Tucson…your new home!

What’s the geography like? The city sits 2,389 feet above sea level and spreads across nearly 500 miles. The landscape is made up of desert, hills, canyons, riverbeds, mountain peaks, and blue sky. Five different mountain ranges surround the city: Rincon Mountains, Tucson Mountains, Santa Catalina Mountains, Santa Rita Mountains, and Tortolita Mountains. The city is just an hour away from the Mexico border, two hours away from Phoenix, and just an hour away from Mt. Lemmon, the area’s highest mountain peak. The best part of the drive there is that you’ll see seven of the world’s nine life zones. It’s like driving from Mexico to Canada, but all in one hour!

How’s the weather? Tucson has the typical desert climate, with extremely hot summers and mild winters. The sun is always on display in Tucson, as the city gets more than 350 days of sunshine per year – great for outdoor adventure. Thanks to the two minor rainy seasons the city gets per year (late summer and early winter), the landscape surrounding the city is very lush, not dry like you would expect a desert-climate city to be.

Where can you get an education in Tucson? The Tucson Unified School District serves most of the students in the area. There are more than 52,000 students in grades Pre-K-12 in more than 90 schools, including magnet schools. There are also several private schools in the area to choose from. For higher education, Tucson offers the University of Arizona, Prima Community College, Tucson College, The Art Institute of Tucson, and Prima Medical Institute to name a few!

What’s the economy like? Tucson’s economy is based on tourism, manufacturing, technology, military, and the arts. Top Employers in the area include Raytheon Missile Systems, the University of Arizona, the state of Arizona, the city of Tucson, 3M, Allied Signal, IBM, Texas Instruments, Intuit, America Online, Davis-Monthan AFB, and Walmart, to name a few! Because there are so many companies in Tucson that design and manufacture optics, the city has then nickname of “Optics Valley.”
