Outdoor Activities in Tucson

The Best Way to Warm-Up is by Getting Outside

Lots of places talk about their "Great Outdoors" but here in Tucson we don't just talk the talk, we walk the walk - or take the hike, depending on how you look at it. That's right, we aren't too shy to say that our outdoors are a little bit greater than most places you might visit. Whether you're looking for a hardcore backcountry adventure or just a leisurely stroll in the solitude of the Sonoran Desert, Tucson offers plenty of room to roam.

From the otherworldly beauty of Saguaro National Park to the rugged expanse of the Coronado National Forest and the region's Sky Island mountain ranges, in southern Arizona, getting outside is not just a hobby, it's a way of life.

So if you're ready to warm up your winter with a little infusion of nature, you don't have to sacrifice all of the usual creature comforts (unless you really want to). Tucson is a city that has adventure in its DNA and there's no better way to experience it than getting outside.
