Tucson Heats Up In February As The Golf Villas Attract Visitors To Many Local Events

{flickr|100|campaign} It’s February and the Tucson area of Arizona is once again alive with a variety of events that are sure to please a wide range of visitors. One of the most noted events of the region each year is the annual Tucson Gem, Mineral, & Fossil Showcase. Affectionately dubbed “the world’s largest treasure hunt”, the show runs until the 13th, and attendees can visit more than forty unique sites around the city, taking part in dozens of different shows.

These shows truly offer something for everyone! From prime exhibits of dinosaur fossils to glass beads, granite bookends to fine gold and diamonds, and even gems that have been dug and brought for display all the way from the Australian Outback, there is plenty of interest and intrigue.

The Tucson Gem and Mineral show is completely open to the public, and showcases displays from a variety of private collections, museums, and more than two hundred and fifty retailers of minerals, jewelry, gemstones, and fossils. There are also plenty of exhibits that offer a hands-on experience for children. Most of the shows located around Tucson are free of charge.

Another popular event in the Tucson area is the Accenture Match Play Championship that will take place between February 23rd and 27th. This tournament will be held at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, Dove Mountain, located in Marana, Arizona. As usual, the event is scheduled to draw a great crowd and features the top 64 players in the world, all battling for the prestigious Walter Hagen Cup.

To make a visit to the area even more special, the Golf Villas provide an experience like no other. Located right on the golf course, yet close to Catalina State Park, the villas are a short trip to downtown goings on, as well as hiking trails.

Right now, visitors to the villas who stay 31 nights with the platinum package can receive reduced rates on golf at the Hilton El Conquistador golf course. With all of the great events, natural beauty, and this exceptional offer, there has never been a better time to experience Tucson.
