One of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country, Tucson is a city on a cultural crossroads, with European, Native American, Mexican, and Asian residents blending and sometimes conflicting with one another.
Head to DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun Museum and Madaras Galleryfor plenty of shopping. Get some historical perspective at Casa Grande Ruins National Monument and St. Anthony's Greek Orthodox Monastery. Explore Tucson's surroundings by going to Elgin (Sonoita Vineyards & Rancho Rossa Vineyards), Tombstone (The Tombstone Epitaph, Gunfighter Hall of Fame, & more) and Benson (Quarles Art Gallery & Gammons Gulch). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Amerind Foundation Museum, get a new perspective on nature at International Wildlife Museum, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Tumacacori National Historical Park, and look and learn at Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter Observatory.
