Tucson is the second largest city in the state of Arizona, next to Phoenix, Arizona, Tucson has a population of around 530,706 people. Tucson is the largest city in southern Arizona and even though it does not compare in size to many other cities in the United States, Tucson is rated the 33rd largest city in America, leaving it at the 53rd largest metropolitan area in the states. Because of Tucson’s location, being situated just north of Mexico and southeast of Phoenix, the land is located around the desert and mountains. This causes the land to become dry ultimately because it gets so hot there. Being in a desert, there is not much rainfall throughout the year and when there is, the heat evaporates the rainfall so quickly, it is almost as if it never hit the ground. This causes high temperatures in humidity and also only allows two different seasons. The summer is hot and dry, as the winter is fairly warm compared to most places. Fall and spring weather are barely noticeable because of the elevation of the land and being closer to the sun, Tucson is fairly warm all year long.

The Paleo-Indians were said to be the first inhabitants of not only the area of which Tucson was founded but the entire western hemisphere. A village has been spotted in Tucson from over 12,000 years ago in 2100 BC. Within the village, a series of irrigation systems that were made by the people of the time were found. Canals and other waterways and rivers were constructed for the land because of how dry it is. Without the water-flow from the larger bodies of water, the land would be very difficult to cultivate and grow crops. In the early 1690’s and early 1700’s, an Italian, religious missionary by the name of Eusebio Francisco Kino visited the Santa Cruz river valley and founded the Mission San Xavier del Bac upstream from the site of where as we now know as Tucson, Arizona. This mission served the inhabitants of the land very well until the Apache Indian tribe ran through the village, burning and destroying everything in their path. It was rebuilt years later around 1783 and still stands today. Once Mexico gained its independence from Spain, the land became part of the state of Sonora and was eventually then called ‘Tucson’.

During the Mexican-American War in 1846 to 1848, Tucson was captured by a United States Army cavalry officer who was also serving as a Union General in the war. It was not until 1858 when Arizona south of the Gila River was acquired by treaty. They then began construction of a railway system but had to discontinue the project when the remaining Apache Indians were attacking the railway and those who were constructing it. After this, between the years of 1867 and 1877, Tucson received the title of territorial capital.

Although compared to most places with a desert geographic, Tucson gets more precipitation than its neighboring city of Phoenix just a little over 100 miles away. Tucson is like this because of the mountains surrounding the city. Tucson goes through what is called ‘monsoon season’. This is normally in the summer months of June and July and can lasts for a couple of months. Flash floods, lightning, and extreme humidity is all consisted in a monsoon. The floods can get so bad that the roadways are often blocked off and very dangerous to ride on during these times. The temperatures are at the lowest in the winter months of January and February but are usually only at 60 to 75 degrees.

Tucson has an incredible number of tourists and visitors that stay in the city every year. With around 3.5 million visitors a year, there are many sites and activities to do while in the city. The University of Arizona is not only a great college in the area but provides many of the residents of the city with jobs. Another big source of jobs comes from the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. The US Army Intelligence Center is also in the area, this opens up the expansion of a number of high-tech industries, creating more jobs ultimately. Tourists help bring in a about 2 billion dollars per year.

Activities in Tucson are never ending. Exploring the outdoors of this unique desert city on horseback is a great way to start. The beautiful view of being surrounded by mountains is sure to leave you awestruck. Resorts and golf courses are also very popular in Tucson. Since you are close to the mountains as it is, may as well go for a hike or even ski down the slopes in the winter months! If you are looking for live music, Tucson has a very wide range of different music. From mariachi music, to country, rock and roll, or hip hop, there is always a place to find music in Tucson. Music venues are all over the city and simple google searches of the Tucson music scene will point you in the right direction.

If you are one that is looking forward to enjoying the outdoors of Tucson, Arizona, be prepared to come in contact with a lot of wildlife. Especially trekking through the desert, keep an eye out for the rattlesnake, a bite from those could be very deadly and serious. Admiring animals such as the bighorn sheep and elk may be a beautiful thing from afar, but if you get too close, this could also be a grave mistake. Predator animals such as coyotes and wolves run loose at night. Being out in the desert at night, especially on the mountain trails, can be a very bad idea. Not only are wild animals a danger, getting lost in the wilderness is easy to accidentally do. If it is your first time in a particular area, it is good to have someone accompanying you that is also keeping track of where you are taking your nature walk or hike. Mountain biking is another fun activity that the locals partake in. Mountain biking however takes a lot of skill and should not be attempted by anyone that is not comfortable on a bike or is not used to riding down rugged terrain.
