The Area

Tucson is a vibrant and diverse community that combines rich history with modern living. Here in the beautiful Sonoran Desert you are surrounded by mountains, and each spring you’ll be dazzled by a landscape in full bloom. You can explore ancient Native American archaeological sites in the morning, and then enjoy the Best 23 Miles of Mexican Food at night.

The city of Tucson is the perfect mix of past, present, and future. And thanks to our ideal weather, you can enjoy year-round hiking, horseback riding, golfing, shopping and dining – let alone some of the most breathtaking sunsets in the West. Whatever your interests, Tucson is a great place to live, work, and play.
