How to enjoy Tucson

It may be explained by a simple equation of natural atmospherics, but that can’t take away the magic of the Tucson sky which really is higher, wider, bluer and more breathtaking than any other sky

  • Cool off at the peak of Mt Lemmon. The southernmost ski destination in the US offers cool summer breezes and spectacular views year round
  • The artistry of Ansel Adams, Richard Avedon and Edward Weston are on view at the renowned Center for Creative Photography
  • Try your luck at one of the local resort casinos. There is plenty of gaming choice from Poker to Blackjack, Bingo and Slots

There are about a million residents according to official census reports, but it is hard to get that sense when you visit Tucson. This city has a small town feel. Perhaps this is in part down to the sky. It really is immense, dwarfing everything else in sight. Or maybe it is the mountains. Five stunning ranges almost encircle the city and make the highest building seem diminutive in comparison.

With the Mexican border under an hour’s drive away, Tucson boasts some of the best Mexican restaurants anywhere this side of the frontier and a perfect excuse for going large on the green sauce. Must haves include the Sonoran Dog, Carne Asada, local invention the Chimichanga, and local beer, Nimbus Dirty Guera.
