Every corner of Arizona brings a unique blend of experiences, landscapes, attractions and distractions to travellers.
Tucson and the remaining Southern region of Arizona covers an area that goes as far south as you can get before hitting Mexico. It’s also the best place to find the state’s famous waving saguaro cactus.
• Tucson is the first UNESCO City of Gastronomy.
• It's home to the Saguaro National Park, Mission San Xavier del Bac, Biosphere II, and Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.
• It's located just 60 miles from Mexico.
• Internationally, Tucson is known for its Guest Ranches, including White Stallion and Tanque Verde Ranch.
Home of the historic Copper Queen Mine, Bisbee, Arizona – located 90 miles southeast of Tucson – will send visitors back to a time when the Old West reigned supreme. As will Tombstone, “the town too tough to die” and the site of the famous OK Corral shootout. Today, you can walk the dirt streets and watch live reenactments of real historical events before popping into a saloon for a little refreshment.
Visitors can also discover:
• Two of Arizona’s wine-growing regions in Willcox and Sonoita
• The town of Oracle, a Dark Sky-certified town and home to Biosphere 2
• The artist enclave of Tubac
• Chiricahua National Monuments indescribable “hoodoo” rock formations
• Kartchner Caverns
Cheekily referred to as Arizona’s “West Coast” by the locals, western Arizona is a place where the cool, blue Colorado River and the placid waters of many lakes and reservoirs combine to create the perfect climate for fun in the sun.
As you trace the mighty Colorado’s path from the Hoover Dam to Mexico, you’ll fall in love with vibrant communities filled with fascinating museums and attractions, natural wonders and wildlife habitats.
Along the way, you’ll encounter many spots highlighting the area’s proximity to Route 66, an infamous highway with an…interesting history.
