There are a number of cities around the U.S. that everybody can recognize by name and about which many have already formed an opinion. But Tuscon
, Arizona, may not fall into that category, and residents who have rented apartments in the area are just now finding out everything Arizona's second largest city can offer. To many, the word "city," conjures thoughts of subway trains, traffic, crowds and concrete. On the contrary, one of Tuscon's most distinguishing features is its natural views. The city sits in a bowl of mountains that are picketed by various cactus plants and twiggy shrubs that give the whole area a rustic feel. Because there seems to be nature on every side of the city, many have chosen to live in neighboring communities, such as apartments in San Manuel, to get closer to the natural beauty.
Those who rent San Manuel apartments are given a number of options if they're looking for a good hike of a breathtaking view. The Galluro Mountains, Butterfly Peak Natural Area and the Oracle State Park are all nearby attractions. Oracle State Park is a favorite spot for hikers, cyclists and horseback riders who have San Manuel apartments, who can use more than 15 sets of trails, according to the park's website, to get some exercise and the perfect view.
In addition, the Kannally family cattle ranch, an old-fashioned Mediterranean style house that is on the National Register of Historic Places, sits within the park, within easy reach of San Manuel apartments.
