Welcome to Tucson
Discover our Neighborhood
Twelve thousand years ago, it was a Native American village by the name of “stukshon.” Loosely translated, it means, “springs from the foot of the black hill.” Which is exactly what Tucson does. Situated along the banks of the Santa Cruz River and bordered by both the Sonoran Desert and the Catalina Mountains, Tucson owes much of its powerful allure to its ancient land, heritage, and spirituality.
Here at Loews Ventana Canyon, you will discover the beauty of the Sonoran landscape, the complexity of the stars, and the sophistication of the city of Tucson. So explore the great outdoors on the resort's beautiful nature trail, or hike Sabino Canyon, just minutes from our hotel.

Come visit Sabino Canyon, one of the premier natural areas in southern Arizona. This recreation area is located at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains at 5700 N. Sabino Canyon, Tucson, AZ 85750. Here you will find outstanding scenery that features steep rock cliffs and unique desert vegetation adjacent to riparian corridors. You may get lucky and view a Gila Monster, Bobcat, Gambel's Quail, Eastern Collard Lizard, Gopher Snake, and more. The animals of this area adapt to our 100+ degree summers and mild winters. The Sonoran desert has two rainy seasons; gentle winter rains, and dramatic summer monsoon. Due to winter snowmelt and summer electrifying lightning storms, Sabino Creek flows almost year-round. Come have a picnic at one of the many pools and cascades that grace Sabino Creek.
