The Floating Stone Casitas are the only vacation rentals located directly in the village and one of the few remaining walkable towns in the US. Tubac is an artist village and from a historical point-of-view, one of the most important sites in the state of Arizona. While Native Americans have long inhabited this spectacularly beautiful river valley, the Spaniards first inhabited it in the mid 1700s followed by the missionaries. The silver miner, Charles Poston, established Tubac as the first capital for the state of Arizona in the mid 1850s. After a period of decline around the turn of the century, artists rediscovered the village in the mid 1960s and today Tubac is a mecca for art and history buffs, those wanting temporate, dry climate and visually stunning one for outside activities (hiking, golfing, birding, biking, plein-air painting, photography and more).
