Tucson, Arizona

Tucson is the county seat of Pima County, Arizona, United States. It is the home to the University of Arizona. The 2010, United States Census put the population at 520,116, while the 2013 estimated population of the entire Tucson metropolitan statistical area (MSA) was 996,544. Tucson is the second-largest populated city in Arizona behind Phoenix, both of which anchor the Arizona Sun Corridor. Tucson is located 108 miles (174 km) southeast of Phoenix and 60 mi (97 km) north of the U.S.-Mexico border. It is the 33rd largest city and the 59th largest metropolitan area in the United States. Roughly 150 Tucson companies are involved in the design and manufacture of optics and optoelectronics systems, earning Tucson the nickname Optics Valley.

Tucson was probably first visited by Paleo-Indians, known to have been in southern Arizona about 12,000 years ago. Jesuit missionary Eusebio Francisco Kino visited the Santa Cruz River valley in 1692, and founded the Mission San Xavier del Bac in 1700 about 7 mi (11 km) upstream from the site of the settlement of Tucson. A separate Convento settlement was founded downstream along the Santa Cruz River, near the base of what is now “A” mountain. Hugo O’Conor, the founding father of the city of Tucson, Arizona authorized the construction of a military fort in that location, Presidio San Agustín del Tucsón, on August 20, 1775 (near the present downtown Pima County Courthouse). During the Spanish period of the presidio, attacks such as the Second Battle of Tucson were repeatedly mounted by Apaches. Eventually the town came to be called “Tucson” and became a part of Sonora after Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1821.

Tucson has hot summers and temperate winters. Tucson is almost always cooler and wetter than Phoenix because of its higher elevation. Tucson has a desert climate, with two major seasons, summer and winter; plus three minor seasons: fall, spring, and the monsoon. Tucson averages 11.8 inches (299.7 mm) of precipitation per year, more than most other locations with desert climates, but it still qualifies due to its high evapotranspiration; in other words, it experiences a high net loss of water. A similar scenario is seen in Alice Springs, Australia, which averages 11 inches (279.4 mm) a year, but has a desert climate.

Tucson appeals to a diverse group of travellers because there are a variety of things to do. For a closer look at the Arizona desert, spend some time exploring Saguaro National Park and the hiking trails of Sabino Canyon. The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum also provides an interesting look at Tucson’s natural surroundings. For a taste of contemporary Tucson, spend some time perusing the galleries in the Catalina Foothills district or mingling with University of Arizona students at the bars on Fourth Avenue. History and culture buffs appreciate the Arizona State Museum and the University of Arizona Art Museum, while shoppers peruse the numerous vintage and budget-friendly shops near campus. If you’re visiting during the fall, head over to the Arizona Stadium to watch the Wildcats’ football team take on notable Pac-10 rivals, while March Madness fiends can watch the school’s NCAA champs play at the McKale Center.
