Hotel At a Glance: Sierra Suites
An hour-and-a-half drive south from Tucson brings you to Sierra Vista, a mid-size city near five mountain ranges and the U.S. Army post Fort Huachuca. Built in the style of the old Southwest, Sierra Suites blends right in with its scenic surroundings. The airy yet earthy hotel lies within a short drive of canyons, caverns, rivers, and the many ghost towns of southern Arizona.
- Southwestern style: Tile floors, stucco, and exposed wooden beams all pay tribute to Arizona’s distinctive architectural heritage.
- Rooms with a view: Guest units open onto three separate open-air courtyards decorated with native plants and stone benches.
- Morning wakeup: A free hot breakfast buffet—including, but not limited to, eggs, sausage, and biscuits and gravy—is served daily in the dining room.
- Go swimming: A large, heated swimming pool is centrally located. Soak up rays on the spacious patio and pool deck.
- Don’t miss: Bisbee, located 26 miles to the south. Once a copper mining town, it’s now an artists’ colony filled with galleries and shops. Also about 30 minutes away is Tombstone, known as the "town too tough to die", where guests can check out gunfight shows and stage coach rides among other attractions.
Sierra Vista, Arizona: Mountain Views, Desert Terrain, and Underground Caverns
In Spanish, Sierra Vista’s name translates to “mountain view”—and nothing could be more apt. With the Huachuca, Mustang, Mule, Dragoon, and Whetstone ranges all encircling the town, mountain views are pretty much everywhere you look. To immerse yourself in the sunbaked, cactus-studded landscape, pay a visit to the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, a 57,000-acre parcel of public land set aside to preserve the desert ecosystem of the American Southwest. Here you can go horseback riding, take guided tours, and set off on hiking and mountain biking adventures. Known as the hummingbird capital of the world, Sierra Vista offers numerous opportunities for birding.
About 20 miles from Sierra Vista you’ll find Kartchner Caverns State Park, where you can see stunning stalactites and stalagmites in chilly underground caves. The infamous town of Tombstone is another fun day-trip possibility. You can visit the OK Corral, watch live reenacted shootouts at Helldorado Town, and get a feel for what it was like to live in the Wild West.
