Ringed by mountain ranges and baked in the desert sun, Tucson is a dream destination for lovers of the outdoors, Old West history, winter warmth, and some of the tastiest Mexican food on the planet. With 100 Things to Do in Tucson Before You Die as your guide, you’ll discover the best of the city’s diverse “borderlands” culture, complete with lively arts and food scenes, colorful festivals, and unforgettable scenery and sunsets.
Hike among the stately cacti in Saguaro National Park. Uncover the secrets of the desert at the superb, indoor-outdoor Desert Museum. Compete in or watch a 100-mile bike race, then refuel with a James Beard award-winning Sonoran hot dog. Visit the 1775-era El Presidio, where “modern” Tucson was born or escape the summer heat atop the pine-forested 9,157-foot-high Mt. Lemmon, just an hour from downtown. Marvel at the array of precious stones and dinosaur skeletons at the annual Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase, held at some 50 locations around the city, attracting vendors from around the world.
