We love Summer in Tucson because everything in general is calmer and more relaxed.
Less traffic ~ The absence of our winter tourists, who of course we love, quiets the byways of our town considerably.
No crowds to fight at our favorite restaurants ~ For the same reason. All businesses are happy to see customers during the summer months in Tucson. It’s a perfect time to experience the many new eateries calling Downtown Tucson home.
Mount Lemmon ~ At 92,000 feet, the highest peak in the Catalina Mountains. The beginning of the Catalina Highway which takes you there is just a 15 minute drive from El Rancho Merlita. Hike in the tall cool pines. Enjoy lunch in the village of Summerhaven. Ride the lift at Ski Valley. Gaze at the stars from The University of Az’s Sky Center.
The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum’s Cool Summer Nights program.
The Ranch House front porch is the perfect place to watch the Monsoon storms roll in. The Monsoon is our summer rainy season. Typically it begins in early July and can last until mid-September, bringing the possibility of rain every day. The storms usually occur in the afternoons or early evening and are accompanied by plenty of wind, thunder and lightning. They move around the valley swiftly and don’t last very long. Once a monsoon rain has fallen around you the air is cooled and refreshed.
Our salt water swimming pool temperature is PERFECT ~ 83 degrees.
