Beyond its natural beauty and an unsurpassed climate of sunshine 360 days a year, residents have embraced the state's reputation as a place to truly experience and appreciate the great outdoors, The city's mild weather and warm, dry climate coaxes both residents and visitors outside to enjoy the sunshine while the surrounding mountains offer cooler temperatures that allows for swimming, hiking, golfing and biking - all in the same day! In fact, Bicycling Magazine has ranked Tucson as one of the top cycling cities in the U.S. for several years running.
