Arizona Weekend Explorer - Tucson Special




Cactus, Stalactites, and Aspen, Oh My

The beauty of the desert is what first pulls many to Tucson, but they're often surprised at how verdant and diverse a desert can be as they learn about our unique ecosystems at Tohono Chul, Tucson Botanical Gardens, and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.

Off the beaten path, you can explore the wide-open wonder of the Southwest up-close and unrestrained, hiking the mountain ranges that circle the Old Pueblo or wandering wilderness preserves and parks, from the cascades of Seven Falls at Sabino Canyon to the majestic cacti of Saguaro National Parks East & West, or from the high-pine and aspen forests of Mt. Lemmon to the cool, otherworldly depths of Colossal Cave or Kartchner Caverns.


History, Space, Art & More

That amazing range of natural beauty is the backdrop to a place that refuses to be defined by expectations. Probe the cosmos at Kitt Peak National Observatory and the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory. Feed your spirit in the city's museums and galleries, or travel through time discovering Tucson's unique cultural legacy, from the masterful 1700s art and architecture of Mission San Xavier del Bac to 300 vintage-to-modern aircraft illuminating a century of military and aerospace history at the Pima Air & Space Museum.


Shopping by Cable Car

Starting this summer, you can also hop the new Sun Link Streetcar and cable your way through the heart of Tucson, down Fourth Avenue and across Downtown Tucson, where shops and restaurants are sometimes funky, sometimes crunchy, often elegant and always memorable. The route runs four miles between the collegiate buzz of Main Gate Square to the Old World-inspired Mercado San Agustin.
