Green Valley vacation rentals

Natural grandeur in Arizona

Nestled in the valley carved by the Santa Cruz River, Green Valley is 20 miles from bustling Tucson, and was for a long time seen as a mere retirement community. Now, though, the word is out, and Green Valley is attracting visitors in search of rest and relaxation, not to mention some of the finest golfing in Arizona. Nature lovers also relish nearby Madera Canyon, famed for its native birds, while the nearby artists’ colony of Tubac boasts fascinating galleries and studios galore, making it a culture-crammed counterpoint to laid-back Green Valley.

A swinging time in Green Valley

Once you’ve settled into your Green Valley vacation rental, the next stop may well be a golf course. Green Valley is one of the golfing capitals of the United States, with more places to show off your swing than you can shake a club at. Here, you’ll be playing amid lazy palms and eucalyptus trees, with a jagged mountain horizon providing an atmospheric backdrop. Come sunset, you’ll feel transported by the hazy, dream-like colors. After taking in the natural beauty, you can head to an all-natural spa and treat yourself to a stress-melting massage or hot stone therapy.

Back in time in Green Valley

While it may be tempting to spend your whole time here simply relaxing, enjoying your Green Valley vacation rental, or playing golf, there’s also a fascinating attraction for history buffs. This is the Titan Missile Museum, an eerie and perfectly preserved lair from the Cold War. Here, you will step back in time to explore the underground silo and missile, which was once poised to unleash nuclear Armageddon at a moment’s notice. You can enter the launch duct, stand right beneath the awesome missile, and feel the thrill of proximity to what was once a top secret military complex.

Sun-soaked pleasure in Green Valley

If you’re susceptible to cold, then you’ll love Green Valley. The desert climate means it’s warm here even in winter, which explains why the region is particularly buzzing with visitors during the colder months, as vacationers arrive to escape the snow elsewhere. Meanwhile, local temperatures will soar sky-high as the summer months come around. Don’t worry, though – even if you book your Green Valley vacation rental in July, you can look forward to balmy evenings sipping cool drinks outdoors. Dining al fresco is a great way to take advantage of the warm climate, with succulent meats always sizzling on the garden grills.

Heading out to explore Green Valley

Don’t just look out at the Santa Rita Mountains when visiting Green Valley. Get out there and explore these picturesque formations for yourself. Running through the Coronado National Forest, the mountains are a hiker’s paradise, while bird-watchers will relish the section called Madera Canyon, which over 15 species of hummingbirds call home. You can also keep an eye out for exotic locals like sulphur-bellied flycatchers and flame-colored tanagers. Serious outdoors explorers will want to hike up the Old Baldy Trail to take in the sweeping views at the top of Mount Wrightson, the highest peak in the Santa Ritas.
