Looking for events, attractions, and other things to do in Southern Arizona? Places to eat? Places to sleep?

Here’s what they say about running in the Old Pueblo:
Nearly all Tucson’s bicycling routes and mountain biking trails are also well-suited for running. Get going on The Loop car-free, multi-use path with 131 miles of meandering vistas alongside a broad riverbed. Or aim for Sabino Canyon Recreation Area, where your eight-mile roundtrip run on a paved roadway closed to vehicles passes through scenic desert and riparian landscapes. Then there’s the cactus-laced, eight-mile paved Cactus Forest Scenic Loop Drive in Saguaro National Park’s Rincon (East) District. With pine-topped mountains as the soaring backdrop, this ultra-scenic drive is narrow with many tight turns and steep hills.
