Pima County is a unique place. It lies at an ecological crossroad where habitats and species from the neo-tropics meet the Rocky Mountains and Sonoran Desert. The diversity in flora, fauna and geology is spectacular. Pima County is home to one of North America’s longest continuously inhabited areas – the Santa Cruz River valley. It is a locale rich in pre-Columbian archaeology, history and historic routes such as the De Anza Trail, as well as the living cultures of Native American tribes. Pima County is also a birder’s paradise with over 400 bird species found here annually – many of which are found nowhere else in the nation.
Some of the best attractions in Southern Arizona are found right here in Pima County including the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Pima Air and Space Museum, Colossal Cave Mountain Park, Old Tucson Studios, Titan Missile Museum and more.
