Southern Arizona Trip Planner
Welcome to Southern Arizona!
Southern Arizona is home to Tucson, one of the state's largest cities and a bastion of culture and entertainment. Some of the local museums include the Center for Creative Photography, the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum and theTucson Museum of Art, all of which are complimented by a number of galleries and theatres throughout the city. State parks and historic sites are well represented in Southern Arizona as well, such as the Catalina State Park for camping and the Coronado National Memorial, a site which commemorates the first foray into the American Southwest by Europeans. Kartchner Caverns State Park offers a variety of recreational and educational opportunities, including guided cave tours, a discovery center and over 60 campsites. Due to the state's proximity to Mexico, culture from south of the border has an influence on Southern Arizona, resulting in a rich community diversity.
