Tucson is a desert city, bordered east and west by saguaro cactus forests within the city limits, kids might see javelinas (they look like chubby dark-colored pigs) scooting off into the mesquite or a long eared jackrabbit hopping away. Tucson is also a sunny city year round, but summers are toasty, with temperatures above 100 degrees.
