The Butterfly Peak Natural Area is a great place to escape summer heat and enjoy the cool, moist, green hills. Spring wildflowers attract butterflies, hence the name.

Any month is festival time in Tucson, thanks to a mild year-round climate. Many of these festivals celebrate the colorful history, culture, and food of the area. Tucson has a number of wineries, too, and they frequently sponsor tasting events, especially at harvest. These are a great time to sample local wines while enjoying the festival atmosphere.
Over centuries Tucson has been the home of many cultures. While attention often focuses on the wild west days, many sites predate that time. A small Spanish fort, El Presidio de Tucson, dates to 1775. Though much of the original fort has been buried under modern Tucson, portions have recently been unearthed by archaeologists.
