Best Recreation Area in Southern Arizona

Sabino Canyon

Readers Pick

A good, stiff 1960s-style cocktail is often followed by a water chaser. The water is what goes down smoothly at Sabino Canyon. Find yourself in the soul-quenching abundance of it during the monsoon season. Enjoy the cool carving of Sabino's stream, and the way it pools up generously behind a manmade dam, or flows beneath your feet as you walk over sometimes-shady bridges to one of the 89 picnic sites. It's the water that provides the lush flora with its life-giving refreshment. Take your shoes off, and let your city feet drink it all in.
