Overview

A comprehensive guide to Tucson and surrounding areas with hundreds of lodging, dining, and recreational recommendations.
Explore the friendly, laid-back, border city of Tucson with this comprehensive addition to the Great Destinations series. This place of red deserts, awe-inspiring mountains, and cactus forests is also replete with history: Tucson was originally settled by ancient Native American peoples, Spanish explorers, and Anglo frontiersmen, and their legacy is clearly evident.
While the Tucson area holds special appeal for naturalists, hikers, and birdwatchers, there are countless outdoor recreation options available—everything from ballooning to trail riding on horseback—and myriad indoor options like museums and galleries, music and dance performances, too. Tucson’s world-class resorts and spas, along with its top-rated golf courses, make it one of the best relaxation destinations in the country. And there’s no better Sonoran food north of the Mexican border than here in the Old Pueblo. Tucson offers something for everyone.
Detailed maps and the author’s selective recommendations make this book a must-have for travelers and residents alike.
