Benson is a city in Cochise County, Arizona, United States, east-southeast of Tucson. Kartchner Caverns State Park has been added to your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Fort Bowie National Historic Site and Forever Home Donkey Rescue. Step off the beaten path and head to The Nature Conservancys Ramsey Canyon Preserve and San Pedro House. Go for a jaunt from Benson to Mount Lemmon to see Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter Observatory about 1h 35 min away. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Benson Museum, see the interesting displays at Amerind Foundation Museum, view the masterpieces at Quarles Art Gallery, and shop like a local with The Thing.
