Tucson officially was founded on August 20, 1776 — an event celebrated annually at Tucson’s birthday party, La Fiesta de San Agustín. It was part of Mexico, at that time. Tucson officially became part of the United States in 1854.
Soon after, cattle ranchers, settlers, miners, and Apache Indians began to clash, thus beginning the Wild West era of 1860-1880. With the Southern Pacific Railroad’s arrival in 1880, Tucson’s multicultural roots grew as new residents adopted customs of the Tohono O’odham Indians and Mexicans living here.
In 1877, the city was incorporated, making Tucson the oldest incorporated city in Arizona.
Tucson is now the second-largest city in Arizona after the state capital Phoenix; it is also the county seat of Pima County, which includes the towns of Marana, Oro Valley, Catalina, South Tucson, Sahuarita, Vail, and Green Valley. Metropolitan Tucson’s population is more than 1 million; this includes roughly 50,000 students and employees at the University of Arizona, the first university in Arizona, founded in 1885.
Boasting an average 350 sunny days a year and warm dry air, Tucson’s climate is ideal for year-round outdoor recreation. Winter temperatures average highs of 64-75 °F and perfect for major events.
