With our next two posts we are trying to answer a question we get a lot here: which district of the park is the best?
Our West District (Tucson Mountains) has the most dense saguaro forests, beautiful red rocks, and some pretty amazing sunsets overlooking the Sonoran Desert landscape. But what about our East District? Check out our next post!

Hope to visit either side some day 🙂!

I’m biased, since I live down the road from West side. Love the Visitor Center, staff, hiking trails, wildlife, and view !

Both are amazing 😍!! I miss so much my time at saguaro NP!!

East Side! Glad to see they are building an educational patio.

My Facebook cover photo is the Eastside ❤️...but I do love both!

I miss Tucson so bad.. can't wait to become a snowbird there!!

Both are beautiful but the East side has my vote! Can’t wait to go back in 3 weeks!

East was always my favorite. Running trails galore

All of those saguaros! 🌵🌵🌵🌵

I definitely have a fave ❤️

West side is my favorite.

Been to both sides and loved them both..! I’d have to call it a tie..!! 🤷🏻‍♂️ Lol 😂

East!

West.

Is this a question in order to relinquish one from protection? 🤔

West is best

Not going to lie...I have a favorite side!

I throw my arms up in the air sometimes…Saying ayeoh, I’m a saguaro.

Did you know the average saguaro ("sah-wah-ro" or "suh-wah-ro.") is about 30 ft tall? Arms usually begin to grow after it’s about 15 ft tall and around 75 years old.

There are plenty of myths circling around Gila Monsters. They don't spit venom or sting with their tongue. Although, it is true that their tongues are black! Since Gila monsters don't have good eyesight, they use their tongue to track prey by tasting scent particles in the air.
