Tucson: Largest City in southern Arizona
Tucson Travel Blog› entry 2 of 16 › view all entries
Tucson is approximately 2,400 feet above sea level and 60 miles north of the Mexico border and about 150 miles south of the capital city, Phoenix- and about 500 miles east of Los Angeles and the ocean). Tucson is one of the last of the wild frontiers, being the oldest inhabited city in North America (inhabited first by the Hohokam Indians around 100AD). The valley is home to a half million people who dwell in this Southwestern U.S. desert environment. I relocated to Tucson a year ago from a small town called Sonoita, in comparison, Tucson is huge (read my Sonoita blog). Tucson is actually a big city, it is one of the larger metropolitan cities in the United States. It is the site of University of Arizona " home of the Wildcats" and is the largest city in southern Arizona.
Funny I, have not seen half of the attraction within my town, I should get active and do so before I decide to relocate and then regret not seeing them. To do so of course I would need to limit some of my out of state and out of country travels. O' I must mention - Tucson has some breathtaking sunsets, nothing compares . . .!
Welcome to Tucson! You will have an exciting time in the land of the wildcats.
