Tucson is a hybrid city where the Old West teams up with the New South to create a sunny blend of tradition and innovation. An energetic college town, Tucson is home to the University of Arizona, where thousands of students buzz throughout the city, bringing diverse backgrounds, academia, and vigour to the environment.
Second largest in Arizona only to Phoenix, Tucson is built on an anthology of distinct neighbourhoods that gives it more of a small-town, approachable feel. 19th century buildings line many of the major streets in Tucson, casting a glow of history, authenticity, and character that sets the stage for a memorable travel experience. Comprised of flat valleys and abundant mountain ranges, the city blends its culture just as well as it does its geography.
Once in Tucson, you’ll immediately sense the cultural harmony of the city’s forward-thinking community and its backward reaching hold on its sacred history. Partially surrounded by the Saguaro National Park, Tucson manages to link its natural paradise with its developed innovations, like golf resorts, art museums, galleries, and restaurants. Its cultural beat resonates throughout each of the separate neighbourhoods, and the gorgeous weather, cactus scenery, and Hispanic roots make it very appealing.
While there are some slight differences in the city’s seasonal climate, you can visit Tucson any time of the year to experience warm weather, sunny days, and outdoor bliss. Summer sizzles with temperatures in the mid-20s and 30s, but rainfall makes more than the occasional appearance in the months of July and August. Even in the winter, temperatures only drop to 10 to 15 degrees, creating perfect conditions for 18 holes on the green.
All year round, travellers flood Tucson to enjoy its unbeatable weather, outdoor facilities, and cultural activities. No matter when you go, you’ll be satisfied.
For the ideal weather, visit Tucson from September to April, when the sun is bearable, and rainfall is rare.
July and August are known to jump back and forth between scorching hot days, and muggy, wet showers. Although the hit-or-miss weather may seem unreliable, it’s possible to find deals on accommodation and cheap flights to Tucson during the summer.
Tucson doesn’t have much public transportation. When your land, you’ll need to board a taxi or shuttle from the airport for a short, 10-mile (16 km) drive to the centre. You’ll want to rent a car or bike to get around the city, but there are buses and Amtrak trains to cities like Phoenix and Los Angeles.
Tucson International Airport is the gateway to Arizona’s stark, beautiful, desert landscape. It is just 10km (6 miles) from downtown Tucson and has good transport options to get passengers to and from the airport. There are fewer than ten airlines offering flights to Tucson International Airport. Passengers can fly directly to Tucson from several cities across the United States, including Chicago, Houston, Seattle and Los Angeles.
The airport has a good number of restaurants as well as shopping opportunities ranging from golfing equipment to souvenirs and gifts. If none of those interests you, then the arts and culture programme is sure to keep passengers entertained. A permanent exhibition and a number of temporary installations convey the culture and beauty of Arizona. Passenger feedback indicates that Tucson’s relatively small size means shorter queues and friendlier service than larger airfields.
Tucson (TUS), located 7.5 mi from the city centre, is the airport you fly into when you book flights to Tucson.
