Tucson Maps and Orientation

(Tucson, Arizona - AZ, USA)

Set within the Sonoran Desert, the city of Tucson is to be found on the southeastern side of the state of Arizona, close to Green Valley and within Pima County, where it is the county seat.

Many suburbs surround Tucson, such as Casas Adobes, Drexel Heights, Sahuarita and Vail. The Catalina Foothills, the Oro Valley and the Santa Catalina Natural Area all lie to the north, while the Saguaro National Park resides to the east, and the Coronado National Forest to the south.

Interstate I-10 dissects the city of Tucson and heads in a northwest to southeast direction, connecting Chandler, Glendale, Mesa, Phoenix and Scottsdale to the northwest. The Sonoran Desert National Monument is also to be found in this direction, along the I-8 turn-off. The Mexican border is roughly a 90-minute drive to the south, being reached via the I-19, which links the twin border cities of Nogales (Santa Cruz County) and Nogales (Sonora, Mexico).
