The city of Tucson is the second-largest in the American state of Arizona. Its high elevation gives it a cooler climate despite being situated in the biologically diverse Sonoran Desert. The city boasts an incredibly long history dating back to the Hohokam culture. Arrival is made convenient thanks to the Tucson International Airport.
Tucson is an excellent land to explore. Amazing features like the Sabino Canyon
turn simple hikes into enchanting adventures. From Saguaro National Park
and its dense forest of cactus to Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and its mix of zoo, natural history museum, and botanical garden, the opportunities to explore the land are diverse and fulfilling. Historic sites such as San Xavier del Bac Mission hail back to the time when Arizona was still part of New Spain, and other sites like the Titan Missile Museum
and Old Pascua Museum and Yaqui Cultural Center provide insight to other historic pieces of the area. When looking for the nightlife, head to 4th Avenue for its many bars and nightclubs.
