TUCSON inspires a sense of freedom among all who visit.
The natural landscape and 350 days of annual sunshine beckon and there is plenty of room to roam. Hike, bicycle, or ride horseback on trails through giant cacti at Saguaro National Park. Explore Native American, Spanish and Mexican cultural influences. Tour Tucson's most magnificent landmark, Mission San Xavier del Bac, a National Historic Landmark and the finest example of Baroque mission architecture in the U.S. Climb Tumamoc Hill, another National Historic Landmark, home to the ruins of a 2,500-year-old native village. Saddle up for a western trail ride at an authentic guest ranch. Discover Old Tucson, a movie set where legendary Hollywood Westerns were filmed. Come in February for La Fiesta de los Vaqueros (Tucson Rodeo) and a front-row seat to modern-day cowboy culture. Take a day trip to the town of Tombstone for historical re-enactments of its famed "Gunfight at the O.K. Corral." Free Yourself and venture off the beaten path in Tucson.
