The reservation is surrounded by richly vegetated, scenic desert that offers recreational and sightseeing opportunities. The Mt. Lemmon ski area is an hour east of Tucson, and Saguaro National Monument is a few miles north.  Other sights include the San Xavier del Bac Mission, Old Tucson Studios, Sonoran Desert Museum, and Kitt Peak Observatory.
