Things to Do

Summer time in the Sonoran desert is an exciting contrast of blazing hot days, and perfectly cool nights.

If you’re a morning person, then outdoor recreation is always an option, as mornings in the desert are perfect for hiking, running, cycling and golf. So if you’d like to lace up and hit the trails, get an early start and check out the trail system at Catalina State Park. Additionally, the Town of Oro Valley has more than 50 miles of trails and paths set against the majestic Santa Catalina Mountains. Want to learn more about our trails? Click here.

When the sun goes down, so do the temperatures. There’s no better place for cocktails and dinner on the patio with a sunset view of the majestic Catalina Mountains. You can see a list of all Oro Valley restaurants by cuisine here, search for restaurants on the Business Navigator or visit an OV Original.

Whatever your tastes, Oro Valley has what you’re looking for. Find out what’s happening when you’re in town by visiting our online calendar. See you soon!
