The giant saguaro, the universal symbol of the American west, is only found in a small region of the country. These enormous cacti are protected by Saguaro National Park, so locals have the privilege of seeing these as often as they please.

Fresh air and exercise can turn any bad day into a good one. Imagine going on a hike each morning before or after work. Maybe even on Sundays. What a great way to let loose and connect with nature so close to home. There are lengthy and exhilarating hikes and trails to go on. If you’re a seasoned hiker, you’re in for a real treat. There are three main routes on Mica Mountain that range from 16 to 26 miles round trip. The longest and most popular 26-mile hike is commonly done as an overnighter. The views are exquisite and well worth the hike. The Rincon Mountains are not recommended for day hiking as they are much more difficult to take on.
Hiking is not for everyone, but there are dozens of things to do in the city. Tucson is full of museums, golf courses, colleges, restaurants, coffee shops, parks, and theaters as well as Reid Park Zoo, Kitt Peak National Observatory, Campbell Avenue Bat Colony (a colony of 40,000 Mexican free-tailed bats), Tucson Botanical Gardens, and so much more. The bat colony resides between the concrete rafters of the Campbell avenue bridge on Rillito River. The bats take off anywhere between 30 minutes to two hours before the sun sets. The experience and view of thousands of bats across the Tucson sunset is miraculous. Some of the many museums in Tucson include the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Arizona State Museum, Pima Air and Space Museum, University of Arizona Museum of Art and Jewish History Museum.
