Things to Do in Tucson

A bit off the beaten path, Tucson’s unique attractions and accommodations beckon you to discover and explore a place that’s authentic and comfortable.

The landscape is varied and includes: flowering desert, rolling hills, winding dry riverbeds, rugged canyons and pine-topped peaks, all beneath a clear, blue sky

The beauty of the Sonoran Desert is what first pulls many to Tucson, but they're often surprised at how verdant and diverse a living desert can be as they learn about  the unique ecosystems at Tohono Chul, Tucson Botanical Gardens, and Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.

Explore the wide-open wonder of the American Southwest up-close and unrestrained, hiking the mountain ranges that circle the Old Pueblo or wandering wilderness preserves and parks, from the cascades of Seven Falls at Sabino Canyon to the majestic cacti of Saguaro National Parks East & West, or from the high-pine and aspen forests of Mt. Lemmon to the cool, otherworldly depths of Colossal Cave Mountain Park or Kartchner Caverns State Park.

That amazing range of natural beauty is the backdrop to a place that refuses to be defined by expectations. Probe the cosmos at Kitt Peak National Observatory and the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory. Feed your spirit in the city's museums and galleries, or travel through time discovering Tucson's unique cultural legacy, from the collision of Spanish and Tohono O'odham cultures in the art and architecture of Mission San Xavier del Bac to 300 vintage-to-modern aircraft illuminating a century of military and aerospace history at the Pima Air & Space Museum.

You can also hop the 3.9-mile Sun Link Tucson Streetcar and roll your way through the heart of Tucson, from Main Gate Square at the University of Arizona, along Fourth Avenue, and across Downtown Tucson to Mercado San Agustin and back. Step off and on at streetcar stops to explore shops and restaurants, ranging from funky to elegant, but always memorable.
