About Tucson

Boasting an average of 350 sunny days a year and warm dry air, Tucson's climate is ideal for year-round outdoor recreation, with winter temperatures reaching average highs of 64-75°F. Summer days are often hot with low humidity-great for indoor activities like museums, art galleries, and shopping or relaxing indoor or poolside at one of the area's world-famous spas or resorts.

Cool mornings and evenings and long twilights throughout summer are great for cookouts, patio dining, and activities like hiking and horseback riding, and early and later tee times are available at reduced summer prices.

The second-largest city in Arizona and the county seat of Pima County, Tucson neighbors the towns of Marana, Oro Valley, Catalina, South Tucson (an independent municipality in the heart of the city), Sahuarita, Vail, and Green Valley.

Tucson is home to the University of Arizona-established as Arizona's first university in 1885 and now a campus of 50,000 students and staff from around the world-and a number of annual events drawing participants and spectators from around the world, including the Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase, La Fiesta de los Vaqueros (Tucson Rodeo), Tucson Festival of Books, Tucson International Mariachi Conference, the El Tour bike race, and the Tucson Classic.

Tucson, Arizona, grew out of the dangers, opportunities and cultural crossings of the Old West. Today, that heritage shapes us without limiting who we are: a destination for nearly 7 million visitors a year; a place known for outstanding hiking and outdoor adventures, rich cultural traditions, a vibrant arts scene, world-class golf and great dining; and a thriving desert home to more than 1 million residents.
