Tucson, Arizona is a perfect place for active families to enjoy Spring Break. During March and April, the weather tends to be sunny, warm and dry. It's the perfect climate for enjoying the many outdoor activities this area offers -- golf, swimming, horseback riding, tennis, hiking, and just enjoying the Old West atmosphere.

Ringed by mountain ranges, Tucson offers many different settings to explore.
