The endless sunshine, warm and dry climate, and unrivalled natural beauty make Arizona one of North America’s most popular vacation destinations. On this 2-Centre holiday we spend 7 nights in Phoenix and 7 nights in Tucson. Both cities have an abundance of history, culture, arts and entertainment. A wonderful diversity of food, galleries and shopping are available wherever you turn in these charming ‘Old West” towns.
Phoenix is located in the “Valley of The Sun”, so called because there are more than 300 days of sunshine every year. The beautiful climate here makes it the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors. The city is rich in arts and culture, with a wide array of sumptuous restaurants and culinary delights. In addition the desert, lush with Saguaro and Prickly Pear cactus, and the nearby Superstition Mountains offer an incredible diversity of wildlife.
In Phoenix, we will stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, Midtown. Situated in the heart of Phoenix, it is a short walk to world-class shopping, art galleries, dining options and the Light Rail system enabling easy access to all parts of the city.
Tucson, the “City of Sunshine”, is a fascinating mix of Wild Western, Spanish, Mexican and Indian cultures. It is known for the flourishing beauty of the surrounding Sonoran Desert, and nearby is the Wild West town of Tombstone - home to Wyatt Earp and the OK Corral.
Our hotel in Tucson will be the Embassy Suites by Hilton - an all-suite hotel. The spacious suites are tastefully decorated and contain a separate bedroom with either two Double beds or one King. The living/dining area in the suites have a wet bar with microwave, coffee-maker, refrigerator and sink.
Both hotels offer on-site restaurants, heated outdoor pools, beautifully landscaped courtyards, fitness centre, complimentary WiFi and buffet breakfasts.
