Going to be in Tucson, AZ area for two weeks in Feb. From what I could find, the nearest TLM is 2.5 hours away, so that’s probably not going to happen. Is anyone familiar with the general area & have a church to recommend?

A friend of mine used to live in Tucson and attended the TLM at Saint Gianna Oratory of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.  According to their website, the Mass is celebrated at Holy Family Church.  Do a google search for the Institute and you can find all the info there.
As LJMarie says, there's St. Gianna's Oratory.  There is also St. Melany's Byzantine Church in Tucson which has a daily Divine Liturgy.  There's also San Martín de Porres in Sahuarita, which is a regular parish but which has a good priest.
You gotta go to San Xavier del Bac, for a visit, not necessarily for the Mass. It's a jewel dropped into the desert. Gorgeous:

     Mission San Xavier del Bac
     1950 W. San Xavier Road

Thank you very much!

We’ve been there, & it’s incredible! There have been some changes to it since we were there 10 years ago, so hopefully we’ll be able to fit in going again.
