Tucson When to Go

It’s no surprise the silver-haired set, northern refugees, and outdoor enthusiasts flock here in winter. Between October and April, days are routinely in the 70s or 80s, and at least nine out of ten are soaked with sun. It rarely rains in Tucson and virtually never snows.

All winter long, bicyclists visit for off-season training, and in November there’s El Tour of Tucson, a road-bike race that attracts some 9,000 participants. February brings the Tucson Rodeo, which is nearly 90 years old, and the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. The largest in the country, it takes place at venues across the city and attracts more than 60,000 people, from obsessive collectors to casual visitors.

By March, wildflowers bloom, and by April, the desert starts heating up. Summer is marked by 100-degree days that force residents to all but hibernate. Even by mid-morning, temperatures are too high to allow much venturing outside, chasing most visitors far away. By September, temps start to dip into the 90s and the local resorts and hotels tempt visitors with some of the best deals of the year. Take advantage, hike in the mornings, and sit by the pool the rest of the day.
