Local Attractions

Climate

Sierra Vista is a community of nearly 40,000, sitting in a high valley or Mesa, surrounded by several mountain ranges, and located about 70 miles southeast of Tucson. Our altitude of over 4500 feet allows us to boast temperatures several degrees cooler than more well known Arizona cities like Tucson or Phoenix. Sierra Vista is a growing city , which provides most of the comforts of larger cities but preserves some of the small town, Old West flavor.

Location

Be sure to visit the museum, annex and cemetery at the U.S. Army's Fort Huachuca, headquarters for both Army Communications and Army Intelligence. Sierra Vista is located in Cochise County, conveniently near the towns of Bisbee and Tombstone (home of the legendary Wyatt Earp, the OK Corral and Boot Hill). The Mexican border lies 26 miles to the south and the newly opened Kartchner Caverns lies to the north.

Hiking and Camping

The U.S. Forest Service maintains National Forest areas in the Huachuca Mountains, which are great for hiking, as well as the Coronado National Monument and the San Pedro River Riparian Conservation Area. The Nature Conservancy maintains the Mile High Preserve in Ramsey Canyon immediately south of the Windemere Hotel.

This facility is world famous as perhaps the home to the greatest variety of Hummingbirds in North America. Of course horse back riding remains a popular pastime. The Cochise Stronghold, excellent for rock climbing, and the Wonderland of Rocks in the Chiricahua Mountains is an easy day trip from the hotel.

Golf

The Windemere Hotel and Conference Center is conveniently located near three local golf courses in order to accommodate those who wish to take advantage of the 360 annual days of fine golf weather here in Southeastern Arizona. Pueblo Del Sol, a championship quality course, is located in Country Club Estates, aproximatly a quarter mile from the hotel. This is a superior private facility with reasonable greens and cart fees. The Mountain View Golf course on Fort Huachuca is a challenging and beautiful course tucked against the mountains on Fort Huachuca. Lastly, Turquoise Valley is a small course near the Mexican border between historic Bisbee and Naco, Mexico. All three of these courses are a delight to play and are within easy driving distance from the Windemere. Our Front Desk staff is more than willing to assist you with your golf arrangements. Southern Arizona offers excellent golf opportunities in addition to those near the hotel.
