We recently were able to visit Tuscon for a recent event. We’re excited to share our favorite reasons to visit this amazing oasis, and produce your guide to meeting and event venues in Tuscon.
What’s So Great About Tucson?
Tucson is in the aptly named, Sun Corridor, and enjoys, on average, 350 days of sun every year. (If you are like us and live somewhere with more cloudy days than sunny ones this alone may convince you to visit.)
Tucson is also home to the University of Arizona which brings a youthful vibe to this city and enriches the cultural options it provides.
Tucson has a rich history steeped in Native American traditions and culture that is worth exploring!
We also have to include the cacti in this list. They are everywhere you turn and possess the most amazingly beautiful contrast to the desert terrain. Hiking in this area is a treat! You can view these centurion giants along sandy paths that wind through the many impressive canyons. If you are lucky you may even come across a road runner or javelina (a small pig-like animal).
Tucson is a fantastic place to host an event with all of the unique activities offered there:
Try adding a trip to the Tucson Botanical Gardens, the Pima Air and Space Museum, the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun Museum or the Mission San Xavier del Bac.
And don’t forget to make time for some fun with a group taco bike tour! Enjoying tacos together = team building in our book!
Where to host your event in Tucson?
Good Things Come in Small Packages at the Arizona Inn
If you are looking for an intimate venue for your next retreat, look no further than the Arizona Inn:
This historic boutique hotel is located in Midtown and offers a uniquely charming escape. With 5,000 square feet of meeting space and four meeting rooms to choose from, the team can gather comfortably and even step out onto the garden patio for breaks!
Guests will be refreshed and ready to go after a relaxing night in their well appointed casita-style rooms and some time by the pool. *Tip: Keep an eye out for the bunnies that hop about the grounds!

Break All the Rules at Culinary Dropout
