Welcome to Tuscon
Tuscon features a desert climate and is surrounded by several mountain ranges. It is the second largest city in Arizona and located only 60 miles north of the United States-Mexico border. Because the University of Arizona is located in Tuscon, many people visit the city as prospective students or come to see loved ones who are attending the educational institutions.
You certainly won't be bored in Tuscon. During your stay, consider checking out San Xavier del Bac. Built in 1797, it's a mission church featuring intricate architecture and lovely artwork. Alternatively get your fill of flight and spend time at the Pima Air and Space Museum. Marvel at hundreds of airplanes while you're there.
Ready to experience some of nature's splendor? Look no further than Saguaro National Park. It's home to the world's largest cacti. After taking pictures of those gorgeous plants, consider using the facility's picnic tables to enjoy a packed lunch.
Tuscon offers an appealing selection of accommodation choices. You might choose one that gives you a free hot breakfast each morning of your stay or pick a hotel with a swimming pool you can use to cool off in hot weather. Some hotels are even pet-friendly, so you can bring a furry family member along on a trip.
Getting to Tuscon by car is simple. Just take Interstate 10 or 19. Arriving by train? There's an Amtrak Station on North Toole Street. It has an enclosed waiting area. If arriving by plane, you'll fly into Tuscon International Airport, which is 10 miles from the center of the city.
