Come to Tucson and you'll quickly see that the city is literally surrounded on all sides by mountains. It's one of the reasons why wanderlust travelers, nature-lovers, and outdoor enthusiasts have flocked here for generations.
Explore the lower elevation desert ranges like the Tucson and Tortolita Mountains, studded with Saguaros and home to unique wildlife the likes of which you've never seen. Or climb high into the ponderosa pine forests of our region's aptly named Sky Island ranges like the Santa Catalinas and Santa Ritas.
No matter which direction you choose you'll find endless opportunities for outdoor recreation and the ability to explore some of the most diverse and beautiful natural surroundings on earth.
