Winter temperatures average highs of 64-75 °F, perfect for major events including Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossils Showcase, WGC-Accenture Match Play Golf Championship, La Fiesta de los Vaqueros-Tucson Rodeo, and the Festival of Books. Other prominent annual events are El Tour de Tucson, Tucson International Mariachi Conference and the Southwest Wings Birding Festival.
Summer days can get quite warm and are great for exploring Tucson’s excellent spas, museums and art galleries. Summer’s cooler early mornings and late evenings invite outdoor dining and activities like hiking, and horseback riding; early and later tee times are available at seasonally reduced prices.
