The Perfect Weekend Getaway
Spring break has come and gone (for those lucky enough to have one) and summer is still over a month away. Can’t quite make it these last few weeks without some more time off? Tubac Golf Resort & Spa in southern Arizona is the perfect place for that quick weekend getaway with your girlfriends or hubby!
Just 45 minutes south of Tucson, Tubac Golf Resort & Spa is located on Otero Ranch in the beautiful Santa Cruz River Valley. A member of Historic Hotels of America, Tubac offers guests a 27-hole championship golf course ("Tin Cup" was filmed there), hacienda-style spa and salon, and recently renovated rooms and suites.
The hotel is often a hot spot for weddings, as evidenced by its selection as winner for 2011 Best of Weddings by The Knot. Tubac is surrounded by mountains, lakes, and jogging trails, with various outdoor activities nearby such as mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, birdwatching, cave exploring, etc.
The hotel is constantly running numerous promotions like the "Indulge Yourself Golf Package" and the "Girlfriend Getaway." There are also many restaurants, galleries, boutique shops, and wineries close by. Tubac is pet-friendly and does offer babysitting for those parents who wish to relax in the spa and golf at the same time! It is the ideal vacation spot for anyone wanting to unwind and take part in some calming but fun activities.
Near the hotel is a great event coming up at the end of April that would really be the finishing touch on your weekend retreat! Sonoita Vineyards was the first winery of the region and its owner was revolutionary in starting the Arizona wine industry. The 33rd Annual Blessing of Sonoita Vineyards Festival will take place Saturday, April 30 from 10am to 4pm. The blessing is at noon. The event will include wine tastings, food and wine pairings, vineyard and winery tours with the winemaker, wagon rides, and souvenir glasses and key rings. The cost is $15 per person.
Sonoita Vineyards is 45 minutes east of Tubac Golf Resort & Spa. Tubac has box lunches available upon request, or food can be purchased at the event.
