Nestled in the haunting beauty of the Sonoran desert, the urban jewel of Tucson shines as brightly as Arizona’s sunshine. Sleek skyscrapers form silhouettes against crimson and gold sunsets, while magnificent saguaro cacti dot the landscape like ancient centurions. Rich in the lore and spirit of the Old West, Tucson blends all the casual elegance of Southwestern living with state-of-the-art services and amenities.

While metropolitan Tucson dominates much of Pima County, the neighboring counties of Santa Cruz and Cochise are welcoming new development that includes beautiful master-planned communities and handsome subdivisions. Within the scope of this pristine desert environment, newcomers can discover the ideal setting for their lifestyle and interests. From small but growing communities to historic districts and award-winning resort developments, metropolitan Tucson and southeastern Arizona are attracting national attention.

Within the past two decades, Tucson has “arrived” as major economic force in Arizona, rapidly expanding its list of high-tech, knowledge-based industries. Many relocating companies are selecting Tucson over Phoenix for the abundance and affordability of commercial property.

Residents of metropolitan Tucson enjoy some of the most sophisticated and highly acclaimed healthcare institutions in the nation. Major healthcare systems like Carondelet Health Network ensure a comprehensive network of services and facilities, from major medical centers and teaching hospitals to rehabilitation centers, specialty institutes, home health care, skilled nursing, and a wide spectrum of public health screening and wellness programs. The University Medical Center, the primary teaching facility for the UA College of Medicine, also operates a long list of Centers of Excellence that benefit from the University of Arizona’s reputation as one of the nation’s foremost research universities.

Both public and private schools provide a quality education to students from preschool through graduate and professional studies. Arizona is a national leader in charter schools, an innovation that creates tuition-free public schools that operate with many of the freedoms of a private school. The University of Arizona sets the pace for educational excellence throughout metropolitan Tucson, leading the state and the nation with an array of fine programs.
