Historic Tubac

Although Native Americans occupied the area for thousands of years before the Spanish arrived, the town of Tubac traces its origin to the establishment of the Presidio at Tubac in 1752. Make sure if you come to this area you stop to see the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park, which is Arizona's first state park.
