Before you leave home, pause and check the parking lot availability on the Denver International (DEN) website so you don't waste time circling full lots. Once you have selected a lot, take I-70 to get to the airport. You'll be touring Tucson in no time, as flights usually last for just over 90 minutes. After you land at Tucson International (TUS), get on the Sun Tran, a public bus offering service to Tucson.
Explore the desert terrain of Tucson with a stop at Saguaro National Park. This 91,327-acre park is dedicated to the saguaro cactus. For more outdoor adventure, visit the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum; a sizable zoo that is home to 300 species indigenous to the area. Get a taste of Tucson art with a stop at the Tucson Museum of Art. This gallery houses a collection of local art that reflect the Mexican-inspired aesthetic of the region. If you love westerns, tour Old Tucson Studios. This now defunct studio was the site of the filming of over 300 movies and shows.
Stay in Sam Hughes for a bustling atmosphere. Be advised, however, that you'll be near the University of Arizona, so you will be surrounded by college students. For another option with an urban feel, try Armory Park. Tucson is warm year-round, but can become sweltering in the summer. Avoid June through August if you don't love the heat.
