The Destination
Built on the banks of the now dry Santa Cruz River deep in Arizona's Sonora Desert, Tucson's high elevation and the mountains surrounding the city make it a hot year-round playground. Boasting the southernmost ski resorts in the United States, the shrub-covered hills provide a stark contrast with the towering saguaros and Spanish-style adobe structures that are scattered throughout this modern metropolis, where the University of Arizona makes its home.

The Digs
Tanque Verde Ranch is an oasis of rustic comfort in the midst of the harsh desert climate. The Santa Fe-inspired furnishings of your Sala Room offer a cozy and air-conditioned place to hang your hat after a day of horseback riding around the ranch, which is included in your package.

Breakfast might include blueberry pancakes and eggs cooked over a mesquite wood fire, and we suggest paying a bit extra for a barbecue cookout dinner with live entertainment, or a hearty meal in the dining room, where you'll find a tempting southwestern buffet spread featuring locally grown seasonal vegetables in regional specialties like green chili grits, chilled watermelon soup, and mole coloradito. When you're tuckered out, make your way down the cactus-lined paths to the spa for a relaxing treatment.

  • "The most upscale of Tucson's guest ranches and one of the oldest in the country, the Tanque Verde sits on 640 beautiful acres in the Rincon Mountains next to Saguaro National Park East. Rooms in one-story casitas have tasteful Western-style furnishings.
