Tucson is the oldest continually settled community in the United States, home to the Tohono O’odham and Pasqua Yaqui nations, the University of Arizona, and over one million people. As the only place in the United States to be designated a UNESCO World City of Gastronomy, the region boasts a creative and cutting edge cuisine, steeped in the use of native foods and influenced by both Mexican and Native American cultures. As a cultural crossroads, the Tucson region contains pre-historic, Spanish Colonial, ranching, mining, military, territorial, Mexican, and mid-century modern heritage landscapes. Surrounded by four mountain ranges and with 350 days of sunshine, Tucson’s natural beauty and access to outdoor recreation attracts visitors from around the world.
