Tucson's historic 4th Avenue


We hate to give away our best-kept secret, but Tucson is one of the best places to live in the country (and Outside magazine agrees).

Located in the lush Sonoran desert, the metropolitan area of a million people is nestled between five mountain ranges, has a world-renowned multicultural food scene and eclectic neighborhoods and offers year-round outdoor activities, including cycling, hiking, rock climbing and astronomy. You’ll fit right in.
