Tucson Proud to be a Little “Out There”
Tucson is a place that beckons you to explore without boundaries. For those who venture off the beaten path, this city is proud to be a little "out there" - a natural oasis away from the unoriginal and pretentious that inspires the free spirit in us all.

Located in the heart of southern Arizona, in the diverse ecosystem of the Sonoran Desert, Tucson is about 110 miles south of the state capital of Phoenix and only 70 miles from the US-Mexico border. At an elevations of 2,389 feet above sea level, metropolitan Tucson covers nearly 500 square miles. Surrounded on all sides by five picturesque mountain ranges and nestled between the Saguaro National Park (East & West).
The city and its surrounding areas are rich with a deep-rooted history and a culture grown from a landscape that can't be found anywhere else in the world. The landscape is varied and includes flowering desert, rolling hills, winding dry riverbeds, rugged canyons and pine-topped peaks, all beneath a clear, blue sky.
