Things to Do in Tucson

Thanks to the pleasant weather, there are many activities in Tucson that let you connect with nature. Bring your hiking boots and explore one of the five mountain ranges that surround the city. The Santa Catalina, Tortolita, Rincon and Tucson Mountains have a variety of hiking trails for all skill levels. We especially like Sabino Canyon in the Santa Catalinas. If you're an experienced hiker, try the rugged Seven Falls trail, which takes about three hours and crisscrosses over Sabino Creek, ending at the falls and natural pools where you can take a dip before hiking back down. If it's a more relaxing hike you're after, try the paved Sabino Canyon Trail.

If you've brought along the whole family, one of the top things to do in Tucson has to be a visit to the Arizona-Sedona Desert Museum. You'll find exhibits that recreate the natural landscape of the Sonoran Desert so kids (and parents) will be thrilled to get up close with lifelike Gila monsters, mountain lions and other desert fauna. And if you have a little cowboy in your group, a visit to Tombstone, just south of Tucson, is in order. You'll be able to watch a recreation of the shootout at the O.K. Corral and see historical buildings and monuments.

Of course, one of the most popular activities in Tucson involves the ultimate in relaxation: spas! This area is known for rejuvenating spas that often incorporate the Sonoran Desert's mystical spirit. Did you know that hot stone massages were invented here? Take your pick of indulgent spas and resorts, many of which also feature challenging golf courses.

It's easy to fly to Tucson and experience all that the area has to offer, from active outdoor options to more leisurely pursuits. Let American Airlines can help you plan a trip that's exactly right for you.
