Tucson, home to the University of Arizona and Pima Community College, is located in a valley at the base of several different mountain ranges in south-central Arizona, a one hour drive from Mexico. It is the gateway to the Saguaro National Park which is located both east and west of the city and features that unique desert icon, the saguaro cactus. With nearly always clear skies, it is the perfect location for several observatories, the largest of which is the Kitt Peak National Observatory west of Tucson. Biosphere 2 is another unique attraction that serves as a center for life-long learning about Earth and its place in the universe. Tucson has been named one of the most bicycle friendly cities in the country and offers many recreational activities from skiing in the Santa Catalina mountains, hiking through the many state parks, swinging a tennis racket or golf club at any of dozens of locations. A visit to the Old Pueblo would not be complete without a trip to the world famous Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum or Old Tucson movie studio. Come join us for sunshine, saguaros, road runners and, perhaps, a margarita or two.
