The Guardian newspaper in London included Tucson in its list of six cool U.S. cities worth visiting outside of Los Angeles and New York.

In an article last Friday, the paper wrote that "Summers here are fiercely hot ... but winters are mild ... and spring – which begins in February – is a wonderful time to visit."

Events cited included the Fiesta de los Vaqueros rodeo and parade in February, Summerhaven on Mount Lemmon, Saguaro National Park, Fox Tucson Theatre and Kartchner Caverns state park.

Also on the Guardian's list: Lewisburg, W.Va.; Portland, Maine; San Luis Obispo, Calif.; Great Barrington, Mass.; and Detroit, Mich.
