Travel Information

What is today a bustling urban center of nearly a million residents and one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the United States, Tucson is also the oldest continuously inhabited settlement in North America, with traces of centuries-old Hohokam communities still visible in petroglyphs throughout the region.

Set in the lush Sonoran Desert only 65 miles from Mexico and surrounded by mountains, forests, monuments, and national parks, this unique environment is famous for mild winters, stunning sunsets, outdoor adventures and a multicultural population that reflects the rich diversity of the Southwest.
