowdiness). They also have the world's largest rose bush, last I knew. Tombstone is worth a visit, despite the tourist trap element.

Consult YELP for recommendations of places to eat. I'm out of touch with the scene down there now. If you want some really good Mexican food, you can find it there. You'll never eat Taco Bell again. There are also other cuisines. I used to know a really good pho place, for example.

Saguaro Nat Monument is in two pieces. I think the eastern one is a bit better, but if you have time you can visit both.

If you want to do some skiing, there is Mt Lemmon.

The Sonoran Desert Museum is west of the city, and is really good if you are interested in desert flora and fauna.

Biosphere 2 is north of the city. It's an interesting tour. We did it several years ago.
