Hidden Treasures in Tucson
The big attractions in Tucson draw big crowds for a reason. But sometimes, it's more fun to find little out-of-the-way places that aren't quite common knowledge and have a quiet charm that make them feel like they are completely your own. These "hidden treasures" may not be hidden for long, so enjoy them while you can.
Instead of staying in a crowded and noisy hotel the next time you're in Tucson, why not opt for a charming little bed and breakfast? One of the most inviting of these is the Bella Vista de Tucson Bed and Breakfast
. This hillside home offers not only spectacular views of the city and the mountains but also features private entrances and baths, Wi-Fi and cable TV, and foot paths and benches for you to enjoy a little cool evening air. Its West Side location puts you near Saguaro National Park, Desert Museum and Xavier Mission.

isn't your ordinary bed and breakfast.

Hacienda Linda features an open floor plan, with the six bedrooms on the opposite side of the house for complete privacy. Amenities like WiFi, Tempurpedic beds and a full breakfast are available. Also, you can relax in the day spa and book a session with the massage therapist.
