Discover the bustling desert-city of Tucson
The second largest city in Arizona, Tucson occupies a unique location in the heart of the Sonoran Desert. Surrounded by five mountain ranges, lush desert landscapes and two districts of the Saguaro National Park, it is ideal for outdoor activities as it enjoys over 340 sunny days a year.
Embark on an outdoor adventure, hiking, cycling or playing a game of golf on one of the best courses in the region. The many hiking trails are perfect for spotting rare wildlife such as the mountain lion, rattlesnake and Gila monster. Marvel at rushing waterfalls on the Seven Falls Trail in the Sabino Canyon or venture into the mighty mountains on the Sutherland Trail at Catalina State Park.
Admire the picturesque architecture in the city of Tucson, inspired by its desert surroundings. Enjoy leafy gardens and a range of local activities including panning for gold and Mexican-inspired cooking. Learn about innovative technology at the Pima Air & Space Museum and discover stunning architecture at the San Xavier del Bac Spanish Catholic mission, one of the oldest European buildings in the area. Round off exciting days in one of Tucson's fine-dining restaurants – as the first UNESCO City of Gastronomy in the USA, it’s an experience not to be missed.
