What makes Tucson a special place?

 

Tucson is truly a city with personality, heart and soul - all accompanied with a blended mixture of sounds and rhythms. While its roots go back to the beginning of recorded history, Tucson has a young, dynamic population and is just large enough to offer the perks of a big city and small enough to be friendly and welcoming!

 

Located in the Southwest United States, Tucson is set in a Sonoran Desert valley surrounded by five mountain ranges. Boasting an average 350 sunny days a year and warm dry air, Tucson’s climate is ideal for year-round outdoor recreation.

 

Now one of the top twenty research universities in the nation, the University of Arizona was established in Tucson in 1885. In areas as diverse as astronomy, medicine, optics, entrepreneurship, and dance, UA faculty and programs are among the nation's best. Tucsonans proudly support the UA's Wildcat teams that compete in NCAA Division I and PAC – 12 Conference athletics and have won many championships.
