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.
Do your shopping at Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Tumacacori National Historical Park and Boyce Thompson Arboretum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Tucson: Casa Grande Ruins National Monument (in Coolidge), Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch (in Picacho) and St. Anthony's Greek Orthodox Monastery (in Florence). Next up on the itinerary: browse the exhibits of Kitt Peak National Observatory, examine the collection at The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures, view the masterpieces at Quarles Art Gallery, and steep yourself in history at The Tombstone Epitaph.

For traveler tips, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Tucson vacation planner .

In March, daytime highs in Tucson are 77°F, while nighttime lows are 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
