Trip Advisor has named Tucson as #7 on its list of Top Destinations on the Rise in the United States. In choosing the southern Arizona city, Trip Advisor states:

Although Tucson’s fantastic weather, national parks and forests and desert provide the perfect environment for tons of outdoor recreational activities, this city of half a million people also has its share of history and culture. With a history that goes back much further than many of its southwestern neighbors, Tucson boasts turn-of-the-century architecture, historic neighborhoods, museums and the Mission San Xavier del Bac, a still-functioning 18th-century mission considered one of the most beautiful in the U.S. Mexican and Native American influences are pervasive, and the city has a distinctly Western flavor. There’s also a college-town atmosphere, thanks to the University of Arizona, which has its own share of museums and a science center. Whether golfing at a world-class golf resort, horseback riding, hiking in the wilderness, discovering desert flora and fauna at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum or exploring pre-Columbian and other art at the Tucson Art Museum, you’ll have a mind-boggling array of things to do. 

Among the attractions considered in creating the list are hotels, restaurants, historical landmarks, activities, climate, parks, scenery, arts, museums, culture and more. Trip Advisor’s top Things To Do in Tucson include the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, Sabino Canyon, Pima Air & Space Museum, Mt. Lemon Scenic Byway, Mission San Xavier del Bac, Tohono Chul, The Gaslight Theatre, Gates Pass, Madera Canyon, Catalina State Park, DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun, University of Arizona, and Reid Park Zoo.
