Tubac, Arizona makes list of up-and-coming ‘charming towns’
PHOENIX — A small town in southern Arizona called Tubac appeared in Travel + Leisure’s list of the 10 best towns in America that “aren’t famous yet.”
The town has a population of about 1,200 and is known for its arts and culture.
“This frontier village and artists’ colony attracts transplants from Los Angeles with its traditional pottery shops, well-preserved Spanish fortress, and beautiful nature trails,” the travel publication wrote. “At night, locals congregate over prickly pear margaritas at The Goods, a much-loved canteen.”
As Travel + Leisure noted, Tubac is less than an hour south of Tucson. It straddles Interstate 19 and is approximately two and a half hours from Phoenix by car.
According to the city’s website, the town boasts art festivals, a full-service resort, a museum and more.
Other towns on Travel + Leisure’s list include High Falls, New York; Salida, Colorado and McCloud, California.
