Calm, soothing and serene, the Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona beckons travelers from around the world to its boundless blue skies, year-round warm weather, and laid-back sensibility. Tucson resort vacations immerse you into all these things, with a rich culture and history to boot. The desert calls to all of us, from Saguaro National Park to Tucson Botanical Gardens. It's also home to some of the most unique places in the U.S., like the Cold War holdover of the Titan Missile Museum. Of course, there's also plenty of Southwestern shopping, dining, golf and outdoor fun, too.
Conveniently located right outside your casita door, Starr Pass Tucson Golf Club offers three of the most famously scenic 9-hole courses in Southern Arizona. Tucson vacations at this Southwestern themed resort immerse guests in the rugged beauty and ancient wisdom of the Sonoran Desert, just a short drive from landmark destinations like Saguaro National Park to the west, Coronado National Forest in the nearby Santa Catalina Mountains to the east, and Tucson Botanical Gardens in the heart of town. Its arid climate and challenging landscape have made the Southwest a nexus for secret operations and scientific discovery. Famous examples include the Titan Missile Museum, a Cold War nuclear holdover; and Biosphere 2, a three-acre model of Earth in miniature. The desert's appeal isn't limited to science though, as the wild gunfights at historic Old Tucson Studios prove. Modern travelers also love the bevy of stylish malls and award-winning restaurants filling the city's streets today.
