10 Reasons to Move to Southern Arizona (Tucson)
What’s the appeal behind southern Arizona, and why is it such a popular place to live and work? We have the scoop on all things special about Tucson, and it’s surrounding community. Here are our top ten reasons we think southern Arizona might be your next favorite dot on the map.
1. Saguaro National Park
Over 90 thousand acres of giant, saguaro cactus make this protected park a hot spot for visitors and locals alike, especially in fall and spring, when temperatures are more moderate. Stunning sunsets and miles of hiking trails await in this whimsical place.
2. Pima Air & Space Museum
Maybe you’ve visited airplane museums in the past, but never one like this. One of the largest in the world, the Pima Air & Space Museum houses historic American and foreign planes on display, and boasts a “boneyard” tour of out-of-commission planes.
3. The Best Place to Live and/or Retire
US News & World Report has tagged the city of Tucson as both the best place to live and the best place to retire, thanks to its rich history, low cost of living, and mild winters. Tucson is surrounded by beautiful views, too.
4. A Diverse Population
When it comes to people, Tucson has it all — a booming college crowd, retirement-age residents who relocate for the mild winters, and young families whose parents work for major employers such as Raytheon Missile Systems.
5. Room to Breathe
The city of Arizona encompasses over 227 square miles, much of it suburban. There’s room to walk in Tucson. There’s room to bike and hike, too.
6. History, Culture, Education
Tucson is home to the San Xavier Indian Reservation, which features a historic Spanish mission built in the 1700s. Today, roughly 19 percent, or just over 2,000 members, of the Tohono O’Odham Nation, call this reservation home.
7. Active Nightlife
And for those who enjoy an abundance of opportunities to go out at night, Tucson holds superior appeal. Multiple brewing companies and taverns populate this diverse town, along with a comedy cafe, sports grills, nightclubs, and the Arizona Wine Collective.
8. Quality Schools
Multiple schools in Tucson have earned a 10 out of 10 rankings from GreatSchools.org. These include both public and private schools in Pima County.
9. Unrivaled Sunshine and Scenery
Tucson offers scenery unlike that found anywhere else in the world, bordered on the north by the Santa Catalina Mountains and on the south by the Santa Ritas. Arizona’s Vail community, just southeast of Tucson, is a perfect example of suburban living with stunning views.
