Site Visit: Tuscon, Arizona

By Connect Staff, May 17, 2012

A city founded more than 10,000 years ago in the American Southwest is as steeped in religion as it is in history. Tucson, Ariz., located in the Sonoran Desert, has deep Spanish Catholic roots along with Native American customs and influences throughout the town. St. Augustine’s Cathedral is two centuries old and still holds weekly services. Groups can tour both the cathedral and the Mission of San Xavier del Bac, built in 1797, which still has its original statues and paintings. Tucson’s downtown district features a 2.5 mile-long path marked by a turquoise line, which leads visitors to the different historical landmarks around the city. After a morning of sightseeing, groups can eat at the oldest, continually operated, family-owned restaurant in the country, El Charro Café. The Sonoran-influenced restaurant serves authentic Southwestern cuisine. And when it’s time to call it a night, there are several lodging options available. The Arizona Riverpark Inn is located three blocks from the Tucson Convention Center, a three-level facility that has more than 205,000 square feet of flexible event space for meetings.
