Shopping in Tubac
Spend the day wandering Tubac's famed local shops and historic outdoor displays.
The village of Tubac is one of the top ten small art towns in the United States. Surrounded by dramatic high desert vistas, Tubac is lovely in the winter and enjoys notably cooler temperatures in the summer compared to Phoenix and Tucson. A full day can easily disappear wandering amongst this wealth of painting, sculpture, ceramics and photography, as well as unique regional fashion, leather, crafts, antiques and jewelry.
The Tubac Center of the Arts, commanding the main intersection in the village, offers a full range of arts programming and seasonal exhibits that are not to be missed. Several locally owned restaurants and bars offer outstanding fare for breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails. Our comfortable B&Bs and luxurious golf resort mean that you have many options to stay another day!
Established in 1752 as a Spanish Presidio (fort), Tubac now hosts working artists whose studios surround the former parade grounds. The village remembers this colorful history well at the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park, located in Old Town, where outdoor displays and an excellent museum bring it all to life. No visit to Tubac is complete without a stop at this, Arizona’s First State Park.
