In 1775, Don Hugo O'Connor created the Presidio of Tucson, which became part of the United States in in 1853. Today, this cultural melting pot holds nearly one million European, Native American, Mexican, and Asian residents within its metropolitan area.

The nearly 60-mile round-trip byway boasts stunning desert and forest landscapes. Besides the region’s grand scenery, there are other great sites to see.
