    Don't Miss! Things To Do in Saguaro National Park

    For many of us the Giant Saguaro cactus, silhouetted by the setting sun, is the universal symbol of the American West. And yet, these majestic plants are only found in a small portion of the United States. On the edge of the modern City of Tucson, Saguaro Park protects some of the most impressive forests of these sub-tropical giants, which can live for 200 years and grow to 50 feet tall.

    The park consists of two distinct sections—the Rincon Mountain District and the Tucson Mountain District. The area was proclaimed as Saguaro National Monument in 1933 by President Herbert Hoover, the Saguaro Wilderness Area of 71,400 acres was added in 1975. The area was re-designated as Saguaro National Park in 1994 and currently encompasses 91,327 acres.
