Sunshine and jaw-dropping scenery surround you in Arizona’s hidden gem.
Roughly an hour north of the Mexican border, Tucson is a lively oasis in the Arizona desert. Downtown Tucson has undergone some major renovations and improvements since the early 2000s and has blossomed into an attractive, thriving hub of activity.
The University of Arizona is just a few blocks removed from Downtown, and the over-40,000 students enrolled at the college contribute heavily to the city’s eclectic arts, entertainment, and nightlife scenes. Davis-Monthan Air Force Base near the center of the city is one of Tuscon’s biggest employers for armed service personnel and civilians alike, and the military presence has a strong influence on the local culture.
Tucson is surrounded by nature preserves, including Saguaro National Park and Mount Lemmon, making it an excellent location for folks who love mountain biking, camping, hiking, and rock climbing. Perhaps most appealing of all, the rental market is exceptionally affordable, with many apartments, houses, and condos available for well under $500 per month.

Living in Tucson
Visitors and residents should have an easy time getting to town, getting out, and traveling around. Tucson has many different transportation options from jets to bikes. Public transportation is actually a highlight of this city.

This bus service runs through most of the Tucson Metropolitan Area.
The city is served by Tucson International Airport, and this fairly large hub lies only six miles south of downtown. It is the second largest airport in the state of Arizona, and it provides nonstop flights to over a dozen other major U.S. airports. Residents can also enter or leave the city by train.

Another highlight of the Tucson transportation system are miles of bike lanes. In fact, the city has an extension system of commuter bike lanes, so it is not unusual to see people taking bikes to and from work as well as cruising around for fun and exercise.
