About Tucson, Arizona

Arizona is the largest state in the American Southwest, and is one of the fastest-growing states in the entire US. Although most famous as the home of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Arizona is also home to some of the most varied and interesting scenery in the entire Southwest. As the second-largest city in Arizona, Tucson is a modern, rapidly-growing metropolis of nearly a million people. Located in Southern Arizona, approximately 120 miles south of Phoenix and 60 miles north of the Mexican border at Nogales, Tucson has ample intellectual and cultural resources within easy reach (including a symphony orchestra, ballet and opera companies, and extensive on-campus cultural facilities). Moreover, Tucson is surrounded by 9000-foot mountain peaks, several canyons, extensive hiking and biking trails, two National Parks, numerous golf courses, and a desert of incredible richness and beauty, with 30-foot high Saguaro cacti in abundance. For nine months of the year, our weather is perpetual springtime, with average daily high temperatures of 65 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter. Even in summer, the air is dry and comfortable. The Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, the Gulf of California beaches, and the whole of Southern California are also within an easy half-day drive. With an average of over 350 sunny days per year, and with countless recreational activities amidst palm trees and perpetually blue skies, Tucson's location is truly ideal.
