Welcome to Tucson!
With mild, sunny winter weather, Tucson is a wonderful winter conference destination. While we're sure you'll enjoy the ambience of the resort, there are also many excursion nearby to explore during the free time or if you decide to extend your stay.
The Great Outdoors
Tucson is surrounded by desert, but did you know the area has seven of the world's nine "life zones," including grasslands and alpine forest? With an elevation range from roughly 2,000 to 9,000 feet, Tucson is home to an amazing variety of ecosystems. Test your wildlife spotting skills on a hike in Sabino Canyon or the Tortolita Mountains.
The giant saguaro is the universal symbol of the American west. These majestic plants, found only in a small portion of the United States, are protected by Saguaro National Park to the east and west of Tucson. Here you have a chance to see these enormous cacti, silhouetted by the beauty of a magnificent desert sunset.
If you prefer your outdoor adventures a little less wild, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum contains a 98-acre zoo, aquarium, botanical garden, natural history museum and art gallery. Or you may enjoy a leisurely stroll through the Tucson Botanical Gardens.
