Lodge on the Desert - Tucson, Arizona, 85711, United States

Area Attractions

  • RF - Nature Cactus Sunset Panoramic

What’s so special about Tucson and Southern Arizona? Well, for one thing its attractions and so very many and diverse things to see and do. For another, it’s the proximity of hotels near whatever piques your interest.

Nature lovers revel in the wide open spaces and elevations from desert floor to foothills to mountains. From the civility and order of Tohono Chul Park, to the vastness of the Saguaro National Parks (East or West), the magnificence of the high Sonoran desert is breathtaking. If hiking appeals, there’s Pima Canyon or Sabino Canyon. The untouched beauty and majesty of the Santa Catalina Mountains awaits exploration. Finger Rock Trail is but one example while the Sabino Canyon Recreational Area makes for an educational as well as practical respite for serious walkers and hikers or those who wish to simply enjoy the Southern Arizona scenery.

The Tucson Padres, Tucson’s Minor League Baseball team and Triple-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, calls Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium, formerly Tucson Electric Park, ‘home’… and literally plays ball mid-April through August at Tucson Electric Park. 2011 marks its first season in the Old Pueblo.

And, for visitors who are military-minded, there’s Davis Monthan Air Force Base, host wing to the 355th Fighter Wing. Restricted tours are available.
