Stepping out into the brilliant sunshine on a warm winter’s day in Tucson is enough to make you pause and take a deep breath in.  So many options for outdoor adventure, as Tucson is surrounded by five mountain ranges and has a national park on either side of the city.  This breathtaking landscape provides scenic vistas and endless opportunities for outdoor activities once you step out of the ballroom.

Outdoor Adventure

For some adventure and education in the Sonoran Desert, the best way to experience the magic and beauty is a jeep tour.  These guided tours stop along the way to share information regarding the Sonoran Desert.  You’ll see ancient petroglyphs on the rocks created by the Hohokam peoples thousands of years ago, and you may find  pottery shards just as old on the ground nearby.

Or how about a horseback trail ride into Saguaro National Park?  You’ll be riding amongst the giant cactus with breathtaking views in all directions.  Hot tip:  take the sunset trail ride for spectacular picture worthy vistas.

What about golf on one of the many beautiful championship courses around town?  Golf is back and here to stay!  High desert golf offers a serene landscape you won’t find anywhere else, with courses designed by top golfer such as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.
