About the Community:
Located approximately 120 miles southeast of Phoenix, Tucson is the second largest city in Arizona and the 32nd largest city in the U.S.  The area is situated in the Sonoran Desert and is surrounded by five mountain ranges.  Beyond its natural beauty and an unsurpassed climate of 360 days a year, residents have embraced the state’s reputation as a place to truly experience and appreciate the great outdoors. The city’s mild weather and warm, dry climate coaxes both residents and visitors outside to enjoy the sunshine while the surrounding mountains offer cooler temperatures that allows for swimming, hiking, golfing, skiing, and biking. Bicycling Magazine has ranked Tucson as one of the top cycling cities in the U.S. for several years running. The abundance and low price of land continues to provide Tucsonans with a wide range of housing styles and communities.  Based on cost-of-living indexes, housing is far more affordable here than in many areas.
