About Tucson, Arizona

Twelve thousand years ago, it was a Native American village by the name of "Stukshon." Loosely translated, it means, "springs from the foot of the black hill," and true to this vision Tucson is situated along the banks of the Santa Cruz River and bordered by both the Sonoran Desert and the Catalina Mountains—much of Tucson's allure is in its ancient land, heritage, and spirituality. It's a coveted lifestyle. For more information on Tucson, please visit www.visittucson.org.

Tucson enjoys more sunshine than any other city in the United States, about 350 days each year. The days, with very few exceptions are warm and sunny. Temperatures rise in the summer, but low humidity helps even the warmest days feel comfortable. June temperatures in Tucson range from highs in the low 100's to evening lows in the 70's.
