This 2-centre holiday includes a week in Tucson followed by a week in Phoenix, 2 cities located in the flourishing Sonoran Desert rich with history, culture, entertainment, arts, culinary delights and unique shopping opportunities.
Tucson (the “City of Sunshine”) is a fascinating mix of Wild Western, Spanish, Mexican and Indian cultures. Nearby is the famous Wild West town of Tombstone - home to the legendary Wyatt Earp and the OK Corral.
Phoenix is located in the “Valley of The Sun” - so called because there are more than 300 days of sunshine every year. In addition to the desert, lush with Saguaro and Prickly Pear cactus, the nearby Superstition Mountains offer an incredible diversity of wildlife.
In both locations we will stay at the Embassy Suites by Hilton. (Tucson East and the Biltmore in Phoenix). The spacious suites are tastefully decorated and contain a separate bedroom with either two Queen beds or one King.
The living/dining area in the suites have a wet bar with microwave, coffee-maker, fridge and sink.
Both hotels have a restaurant, heated outdoor pool, complimentary Wi-Fi, beautifully landscaped courtyards, a fitness centre, made-to-order breakfasts and complimentary Evening Receptions. Our Phoenix hotel is within a mile of Camelback Mountain (a great place to walk and experience the local flora and fauna), golf courses, the Biltmore Fashion Park, and Old Town Scottsdale.
