Marana- one of the fastest growing Arizona communities
Winter and spring are without a doubt the best months to enjoy Marana's picturesque corner of the Sonoran Desert. The mild daytime temperatures beckon adventurers to explore the great outdoors, and when the thermometer starts to drop in the evening, it's just chilly enough to enjoy a cup of hot cocoa during an evening stroll under the stars.
Fortunately for all of us, there are plenty of ways to take advantage of winter in the desert. The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Dove Mountain will help you discover serenity with their therapeutic massages that draw on the practices of the ancient Hohokam who once settled these mountains. Refreshed and renewed, hit the links at the Golf Club at Dove Mountain, the Highlands, or the Quarry Pines. Each of these courses offers its own unique features that will challenge golfers of all ability levels.

In just a few short weeks, we'll start to see wildflowers blanketing our mountainsides, the product of the drenching winter rains that themselves are an attraction in our arid environment.
