Things to Do in Tucson

Do What You Love, Then Love Even More

Skip the Southwest stereotypes and experience the real deal in Tucson, AZ, where the Lawrence Whipple Observatory brings the planets as close as the wings of raptors whizzing past your head at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.

From the robust colors of centuries-old frescoes at Mission San Xavier del Bac to the shining steel of a 1959 Boeing Superfortress at the Pima Air & Space Museum or the heady scent of la reina de la noche, the night-blooming Queen of the Desert at Tohono Chul Park, discover a place with as many things to do as your heart and mind can imagine.
