Arizona's potential as a vacation destination as well as one for

Phoenix and Tucson are the prime areas for this development. In
Phoenix and the Valley of the Sun, some 16 resorts and hotels are
opening or underway, and the new facilities have spurred existing
hotels to mod'ernize, said a spokeswoman at the Phoenix & Valley of
the Sun Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Destination resorts are opening in the Tucson area, and that
means it will be more atlractive to meeting and convention groups--
which can add to Tucson's shoulder season business said a
spokeswoman at the bureau.
