The west side is generally defined as the area west of I-10 and I-19. It is a combination of urban and suburban development. You will find the International Wildlife Museum, Sentinel Peak, and the Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa. Moving into the Tucson Mountains, travelers find themselves in the area shared by Saguaro National Park West, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, and the Old Tucson Studios movie set/theme park.
