Desert Sunset


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!

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!
