Discover Tucson: Activities & Excursions

More than just saguaros and Sonoran hot dogs, Tucson, Arizona is a cultural and natural hub where visitors can experience the Southwest as it was meant to be. Situated along the banks of the Santa Cruz River and bordered by both the Sonoran Desert and the Catalina Mountains, Tucson owes much of its powerful allure to its ancient land, heritage and spirituality.

Kartchner Caverns Tours

This stunning “live” limestone cave offers unique mineral formations. Stalactites drip down like icicles and stalagmites tower up from the ground. In-depth guided tours reveal the wonder of this natural phenomenon, which is one of Southern Arizona’s most treasured state parks. Learn More.


Sabino Canyon

Visit Sabino Canyon, one of the premier natural areas in southern Arizona. Here you will find outstanding scenery that features steep rock cliffs and unique desert vegetation adjacent to riparian corridors. You may get lucky and view a Gila monster, bobcat, Gambel's quail, eastern collard lizard, gopher snake and more. The animals of this area adapt to our 100+ degree summers and mild winters. Due to winter snowmelt and summer lightning storms, Sabino Creek flows almost year-round. Enjoy a picnic at one of the many pools and cascades that grace Sabino Creek. Contact the concierge for more information.
