in Tucson

Though Tucson is the second largest city in Arizona, it maintains its chill university town vibe, and is beloved for its off-beat culture. Set between the wild, open desert of Saguaro National Park, this relaxed city is the ideal place to escape fast-paced city life, but still easily access dynamic nightlife, well-executed cuisine, and hip vintage finds.

The inspiring landscape is the ultimate attraction, however, so grab the keys to a Tucson airport car rental and make your way to all of the unique Tucson highlights in and out of town.

Tucson favorites

Stir up some dust and excitement as you tour town in your <a href="/ca/en/car-rental/united-states">Tucson car rental</a>.

Saguaro National Park

To the east and west of Tucson, this National Park is strewn with trails over mesas, through beautiful desert shrubs, and alongside iconic saguaro cacti.

Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures

Because the allure of tiny objects is inexplicably strong, don’t miss this rather large collection of whimsical miniatures, including a mini showcase on the history of miniatures.

Old Tucson

Travel back in time to John Wayne’s Wild West with a visit to these Hollywood studios, where hundreds of movies have been shot, and you can still be entertained in an old-timey saloon.

Kartchner Caverns State Park

Skip south 50 miles in your Tucson car rental to marvel at these limestone caverns, home to the world’s longest soda straw stalactite and a roost for baby bats.

At 9,000 feet above sea level in the Santa Catalina Mountains, nose your Tucson car rental up this peak for cooler temperatures in summer, and exhilarating ski slopes in the winter.

This was a perfect rental for my little family and I. The car fits carseats (2) despite being a smaller vehicle. The gas mileage is killer as you'd expect. A/C works well, and the manual transmission is super forgiving and easy. Overall clean, awesome rental. 10/10 would rent again. James was super considerate, flexible, and polite. He let me pick up the car 3 hours early and was great about letting me extend my rental. I dropped the car off about 30 mins late too and he was polite and told me it was no sweat. Super professional and cool guy! Thanks for making my first Turo rental awesome James. I'll definitely be back.

Harry was also very kind to walk us through the tricks and trades of teslas and even showed us his Model X, for we are in the market for one. I would 10/10 recommend Harry to anyone looking to rent a Tesla.

The car was clean, ran great, and Harry room extra time to walk me through all of the nuances of an EV. If you’re in the market for a Tesla, you should definitely take one of Harry’s for a day or two. He’s is extremely knowledgeable in all things Tesla!

Best Tucson driving roads

Catalina Scenic Byway

Featuring three epic switchbacks, a bold 2,000-foot climb in 24 miles, and the added bonus of seemingly endless vistas, you and your Tucson car rental have nothing to lose.

Anyone who loves to drive won’t be able to resist the endless curves on The Devil’s Highway. Take your Tucson car rental to Clifton to ride this wave from desert floor to mountain peak.

Salt River Canyon

Take US-60 from Apache Junction to Show Low to let the engine on your Tucson car rental purr. You’ll encounter stacks of twists as you ribbon uphill and then dive down into the canyon.
