Moving to Tucson, Arizona, or considering ‘The Old Pueblo’ as a potential place to settle down? Well, the search is over. My Tucson Movers has got you covered with the nine of best reasons that will get you excited to call the city of Tucson your new home.
1. The weather.
Pristine sunshine everywhere, every day, all year long. Though this factor may be unappealing for some, the snow birds would beg to differ. They’ll be the first to praise the glistening rays and non-humid climate that keep those cloudy day blues away.
2. Clean air.
Speaking of climate, you’ll also be happy to breathe the air in Tucson with ease as it ranks high when it comes to the best air quality in the U.S.
It is even currently ranked #1 for the cleanest metropolitan areas in the country for 24-hour particle pollution.
3. 360-degree mountain view.
With every direction you head, whether on foot or on car, mountains will be beautifully set over the horizon. You might as well call it free art.
4. Hiker’s and biker’s haven.
No need to drive five hours to the Grand Canyon in search of a rugged outdoorsy experience (though there is that option). The scenic trails and paved roads amongst the canyons in Tucson will excite both experts and newbies alike.
Head to Sabino Canyon, Catalina State Park, and Tortolita Mountains for some of the best biking/hiking trails Arizona has to offer.
5. Mt. Lemmon.
On hotter days, you might consider driving up less than hour to the zen that is Mt. Lemmon. Up at 9,157 feet above ground, you’ll find cooler temps coupled with an amazing scenery. Lush greens and the smell of pine will be an appreciated contrast of environment from the dessert below. You may even find snow in the winter!
Make a stop at The Cookie Cabin for the some freshly baked goodies (and even pizza!) after your trail ventures.
6. Mexican food.
Being that Tucson is in such close proximity to Mexico, it’s only natural that we’d cultivate a heap of Latin restaurants offering some of the best, most authentic Mexican cuisine in the west coast.
7. University of Arizona.
Not to mention being known for their outstanding sports programs, The University of Arizona also excels in every aspect of education. Located right in the heart of Tucson, this makes for a great diversity of young people that really give life and balance to The Old Pueblo.
You’ll be proud to call yourself or your loved one a Wildcat.
8. Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
The Air Force Base is one of Tucson’s top employers with close to 8,000 employees. Because of this, many families in the southeast area have military servicemen or employees. Those looking to move to Tucson for work at Davis-Monthan will share a connection with many of the families currently living there.
Davis-Monthan is also known for housing the excess and unused military aircrafts in a facility known as the Air Force Material Command’s 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group, or the Boneyard. The Boneyard houses countless fighter jets and carrier planes and is listed as the largest airship storage facility in the entire world.
9. Downtown Tucson.
Downtown Tucson has a great deal to offer just about anyone with its arts and theatres, restaurants, and scenic views.
