Famous for its dramatic beauty, the Sonoran Desert covers the Tucson area with spectacular cacti including the giant saguaro, a symbol of the American Southwest. But dont be fooled by the term desert because mountain ranges in all directions offer scenic drives, and even snow skiing. In the winter you can go for a hike in the valley, then drive up to Mt. Lemmon and enjoy the slopes. Tucsons legendary year-round sunshine and saguaro-and-sunset landscape have romanced visitors for decades.
