||Tucson has been continuously settled for over 12,000 years and celebrates a unique diversity of cultures, architecture, and peoples. One of the oldest towns in the United States, Tucson officially became part of the United States with the Gadsden Purchase of 1854 and served as the capital of the Arizona Territory from 1867 to 1877. Now the 2nd largest city in the State and the 33rd largest city in the nation, Tucson maintains a strong connection to our cultural heritage as we look toward the future.
Surrounded by five mountain ranges, Tucson’s 238-plus square miles boast the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert and an unsurpassed climate of more than 350 sunny days a year – yet is just a short drive from the cool sub-alpine meadows on Mount Lemmon. Tucson, also referred to as a “mini-mecca for the arts,” was selected as the first UNESCO City of Gastronomy in the U.S. Beautiful Tucson is home to world-class outdoor recreation, a vibrant, growing city center, renowned museums, and the University of Arizona.
