Those who rent apartments in the Tuscon area have little trouble keeping busy and entertained. The University of Arizona and the technology companies that surround and support the U.S. Army Intelligence Center provide many of the jobs held by residents living in the region. In addition, a stroll through the city streets will take "urban hikers" past a number of theaters, restaurants, clubs and other hot spots that Arizonans populate during their free time. But for a more traditional hike, and the scenery it provides, many choose to head to Catalina, or rent an apartment in Catalina for easy access to the beautiful views.
The Tuscon suburb is located a short drive away from the big city, but only a stone's throw from the stunning vistas of the Saguaro National Park. Those who rent Catalina apartments have the very best scenes of the Southwest right in their backyards. The dusty, cactus-lined trails in the park and the brush-covered mountains are the sights that many people think of when they hear the word Arizona. By living next to this 91,000-acre area of protected wilderness, residents in Catalina apartments are bound to find their favorite spots, while still having more to explore.
Visitors can enjoy 150 miles of hiking trails, on which they can snap photos of the sagurao cactus, as well as the barrel, cholla and prickly pear cactus. As a bonus, those renting apartments in Catalina may catch a glimpse of the Lesser Long-nosed Bat - an endangered species that lives in the park for part of the year.
