What is the goal of a good vacation? A change of scenery, escape the responsibilities of work and everyday life, and do something fun in the process. Not everyone can travel for days at a time and getting extended time off could be almost impossible for others. Luckily, you can take a “staycation.”
A staycation means you travel somewhere within minutes or just a few hours from your home. You get a change of scenery by staying in a hotel or resort nearby and take part in the activities they offer. The best part about living in Tucson is that there are plenty of places to take a weekend staycation, and summer is the least expensive time to book!

No matter where you’re traveling, the Ritz Carlton has the “Gold Standard” experience you’ve been looking for in every resort. At Dove Mountain, you can have that same gold standard in your staycation along with some amazing activities and dining. Go golfing, take a hike, or just enjoy the spa and food.
Living in the Tucson area, we can sometimes take the views and nature for granted. Luckily, your staycation can be at the Starr Pass resort and you can be reminded of the beauty all around us in Tucson. Though, if relaxation is more your style, the long list of services at Hashani Spa has your back…legs, feet, lips, face, eyes, hands and everything else… covered. Don’t forget to ask about the free 5pm Tequila Toast on the patio!
One of the best aspects of a staycation is the relaxation and carefree time you can spend over the weekend. La Paloma Resort knows that and takes advantage of that need by providing Westin Heavenly Bed and Baths. You don’t have to stay in bed, though, you can visit one or all of the 5 pools and 3 spas, 27 golf holes, the country club, or the AZul restaurant.
The El Conquistador specializes in golf and tennis amenities but there is so much more to this resort. Multiple restaurants from the lounge to the Epazote Kitchen and room service. Nearby, you can visit museums and even the Old Tucson Studios. Everyone knows the luxuries available when staying at a Hilton resort, but enjoying a Hilton while on a staycation in Tucson is even better.
Sometimes we need a new perspective on our surroundings, and that’s what you can get at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. A private walking trail that stretches for a half mile makes stargazing and nature walks a breeze. A Tucson resort would be nothing without pools and spas and here you can find two luxury pools. Enjoy a day of tennis or head to the fitness center for your health needs. Then just relax in the room, or poolside.
Looking for a resort like no other? Miraval has 118 casita-style luxury rooms and suites as well as private villas to just get away from everything without traveling too far. You can not only dine at the resort, you can also learn how to cook first class meals from the head chefs.
Getting the four diamond treatment is easy at the Omni Tucson National Resort. With multiple fitness centers, award-winning spas, two 18-hole golf courses, zero edge pool and so much more. The Omni Resort is the perfect place to spend a weekend. Just a warning… you may never want to leave.
