The giant saguaro cactus is the universal symbol of the western USA, and Tucson, Arizona, is home to the nation's largest cacti. These majestic plants, found only in a small portion of the United States, are protected by Saguaro National Park, to the east and west of the modern city of Tucson. Here you have a chance to see these enormous cacti, silhouetted by the beauty of a magnificent desert sunset.

There is so much to take in while visiting this beautiful park. Saguaro National Park has two districts: East and West. The park also encompasses numerous hiking trails that wind through the stunning desert scenery — all within easy reach of the restaurants, shops and galleries of Tucson.
