Green Valley - Sahuarita
Tucson is the starting point for many wondrous day trips into Southern Arizona. You can reach the twin towns of Sahuarita and Green Valley, which share a border along the Santa Cruz River in the ecologically diverse Santa Cruz Valley National Heritage Area, in under 30 minutes by heading south from downtown on I-19. Or drive U.S. Route 89 for a more leisurely journey.
Green Valley is a bustling retirement community and a popular mild winter retreat. Golfers often get that legendary "Green Valley grin" while enjoying four public courses: Haven Public Golf Club, Quail Creek Country Club, San Ignacio Golf Club, and Torres Blancas Golf Club. The former Canoa Ranch Golf Course is being transformed into a natural open-space park.
Green Valley’s Community Performance & Art Center stages more than 100 concerts and live theater productions with a variety of art exhibitions annually, while the Green Valley Recreation Center presents a diverse performing arts series and hosts seasonal Farmers Markets.
