The most populous city in Southern Arizona and second largest in the state, Tucson is rich in history, culture and natural attractions. It is surrounded by five mountain ranges, including the Santa Catalina Mountains, home of Mount Lemmon, the southernmost ski resort in the nation. Just outside of town is the acclaimed Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, a showcase of native animals and plants in a beautiful natural setting. Golf courses abound, and Major League Baseball spring training brings the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Chicago White Sox and the Colorado Rockies.
Tucson has a rich historical heritage, influenced by Native American, Spanish and pioneer cultures. Jesuit missionaries built the Mission San Xavier del Bac in the 18th century, and it still glows white against the desert just south of town. In downtown Tucson, the Barrio Historico district features beautifully painted historic adobe buildings.
Northeast of Tucson, near Oracle, you can visit Biosphere 2, a testing facility of self-sustaining environments under huge greenhouse-like structures.
