Tucson is located in southeastern Arizona, 60 miles north of the Mexican border. Established in the valley of the Sonoran Desert, the city is surrounded by the Sierrita and Santa Rita mountain ranges to the south and the Rincon Mountains. Tucson was officially founded in 1776 and later officially became part of the United States in 1854. A major city in the Arizona Sun Corridor, Tucson is the largest city in southern Arizona and the second largest in the state after Phoenix, with an estimated population of 520,116. It is also the county seat of Pima County.

Tucson Overview

Historically, copper mining has played a vital part of Tucson’s economy; in 1976, one of every twenty Tucson residents was a copper miner. However, more recently there has been a dramatic decline in mining industries nationwide due to foreign competition and depressed copper prices. Another area that has largely impacted Tucson’s economic growth has been the development of the University of Arizona, which is currently the second largest employer in the city. Davis-Monthan Air Force Base also provides many jobs for Tucson residents. Tourism is another major industry in Tucson, as well as the design and manufacture of optics and optoelectronics systems, which has earned Tucson the nickname “Optics Valley”.
