If you ever have to make a blind bet on that day's weather in Tucson, bet "sunny," and you'll win more than 96% of the time. With 350+ days of sunshine a year, Tucson is one of the sunniest cities in the United States! Not to mention the mountains and breathtaking sunsets.

That translates to fun events all year, sports and outdoor activities even in midwinter, and family-friendly weather that almost never gets in the way of things to do. We're hot in the summer, but the nights are amazing, and as they say, "it's a dry heat," which means it’s easy to cool down. And with rain in late summer and early winter, we're a different kind of desert and a lot greener than you think!
