U.S. News and World Report's travel site has placed Tucson ninth in its list of the 13 best weekend getaways.
The site names Saguaro National Park hiking trails, golf courses in the Catalina Foothills, museums and the University of Arizona campus as a few of the reasons.
Sedona made the list in second place, partly for its great views and options for easy or more strenuous outdoor activities.
Charleston, S.C., placed first.
