Location & Lifestyle
Tucson is located in Southern Arizona, in the Sonoran Desert (about 115 miles from Phoenix, AZ). Compared to many other cities in the US, Tucson has a relatively affordable cost of living. Housing costs, in particular, are often lower than in major metro areas. There is also a growing food scene! You can find a wide range of dining options, from traditional Mexican food to innovative modern dishes. Tucson enjoys approximately 300 days of sunshine each year, making it a paradise for those who love sunny weather. Mild winters and warm, dry summers make it a great place to enjoy outdoor activities year-round!
