Tucson, Arizona - Compare Hotels

Tucson, Arizona/h4>

Tourism is a major contributor to Tucson's prominence, with 10 percent of all jobs dedicated to the Tucson tourism industry.

Approximately 60 miles from the border of Mexico, and with a good number of ghost towns situated in between, Tucson has a somewhat eccentric flair distinguishing it from the more formal atmosphere of Phoenix, the state capital.

Tucson is a perfect year-round destination with both cultural and outdoor activities running around the calendar.

Arizona Travel Notes

Globe, Arizona

Arizona's Other Canyon: by Catt Foy.

The Salt River Canyon is perhaps one of Arizona's best-kept secrets and the advantage to the traveler is access to a near-pristine wilderness with some of the most spectacular scenery in the state.

The Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon: by Kathryn Lemmon.

Photos and descriptions hardly do justice to the vast, multi-colored canyon walls sculpted from the earth over the millennia by the mighty Colorado River.

Kayenta, Arizona

Visit Monument Valley: by Peggy Bechko.

Monument Valley straddles Northern Arizona and Southern Utah and takes a little effort to get there, unless you happen to own a small plane.

You could also take the Monument Valley Tour from Flagstaff.

Phoenix, Arizona

More Than Just a Barren Desert: by Chris Tourigny.

For many travelers, Phoenix, Arizona conjures up visions of barren deserts, sand dunes and tumbleweeds. In all actuality, it's quite the opposite.

Sentinal of the Sonoran Desert: by Catt Foy.

Located in central and southern Arizona, and parts of northern Mexico, the Sonoran desert is home to an American icon - the saguaro cactus (Carnegiea gigantea).

Taking a Wright Turn in Phoenix: by Douglas Welch.

I have always been an admirer of Frank Lloyd Wright's designs and a visit to Taliesin West was my first opportunity to immerse myself fully in his life and work.

Scottsdale, Arizona

Saddle Up the Lexus: by Leon Schwarzbaum.

Scottsdale, Arizona has become a magnet for vacationers and retirees, offering big city attractions amid breath-taking desert surroundings.

Sedona, Arizona

The Pink Jeep Tour: by Wendy Maxey.

When in Sedona, do as the Sedonians do and go four-wheeling in a Jeep. The Pink Jeep Tour is all the rage. Actually, it's been all the rage for over 50 years.

Vortex Hunting in Red Rock Country: by Kathryn Lemmon.

If you're serious about locating a vortex, Sedona has specialized maps and guidebooks that lead to the general area, though the exact spots are not so simple to pin down.

Tucson, Arizona

Back to the Great Outdoors: by Rita Cook.

Dude Ranches are a vestige to the days when cowboys roamed the mountains and valleys and horses were the normal mode of transportation.

Welcome To Tucson: by Paul Trevethan, Jr.

Tucson, Arizona is slowly making its mark on the map with its rich history, a full card of attractions, and the friendly people who are always willing to lend a helping hand.
