Whether you’re a foodie, an alfresco fitness fan, a culture vulture or a science geek, there’s a Tucson getaway for you.
Locals aren’t kidding when they say Tucson feels like a small town; it’s the kind of place where familiar faces are as common as taco stands, and where the vibe is a cross-breed of San Diego chill and Austin offbeat-country charm. Despite its folksiness, Arizona’s second-largest city is crammed with recreational options for every personality type, from food fanatics and outdoorsy people to Bill Nye the Science Guy-types and arts aficionados who know more about kick lines than place kicks.
Knock out a hike and tip back a cold one in Arizona high country.
DOG RATING SYSTEM:
*** Best - An abundance of water, interesting stuff to explore, easy-on-the-pads terrain and other dogs to play with make these top-notch doggie destinations.
** Good - More challenging, longer and rougher, these hikes may put too much strain on older or inexperienced dogs.
* Fair - Only the most physically fit, booty-equipped dogs should attempt these “ruff” trails.
