If you’re thinking about planning a trip to Arizona, places like Phoenix and Scottsdale may come to mind first, but as the state’s second largest city, there are many compelling reasons to bump Tucson to the top of your vacation list. A beautiful landscape, great downtown scene, diverse restaurant options, and plenty of fun and exciting things to do have all made the Sonoran Desert a popular getaway destination any time of the year. Whether going for a quick weekend visit or a longer escape, here are just a few suggestions to help you out once you get there.
Where to Stay
Renting a private vacation home promises to take your Tucson trip to a higher level of luxury. You will be able to indulge in all the comforts and conveniences of a property that provides sweeping views of the desert everywhere you turn, as well as a myriad of amenities that you don’t have to share with all the other guests of a crowded hotel. With a spacious floor plan, swimming pool, hot tub, outdoor patio, fireplace, fitness room, and more, a private rental will be much more accommodating for a relaxing getaway than a traditional hotel stay.
Where to Eat
The restaurants you’ll find in Tucson will make it difficult to want to do anything other than eat while you’re there. No matter what you might have the taste for, you’re sure to find it among the eclectic establishments scattered throughout the city. Some of the top places raved about by both locals and visitors include El Charro Café (Tucson’s oldest Mexican restaurant), Amalour Revival Lounge (using the trendy farm-to-table technique), Feast (a gourmet take on Southwestern cuisine), Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails (serving original dishes in a restored building downtown), and Cup Café (boasting a creative menu at the Hotel Congress).
What to Do
Regardless of how you enjoy spending your time, Tucson has a little something for everyone. Stunning golf courses, upscale resorts, interesting museums, monuments rich in history, unique shops, and miles and miles of hiking trails will make it hard to decide just what you’re going to choose to fill your itinerary with during your stay. Don’t miss the Saguaro National Park, Mission San Xavier del Bac, Sabino Canyon, Colossal Cave Mountain Park, or Gaslight Theatre.
