This former mining town, about 40 miles north of Tucson, has rapidly become another destination for art tourists. It's not a complete art colony like Tubac, but you'll find several shops along the main road featuring the work of local artisans, and there are more interesting things to do and see there than first meets the eye. Some of these interesting things include Columbia University's Biosphere 2, Peppersauce Canyon, the Arcadia Ranch Museum for local artifacts plus several Mexican restaurants. This town is definitely worth a trip. Take Oracle Road north to the fork at Oracle Junction, then turn right on AZ Highway 77.
