Tucson lies just an hour north of the Mexican border. Surrounded by a mountainous region, the location offers much for those looking to take in a bit of nature. Mount Lemmon and Mica Mountain line the eastern edge of the city, while Saguaro National Park and Tucson Mountain Park lie to the west. The Coronado National Forest is a short distance south, and a hilly region makes up the north.
When visitors fly into Tucson International Airport (TUS), they will land in the southernmost part of the city. East Valencia Road runs east to west from TUS, which connects to Interstate 19 on the west and Interstate 10 on the east.
While both routes travel north and combine within Tucson, I-19 continues south to Mexico and I-10 continues east to New Mexico. From TUS, South Campbell Avenue takes visitors to the Kino Sports Complex and a large portion of the city. Attractions such as Mission San Xavier del Bac can be accessed via I-19 south and taking West San Xavier Road west.
Established in 1775 as a presidio, Tucson is one of the oldest towns in the United States. With an average of 350 sunny days per year, visitors can feel assured that the weather will be nice for a round of golf or exploring national parks.
