The Legend of Starr Pass (continued)

By working together with the University of Arizona, neighborhood communities and many local environmental groups, natural wildlife corridors now connect the desert lab and the Tucson Mountain park will extend this study through Starr Pass. This is the ecological way of creating a real estate development.

Starr Pass is dedicated to reach out and continue to honor those who have come before and will make every effort to ensure animals, plants, and humans can live together in harmony into the future.

Today the Environmental Master Plan real estate community of Starr Pass is the home of the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort and Spa, 27 holes of Arnold Palmer Signature Golf and embraced by the Tucson Mountain Park with miles of natural hiking and biking trails.

Starr Pass is surrounded by the peaceful setting of nature yet moments away from: The cultural center of downtown with the new street car development, multiple famous and locally owned restaurants, shopping, hospitals and farmers markets. The list includes the University of Arizona, Pima College, the international airport and Interstate I 10.

Within a 30 minute drive you can visit the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum, Old Tucson, Kitt Peak, Pima Air Museum, San Xavier de Back, Ft. Lowell and other Tucson historical sites, Reid Park and the zoo.

An hour or a little longer you will arrive at the historic art colony of Tubac, or Nogales Mexico, or to the North the city of Phoenix. Also nearby is Karchner Caves. And let us not forget that in less than two hours you will arrive in the real southwest towns of Tombstone and Bisbee – where the west is still the west. Reenactments of gunfights daily and wild saloons.

All these actives are within reach; however when you return to Starr Pass you are surrounded by the quality of nature and the peaceful sounds and sights of Starr Pass, as well as refreshments available at the Salud Lounge and a toast to Poncho Villa.
