After serving as a colonial outpost under the Spanish
and Mexicans, and then as territorial capital for both the US and
Confederate governments, TUCSON (pronounced TOO-sonn ) a mere sixty
miles north of Mexico on the cross-country I-10 has grown into a modern
mini-metropolis of nearly a million people without entirely sacrificing
its historic quarters. It suffers from the same Sunbelt sprawl as
Albuquerque and Phoenix, it does have a wanderable center, some enjoyable
restaurants and a pretty good nightlife, energized by the 35,000 students
at the University of Arizona.
