Summerfest Cocktail with SelvaRey Rum

Loews Ventana Canyon Resort captures the favors of summer with a uniquely-created cocktail in partnership with Bruno Mars’ award-winning SelvaRey Rum. Offering a Tucson-spin, Loews Ventana Canyon Resort’s signature “Summerfest Cocktail,” pairs SelvaRey white rum with locally-sourced prickly pear to create a Sonoran Daiquiri.

Destination-Driven Craft Mocktails

For a refreshing non-alcoholic alternative, Loews Ventana Canyon Resort’s mixology team crafted equally visually-aesthetic mocktails.

Summerfest Cultural Safari

Designed as a self-guided tour to discover Tucson’s gems, the Summerfest Cultural Safari includes everything from destination landmarks to distinctive southwest art, family-owned businesses and stargazing. With something for everyone, the Summerfest Cultural Safari is within a short radius from Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. Here are the resort’s recommendations…

DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun Museum | 6300 N Swan Rd.

This nationally-recognized historic location features immersive southwest art that traces more than fifty years of the evolving symbolism and abstraction of the traditional Mexican sombrero in the artwork of Ted DeGrazia.

Eegee’s | Multiple Locations

Founded in Tucson, Eegee’s is a popular restaurant scattered across Arizona. While their subs and crinkle-cut fries with house ranch are popular, the Eegee is a must for Tucsonans. An Eegee is a frozen drink, typically made with fruit.

Sabino Canyon | 5700 N. Sabino Canyon

Sabino Canyon is the go-to location recreational area for locals and tourists alike! The canyon is located at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains, and it features steep rock cliffs and a unique desert vegetation adjacent to riparian corridors. Keep your eyes open for gila monsters, bobcats, Gambel’s quail and more.

Mount Lemmon | 12856 N Sabino Canyon

On Mount Lemmon, cacti are replaced with pine trees and the triple digits turn into 75-degree days. The scenic byway alone is worth experiencing, with a quick stop at Windy Point. Once you reach Summerhaven, enjoy a ride with Mount Lemmon Scooters then grab some fudge from the Mt. Lemmon General Store. Just down the street is another popular spot, the Mt. Lemmon Cookie Cabin. In the evening, enjoy stargazing and astronomy events at the Mt. Lemmon Sky Center.
