Tucson

Tucson offers an unique experience to its visitors all year round. A warm dry weather and 350 days of sunny days a year make this desert oasis a perfect destination for visitors who want to enjoy outdoor activities, discover the beauty of the Sonoran Desert, learn more about the city's rich history and culture, play golf on the world-class courses, explore art galleries and museums or relax in one of many excellent spas. It is a truly a special place worth visiting.

Tucson is one of the oldest continuously inhabited areas in North America and you will be able to notice the city's rich heritage and history on every step. The days of the Wild West may be long gone but two train depots in downtown Tucson and the Armory Park Historic Residential District just south of downtown will take back to the time of Wyatt Earp who made a stop in Tucson before the famous Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, while the St. Augustine Cathedral, Pima Country Courthouse, Hotel Congress, Fox Theater and some other prominent landmarks in Tucson downtown remained virtually unchanged since the days of John Dillinger, one of the most famous early 20th century outlaws.

Visitors interested in history will also like the Arizona State Museum which amongst other also houses the world's largest collection of Southwest American Indian pottery and the Arizona Historical Society where you can see the Geronimo's rifle and 18th century Spanish silver artifacts. Worth visiting is also Pima Air and Space Museum which is one of the largest of its kind in the world.

Nature lovers can learn more about the local wildlife and the desert in the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum which encompasses live animal exhibits in splendid natural surroundings, a botanical garden and natural history museum. The best way to experience the Sonoran Desert natural beauty and discover the saguaro cactus is to take a leisure drive to the Saguaro National Park or explore the natural wonders along the hiking trails. If you decide for the latter option please keep in mind that the summers can be extremely hot. Always wear a hat and make sure you drink plenty of water.

Tucson is truly a paradise for outdoor adventurers but it is also known as the Astronomy capital of the world and has some of the clearest skies in the country. Make sure you bring your telescope with you or gaze the stars at the Kitt Peak National Observatory which is about 55 miles (88 kilometers) southwest of Tucson.

You can explore the city of Tucson and the Sonoran Desert all year round. No matter in which time of the year you plan to make a trip to Tucson you will be able to visit some major festivals and special events. The best known is the Tucson Gem and Mineral Showcase which is one of the world's premier shows of its kind. Other prominent annual events include La Fiesta de los Vaqueros-Tucson Rodeo, WGC-Accenture Match Play Golf Championship, Festival of Books and various music festivals.
