Tucson & Phoenix, the Odd Couple in Arizona
Sunny, warm Arizona is home to two fun, but distinct cities that are excellent places to break from the winter cold. Tucson is a quirky laid back town with great mexican food, nearby national parks, and the annual Dia De Los Muertos festival which is the largest in the country. Phoenix is a little more straight forward with excellent golf, urban hiking on Camelback Mountain, and 70 degree bluebird sky winter days. Explore, Eat, Play, Experience.
