Speak of the desert
Surrounded by majestic saguaros and lush desert foliage, Tucson's Saguaro National Park is the true epitome of Arizona’s rugged and natural beauty. And while its stunning scenery sets this southern Arizona city apart from the rest, so too does its designation as a City of Gastronomy, the first in the United States. To celebrate the area's unique flavor, we’re teaming up with Under Canvas Tucson on Oct. 5 to present an unforgettable five-course dinner prepared by local chefs paired with vintages from area wineries.
Head out to stay in
