Explore Beyond Tucson
Plan an easy day trip or weekend getaway with help from a Southern Arizona visitor center or chamber of commerce.
Tucson makes an excellent gateway to the fascinating small towns, growing cities, attractions and beautiful natural sites in Southern Arizona. Then there is the University of Arizona in midtown Tucson, which has so many varied things to see and do it is much like a small city in itself. But just beyond Tucson, the Southern Arizona area is still relatively undiscovered, a region that offers easy-paced, family-friendly activities perfect for weekend getaways and extended adventures. Most of these communities were settled by pioneering ranchers, miners, missionaries, and soldiers whose steps you can trace today at museums, galleries, attractions and natural sites.
Plan a day trip or weekend getaway with resources from any of these local visitor centers or chambers of commerce that specializes in information about their area.
