Arizona’s oldest and second largest city is known for its beautiful scenery, its rich culture, and, with an average of 360 sunny days a year, its incomparable climate. The natural beauty of Tucson’s surroundings is created by the five minor mountain ranges bordering the city, as well as the high Sonoran desert, a geography which, along with the ideal temperatures, makes “The Old Pueblo” one of the nation’s most popular resort destinations. Boasting the southernmost ski destination and ample opportunities for biking, hiking, and camping, even the infamous bank robber, John Dillinger, chose to vacation there between heists. However, this desert city is so much more than a great place for golf… it’s a great place for Among Tucson’s many attractions, the Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block (which takes up an entire city block in historic downtown) maintains an expansive permanent collection, including an impressive exhibition of works devoted to the American West. Additionally, the Arizona State Museum, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, De Grazia Gallery in the Sun, and the Center for Creative Photography are all highlights among Tucson’s long list of museums. Tucson’s rich blend of Mexican, Native American, and Spanish influences is evident in its eclectic architecture, as well as its countless galleries and cultural events that create a warm, small town feel in the heart of a thriving metropolis. Annual festivals celebrating both the local cultures and the arts includes Art Safari, Tubac Festival of the Arts, Southwest Indian Art Fair, Spring Artisans Market, Oro Valley Festival of the Arts, and Summer Art Cruise to name many. The city of Tucson will always be a popular vacation spot, but as the city grows with an average of 2,000 new citizens a month, it is clear that more and more people are choosing to stay.
