Old Pueblo

One of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country, Tucson is a city on a cultural crossroads, with European, Native American, Mexican, and Asian residents blending and sometimes conflicting with one another. The city and its suburbs house over 150 companies involved in the design and production of optics, responsible for the area's nickname "Optics Valley." A busy college town, Tucson attracts students from around the world, nearly 35,000 of them attending classes at the oldest university in the state of Arizona. To experience the best of what this city has to offer when on vacation here, include the downtown's eclectic restaurants and bars on your itinerary. Tucson is in Arizona.
