Surrounded by five mountain ranges, Tucson is just 40 miles from Mount Lemmon, the southernmost ski destination in the continental United States. If you’re looking for Tucson hotels, Extended Stay Hotels has two great places to stay and both offer great rates.
Tucson is home to the University of Arizona , the city’s second largest employer and considered by some to be one of just a few “public Ivy” league universities. This statement is reinforced by U.S. News and World Report’s ranking of several of the university’s programs within the top 25 in the nation.
The military has a major impact on Tucson with Davis-Monthan Air Force Base located on the southeastern edge of the city. The Crossland Suites Butterfield Drive hotel is just minutes from Davis-Monthan.
About an hour and a half south of Tucson is Fort Huachuca , home of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center. This facility has been a major force for the local economy because of its influence on the development of more than 1,200 high-tech companies in the region.
Tucson is an ideal place to spend time in the great outdoors. Hikers, climbers and bicyclists will find unique opportunities, both along urban paths and over amazing desert or mountain trails. For a classic western experience, visit one of several stables in the area and see this fabulous country from horseback. Those lucky enough to be in town at the end of February must attend the world’s longest non-motorized parade, the Tucson Rodeo Parade.
Tucson has much to offer those looking for indoor recreation as well. Several local art museums feature both classical and traditional western art. The University of Arizona Center for Creative Photography features the works of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston.
Animal enthusiasts will be eager to visit the International Wildlife Museum of Tucson , a Member of the Safari Club Foundation. The museum displays over 400 species of animals from around the world, showcased in dioramas, videos, and interactive displays.
Thanks to its superb year-round weather, Tucson has multiple golf opportunities. Near both Extended Stay Hotels is the Randolph North Golf Course , an 18-hole championship public course in Gene C. Reid Park.
Those looking for a comfortable, convenient, and affordable Tucson hotel have two exceptional choices: Crossland Economy Studios Tucson - Butterfield Drive or Extended Stay America Tucson - Grant Road.
