Families looking for a unique holiday this summer will love nature’s playground at Loews Ventana Canyon in Tucson, Arizona. With plenty of kid-friendly activities, the beautiful Catalina Mountains as its backdrop and exciting wildlife walks, there’s something here for every family member.
Children from ages 4-12 can have an exciting week with the help of Coyote Kids Club. Either in the morning or the afternoon, little explorers can run around the Window Walk Nature Trail feeding ducks and koi or take part in a Photo Safari, where each child is given a camera to explore the grounds and have their photos made into a keepsake book, to be mailed to their homes after their visit.
Meanwhile, parents can relax at the hotel’s spa with its unusual treatments such as the Sedona Sacred Clay Energy Restorer Ritual – a meditation treatment that heightens all the senses and ends with a salt body polish and detoxifying clay body lotion. After their time apart families will relish an afternoon at the 3,000 square feet swimming pool, surrounded by stunning Tucson landscapes, as well as lighted playgrounds and tennis courts for even more adventurous fun.
Golf enthusiast parents will enjoy the Tom Fazio-designed 18 hole golf course that winds its way through the canyons of the Catalina Mountains, giving them a unique sporting experience with unforgettable views. Meanwhile, the kids can get back to exploring at the nearby Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum – a hands-on safari experience that lets visitors get up close and personal with the native wildlife, including majestic mountain lions and prairie dogs. End the day with a complimentary star gazing experience every Wednesday and Saturday evening poolside. Guests can spot the North Star and trace constellations with the help of astronomy professionals and the resort’s very own telescope – at Loews Ventana Canyon, the sky’s the limit.
Loews Ventana Canyon also offers an abundance of family-friendly restaurants; including the Flying V Bar & Grill with its Southwestern steaks and views of the mountains and city lights, or Bill’s Grills burgers and wraps that will satisfy even the fussiest of little eaters. With the Sprout Dream Stay Package, children under 5 can eat for free at the hotel’s restaurants, and will receive a Dream Stay welcome package full of gifts from Sprout, a fun American television network for preschool children.
Named as one of the World’s Best Family Travel hotels by Travel & Leisure Magazine, Loews Ventana Canyon is a uniquely Arizona experience families won’t want to miss.
