Why You Should Spend This Winter in Tucson


Whether you are a snowbird, or are simply looking for a change of scenery this winter, why not escape the cold and snow for the warmer temperatures of Tucson, Arizona? Why spend winter bundled up in jackets and huddled around a fire when you could be in shorts and a T-shirt taking your pick from numerous outdoor activities like hiking, cycling, tennis, golf and more. Here at Stargate West we provide luxury short term accommodation for people wishing to make the winter migration to Tucson. Here are some reasons why you should spend this winter with us.

Perpetual sunshine and good weather

We can’t stress it enough, Tucson’s +350 days of sunshine a year is something many people only dream about. Picture blue sunny skies every day while enjoying the mild weather that winter brings. Temperatures are enjoyable, not humid, and stay in the high 60s low 70s for most of the winter. Compare this climate to most of America where snow storms, traffic chaos and the common cold are a daily reality. Not here. Winter is the time to be in Tucson with some of the best weather of our calendar year happening between December and March.

Not too big, not too small

Tucson appeals to both the city lover and the person seeking some small-town charm. With a world-class art and culture scene, incredible dining and shopping opportunities and a bustling business hub, city lovers will never be short on things to do. People preferring a more laid-back lifestyle close to nature and the great outdoors will enjoy many of the popular outdoor activities in Tucson such as the many National Parks, hikes and wildlife parks.

Outdoor activities galore

Enjoying outdoor activities in Tucson in winter doesn’t involve getting bundled up in layers. All winter long enjoy biking (Tucson was rated #7 among the 10 best cities in the US for people who like to bike ride), running (there are even marathons and 10km runs to challenge yourself), hiking (take your pick from Sabino Canyon, Pima Canyon, Saguaro National Park and more), swimming or rock climbing. Ditch those mittens and scarves, just don’t forget your sunscreen!

Close to it all

Another thing that makes Tucson so great is its proximity to so many other wonderful places. In six short hours you can be at the sand and surf of San Diego or Mexico, it’s only seven hours to the happiest place on earth (Disney Land!), five hours to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World (The Grand Canyon), and an easy trip to the casinos, lights and entertainment of Las Vegas.

Disaster Free

Here in Tucson we are certainly counting our blessings and are happy to report we are free of recent natural disasters that are common to other parts of the USA. Although there are a few natural disasters on record, the occurrences of tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes and floods are extremely rare in Tucson.

No cold winters

You probably get our point by now, Tucson is the place to be in the winter if you want to avoid shoveling snow, muddy boots, exorbitant heating bills, frozen fingers, slippery roads, being cold and everything else that comes along with a typical USA winter.
