Tucson

— 5 nights

Old Pueblo

One of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country, Tucson is a city on a cultural crossroads, with European, Native American, Mexican, and Asian residents blending and sometimes conflicting with one another.
Step out of Tucson to go to Benson and see Double R Ranch, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Mt. Lemmon Scenic Byway, cool off at Oro Valley Aquatic Center, take in the history at Mission San Xavier del Bac, and look for gifts at Madaras Gallery.
