Downtown Tucson has experienced a miraculous economic revitalization with unprecedented levels of investment, hundreds of new businesses, and thousands of new jobs resulting in a thriving Downtown environment. Geographically located in the heart of the city, Downtown Tucson has transformed itself from a government center to the region’s entertainment hub. There is an increasing variety of restaurants, nightlife and cultural arts venues, and scores of major events that attract more than a milion people annually.

I love the quirkiness and uniqueness of Tucson; we have character and even with all the growth and development, we still hold on to that. There’s so much I appreciate about Tucson: the outdoors, food (UNESCO City of Gastronomy), the people, the culture.

Tucson can provide the best of both worlds, if you are intentional. The 33rd largest metro in the U.S., it's big enough to make your big idea happen but not too big that you get lost. That low barrier to entry, and that family feel, is a really special thing that a lot of other places don't have.
