Since the late 19th century, travelers have come to Tucson to find health, rest, and a new lease on life. Those who suffered from TB and other chest ailments came here in droves over the years, sent to the desert by their doctors for the supposed cure provided by the dry air.

The first big hotels in Tucson, then, were tent cities thrown up in the streets to house the constant stream of hacking patients. Later, the business community got together and started marketing the sunshine and easy living in the Southwest, and Tucson became what it is today–a world-renowned spa destination and seasonless desert playground for those outrunning the snow and ice. And so the Tucson resorts and the hotels and the dude ranches and motor courts began to proliferate, as they still do today.
