"South of the Border" Tucson Things to Do Tip by jmcleary

Tucson Things to Do: 365 reviews and 835 photos

Nogales, Mexico is about an hour's drive. It's all flat highway and the speed limit is 75. Listen to one of the country stations on the radio on the way to the border. Park your car on the U.S. side and walk on in. It's a little mountain town and very touristy but fun. Have a cerveza and buy a throw blanket to take home. We've used ours every day for years.
