Arizona - Tucson (Chapter)
This is the Tucson chapter from Lonely Planet's Arizona guidebook.
Tucson is the realest city in Arizona, if by ‘city’ we mean a place where people from different backgrounds interact on a daily basis in a shared physical and mental space; another of its best attributes is the meltingly beautiful desert landscape it's ensconced in.
