Saguaro National Park
Tree-like saguaros resemble sentinels watching over the desert
The best views of the American Southwest
The giant saguaro cactus is the universal symbol of the western USA, and Tucson, Arizona, is home to the nation's largest cacti. These majestic plants, found only in a small portion of the United States, are protected by Saguaro National Park, to the east and west of the modern city of Tucson. Here you have a chance to see these enormous cacti, silhouetted by the beauty of a magnificent desert sunset.
There is so much to take in while visiting this beautiful park. Saguaro National Park has two districts: East and West. The park also encompasses numerous hiking trails that wind through the stunning desert scenery — all within easy reach of the restaurants, shops and galleries of Tucson.
