Summerfest Cultural Safari

Discover Hidden Gems

To help guests discover the hidden gems of the Tucson destination, Loews Ventana Canyon Resort offers a “Summerfest Cultural Safari.” The Summerfest Cultural Safari is fully inclusive and is designed for all ages and all abilities, with a majority of the points of interest within a short radius from Loews Ventana Canyon Resort.

  • DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun Museum, a nationally recognized historic location features immersive southwest art including the current exhibit “DeGrazia’s Sombreros” & “DeGrazia’s Native Dancers” that trace more than fifty years of the evolving symbolism and abstraction of the traditional Mexican sombrero in the artwork of Ted DeGrazia.
  • Eegees, local frozen treats. As the summer heat rises, Tucson locals know just the way of cooling off with favorite frozen treats. Travel through the Old Pueblo and you're sure to notice one of the most popular local franchises, Eegees. A common delight for locals but visitors often ask, 'What's an Eegee?' Think of a classic snow cone combined with a fruit smoothie. Each month they feature a "Flavor of the Month" featuring tastes like Dragon Berry, Lucky Lime, Orange Dream, and Mango Tango. While this restaurant is also known for tasty sub sandwiches and crisp crinkle fries, it's all about this cold frozen drink.
  • Mount Lemmon, leave the desert heat and cacti below as you escape Tucson this summer heading up Mt. Lemmon. This 9,159-foot summit will transport you to another place and season as the cacti are replaced with pine trees and the triple digits turn into 75-degree days. Locals will travel the Scenic Byway to spend a day among the pines taking in the cooler weather and enjoying the beautiful change of scenery. After hiking through the Catalina Forest you won't be disappointed with a stop at the Mt. Lemmon Cookie Cabin for a slice of pizza or a sweet homemade cookie topped with ice cream. Enjoy stargazing and astronomy events all summer at Mt. Lemmon Sky Center Observatory.
  • Sabino Canyon, located just up the road from Loews Ventana Canyon Resort via shuttle, Sabino Canyon is the go-to location recreational area for locals and tourists alike and is a perfect morning outing for families. Hop on the tram up for a narrated ride to the end and enjoy a scenic walk back complete with several stops that include picnic areas and even flowing water at stop #8.
