Explore Tucson


Arizona’s capital city has undergone a metamorphosis. The evidence is obvious: a light-rail mass-transit system, the CityScape shopping and entertainment district, and several hotel and high-rise residential projects. There’s a great, gritty monthly spotlight on local artists called First Fridays, especially along Roosevelt Row and Grand Avenue, as well as such here-to-stay venues as Phoenix Art Museum, Heard Museum, Talking Stick Resort Arena (NBA Suns, WNBA Mercury), Chase Field (MLB Diamondbacks), Heritage Square and several performance theaters. Drive time from Tucson: 90 to 120 minutes.
