Explore dawn to dusk offerings from Tucson's neighbor to the north.
A Town on the Move
In the shadow of Pusch Ridge, the western end of the Santa Catalina Mountains, with the Tortolita mountains in the distance to the north and views of the Tucson skyline to the south, Oro Valley has a character and culture of its own, with all the conveniences of the bigger city nearby.
Less than half an hour from downtown Tucson up Oracle Road (State Route 77), Oro Valley was incorporated in 1974 and has a population just under 40,000. Its "Valley of Gold" name harkens back to a time when the area drew prospectors eager to find their fortune.
Though the rumors that the area was rich with gold proved false, Oro Valley is rich in natural beauty, outdoor adventure, and a small-town, family-friendly culture that's landed it on several "best place to live" lists in recent years.
