Home to the University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona is the second largest city in AZ. Surrounded by five minor mountain ranges, Tucson lies within an alluvial plain in the Sonoran Desert. The southernmost ski destination in the US, Mount Lemmon, is within easy travel distance and offers cool relief from the hotter temperatures of the desert. Only 69 miles north of the US-Mexico border, Tucson provides easy access for excursions to Mexico. As a city established by European Americans, the city was developed on a grid plan, making it easy to find your way around town and boasts of their bike-only lanes in Central Tucson. The city offers a number of historical sites, a diverse art scene, and amazing Southwestern cuisine. The Sonoran Desert presents a unique outdoor perspective for mountain bikers and hikers provided one carries plenty of sunscreen and water. The summers are long and hot, averaging between 98 and 102 degrees Fahrenheit, while winters are very pleasant. This area is also susceptible to flooding during late summer/early fall due to monsoon season. Carondelet St. Joseph’s Hospital might be a good fit for you if you love hotter climates, unique experiences, and urban living.
