3 Reasons Why Tucson Should Be Your Home Away from Home
We are so lucky to call the beautiful city of Tucson, Arizona home. Our average daily high temperature in March is 75 degrees - the perfect weather for hiking, biking, and exploring our city.
Here's a sampling of Tucson happenings our Wildcats know and love
- Festivals. Tucson is home to so many great events, such as the All Souls Procession (one of the largest in the country), the 4th Avenue Street Fair, Tucson Meet Yourself, and the Tucson Festival of Books.
- The Catalina Mountains. If you're looking to get a firsthand desert expeirence, maybe find that hiking trail only locals know, or even lace up your ski boots and hit the slopes, the Catalinas are the perfect escape.
- Revinventing the Wheel. One of Tucson's claims to fame is that we have more bike lanes (620) than any U.S. city. Every year, we host the El Tour de Tucson, which attracts nearly 10,000 cyclists from around the world. We also host an annual Cyclovia, where we shut down some local streets to motorists, so folks are able bike care and car free.
