Popularly known as the City of Sunshine, Tucson is the second-largest city in Arizona, under Pima County. The desert-influenced location is situated on the northern part of the US-Mexico border and boasts many outdoor and cultural attractions. The town’s landscape is blessed with desert fauna and flora and you will also see many stunning gardens. Panning of gold is still a popular activity here and also be ready to relish Mexican-inspired cuisine and drinks. Sleeping out in the wilderness can be fun, but the desert elements can be limiting. However, you’ll find some glamping spots that not only protect you from the harsh elements, but also offer modern conveniences such as a kitchen, WiFi, and air-conditioning. Read on for our list of the best glamping spots in Tucson, Arizona.
