Car Hire Tucson

Tucson Airport Guide

Tucson’s attractions centre on its history and on the location in the Sonora Desert. Hiring a four wheel drive car and heading out of the city you can see natural wonders such as the Sabino Canyon on the northern fringe of Tucson. There, you can catch a tram that will take you through the canyon and the linked Bear Canyon for some spectacular sights. The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum has to be seen. Telling you all about the geology, natural history and human history of the region, it’s part zoo, part museum and part fun park.

Tucson Info

Tucson has a great history. Originally settled by Native Americans it fell under Spanish control after the visit of a Jesuit missionary in 1700 before eventually falling into Mexican hands. It reverted back to Spanish control briefly before becoming Mexican once more. Languishing in Mexico for the best part of a century, it eventually became independent in 1854. Over the next 60 years it was the typical Wild West city with stage coach hold ups and more. Eventually it settled and today has become an important producer of precision optical equipment.

Tucson Trivia:
  • Tucson is the second biggest city in Arizona after Phoenix
  • It’s under an hour’s drive to the Mexican border from Tucson
  • Because of the manufacture of optical equipment there, Tucson is known as Optics Valley
  • The name comes from the Native American meaning ‘at the base of the black hill’
