    History Meets Modern Luxury
    When the pandemic shut down virtually the entire U.S., Armory Park Inn owner Amy Draper knew she had an advantage: a place steeped in history, yet thoroughly modern. 
    Located in the heart of Tucson’s vibrant and historic downtown district, the Armory Park Inn was once a stagecoach stop near Tucson’s armory, back when the area was not much more than a walled military settlement. 
    Built in 1875, the inn is among the oldest structures in the area. With 22-inch-thick adobe walls and 18-foot-high ceilings adorned with saguaro ribs, the inn features a traditional zaguan layout, with a center hall that runs from the front door to the back of the building. The design is both beautiful and practical, providing a means of air circulation in the years before electricity and air conditioning.

    Phoenix leads nation with biggest net inflow in 2020

    The inventory crunch in popular destinations could intensify over the next few years as remote workers continue to relocate and buy homes. If developers, zoning boards and local governments prioritize building homes in the affordable areas people are moving into as opposed to coastal cities, that would help combat the housing shortage.

    Article originally posted on thisistucson.com on January 28th, 2021
    Timeless Play, a new center opening in mid-March, is the latest offering from Tucson nanny agency Trusting Connections. The agency has primarily focused on in-home, business, and event care services since its launch in 2011, but having a drop-off care center is an idea that's been in the works for some time. Timeless Play will offer drop-in care for up to four hours.
    The center located at 4425 N. Campbell Ave. is geared toward children ages 1 to 12 and reservations can be made for up to four hours of care. The center's staff to kid ratio will be kept small at 1:4, with a maximum of 16 kids per hour allowing nannies to constantly interact with the kids rather than passively observing, Prather says. 
    Prather says Timeless Play will follow the most current COVID-19 safety and cleaning protocols including face mask guidance, frequent cleaning, and hand washing. Kids will also be required to remo ...
