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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and O.K. Corral. Escape the urban bustle at Sabino Canyon and Kartchner Caverns State Park. Get out of town with these interesting Tucson side-trips: Boothilll Graveyard (in Tombstone) and Quarles Art Gallery (in Benson). There's still lots to do: admire the architecture and history at Mission San Xavier del Bac, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Philip's in the Hills Episcopal Church, take a memorable drive along Mt. Lemmon Scenic Byway, and meet the residents at Reid Park Zoo.

For traveler tips, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Tucson trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Tucson International Airport. In February, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
