Whether you're looking for an outdoor adventure or a fun family vacation, you'll find it in Tucson. History buffs will love touring the 18th-century San Xavier del Bac Mission, the oldest European building in Arizona. Or, take to the skies at the Pima Air and Space Museum, which is home to approximately 300 aircraft, including bombers used by the U.S. Army during World War II. You won't have any trouble visiting these top attractions during your stay, since many of the best RV campgrounds in Tucson are less than 10 miles away.
Campers looking to escape the city and get back in touch with nature should plan an excursion to the Saguaro National Park. Split into two sections to the east and west of Tucson, Saguaro National Park encompasses over 90,000 acres of Sonoran Desert, as well as the Rincon and Tucson Mountains. Plan a hike through the park and stop to admire the towering saguaro cactus, or trek up Wasson Peak for glorious panoramas of the surrounding countryside. Hikes will vary quite a bit in terms of length and difficulty, so remember to choose the right trail for your fitness level.
Be sure to bring along your binoculars to spot some local bird species, including greater roadrunners, Gila woodpeckers, and northern goshawks.
