Visit Tucson

In the heart of the Sonoran Desert, and just 70 miles (112 km) north of the U.S.-Mexico border, metropolitan Tucson is surrounded by a unique and diverse ecosystem sharing space with a long cultural heritage, varied artistic communities, climate and being unpretentious.

Visit Tucson, and its Spanish division Vamos a Tucson (click on the logos to link to their websites), has information about hiking, cycling or climbing in the natural beauty of the four mountain ranges surrounding Tucson, staying at world-class resorts and spas, taking a bite of the cuisine that made Tucson the first U.S. city to be designated by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a World City of Gastronomy or eating your way along the Best 23 Miles of Mexican Food north of the border.

Visit Tucson can also help with planning meetings and provide information about special events, including the annual Tucson Gem and Mineral Shows.
