Tubac

Spend some time in this Spanish Presidio turned artist colony, where creativity is as present in the galleries and shops as it is in restaurant kitchens.

Nestled between the Tumacacori and Santa Rita mountain ranges, Tubac is a small community known as the place where art and history meet. Established in 1752 as a Spanish Presidio, Tubac has since transformed into the premier destination in Southern Arizona for culture, history, and art.

Tubac offers an astonishing array of premium galleries, unique shopping, fine art, and dining. Here, one can find world-renowned birding, hiking (or strolling), biking, holistic health and spa treatments, wine tastings, and art classes. Tubac is also home to 27 gorgeous holes of golf at the Tubac Golf Resort, a prestigious AAA Four-Diamond rated property. Adding to Tubac’s appeal are the historic Presidio State Park and the nearby Tumacacori National Historical Park, which offer doorways into Arizona’s rich history and culture.

Whether you take a day-trip or choose to stay a while, you will find Tubac to be the place not only where art and history meet, but where memories are made.
