Art and Culture of the Southwest
Tucson has a rich shared history between the native population of the area and Wild West culture. This history is reflected in its historic districts and cultural institutions.
Becoming a state as late as 1912, Arizona is among the youngest members of the American confederation. As such, the rich Northern Mexican culture of the area lives on in the artistic and cultural scenery of the city. Several historic sites and museums outline this important history in their permanent exhibitions. The Tubac Presidio State Historic Park is a Spanish colonial fort that served as a vital American Calvary post in the early 1800s. The Fort Lowell Museum is another key historical site in American military history in the Southwest.
By booking a Tucson vacation rental, the expansive art of the city will be on your doorstep. The city center contains dozens of galleries and museums housing work from local artists, historic native art and artifacts.
