Northwest Tucson and Westside

Once a vast, open space dotted with horse ranches, Northwest Tucson is now a rapidly growing residential area encompassing the townships of Oro Valley and Marana. Families and retirees are moving here in droves, and the traffic congestion proves the point. You'll also find first-rate golf resorts and restaurants, a popular outlet store mall, and the oases of Tohono Chul Park and Catalina State Park, which calm the senses.
