Last month I ventured out to the west coast to explore Tucson, Arizona and Southern California with my family. I am thrilled to share my experience through pictures and recommendations. We spent the majority of the time in Cali but started and ended the trip in Tucson.
Tucson is located in the Sonora desert amid the Santa Catalina Mountains. The city combines the traditional Native American and vibrant Hispanic culture with a true “wild west” essence along with thriving innovations. Tucson sets a dreamy tone with mountain shadows, scattered cacti and paint-like whiskey sunsets. Think turquoise jewelry, year-round sunshine, local art and outdoor enthusiasts.

My brother and I hiked up 3,000 ft elevation and found a little Indian friend glued to the highest point!
This boutique district is an absoute architecture oasis where all the locals go to yoga class, eat sushi, purchase art and grab drinks.
