Tucson : Michelin's recommendations
Unlike Phoenix, which has conquered the desert with massive irrigation projects, Tucson embraces dry land. With little or no agriculture, the city has come to consider green lawns a waste of time and water. Most residents focus on enjoying the near-omnipresent sunshine: 350 days per year and high Sonoran Desert. Five mountain ranges surround the city that sprawls across 500sq mi and includes the University of Arizona.
