We get it. You want to explore the joy of traveling, but you do not want to leave your four-legged friend behind. That is why you do not have to, when you stay in one of the pet-friendly hotels the second-largest city in Arizona, Tucson, has to offer.
Tucson loves to keep its quality of life at a high standard and works hard at controlled growth. This sets it apart from the populous and nearby Phoenix area. As a result, the city still harbors an old Mexican character and preserves its wonderful natural surroundings. This makes the city unique and a wonderful destination for nature lovers.
More than that, the natural environment surrounding Tucson is absolutely phenomenal and is perfect for bringing your pet along on many strolls and even hikes. At Saguaro National Park, you can marvel at the massive cacti that have come to symbolize the desert of the Southwest. Take a hike or a horseback ride up one of the trails that lead into the wilderness from the edge of the city, and you may even meet up with a few desert denizens in their natural habitat.
Look beyond the saguaros and prickly pears, and you can find a desert oasis, complete with waterfalls and swimming holes. A short drive from the city, a pine forest that is home to the southernmost ski area in the country, will welcome you two. In short, you and your dog will have an incredible time in Tucson, Arizona.
