Tucson & the Old Southwest
- App Store Info
Description••• Exploring the 'Old Pueblo' in the Sonoran Desert •••
Indian lands, Spanish colony, Mexican outpost, wild western American territory and finally the State of Arizona - the history of the lands surrounding the 'Old Pueblo' makes for fascinating diversity and exciting exploration. Saguaro-studded desert to riverine canyons to pine-topped mountains - the geography is equally as diverse. First-time visitors or armchair travelers will find precise details about the most visit-worthy sites and events, and long-time desert rats can discover quirks that will intrigue them.
