The drive to Tucson from Phoenix is 90 minutes or so on I-10, where you’ll find the attractions below. For a slightly meandering alternative, take Ariz. 60 east past Apache Junction to Ariz. 79 south. You’ll have an hour or two of undeveloped desert vistas on the way to Tucson; you can stop in Florence, which has a historical downtown, and pay your respects at the death marker of Tom Mix, the Western star of the silent movie era, who lost his life in a car accident there in 1940. (That’s 17 miles south of Florence on Ariz.79.)
