Tucson is Arizona’s second-largest city and the picture-postcard images of cactus forests, rolling hills and awe-inspiring mountains will be instantly familiar to fans of big screen Western movies.
Tucson lies in what is known as the borderlands - a region that enjoys a rich blend of the cultures of America and Mexico - and has been settled for some 12,000 years by ancient Native American peoples, Spanish explorers and frontiersmen. In the early 1800s the town had a reputation as a rowdy frontier settlement with frequent gunfights outside – and sometimes inside – the many colourful saloons, and all of the legendary gunfighters will have passed through Tucson.
Fabulous accommodation of all possible types is available from 5-star resorts with spas and golf to ranches offering an authentic western experience.Be sure to visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Old Tucson Studios, Saquaro National Park and Biosphere 2. Also, prepare yourself for the mind-boggling sight of thousands of aircraft placed in storage around the city.... the “airplane graveyards”.

Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
