Tucson: Jewel In The Arizona Desert

Tucson is sometimes thought of as just an endless land of cacti, but the city has plenty of great activities, as well as some very striking scenery. At the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, you can see all of the desert plants and creatures and learn more about them. Those who enjoy the great outdoors will enjoy the hiking, rock climbing, and sightseeing at the Catalina State Park, which is connected to the stunning Catalina mountain range. For an enjoyable evening out, Tucson offers a Vegas-style casino called Desert Diamond, and a greyhound race track known as The Tucson Greyhound Park."
