Santa Cruz Valley

Tubac, Arizona is nestled in the Santa Cruz Valley of Southern Arizona.  It is situated along the banks of the Santa Cruz River which has been designated as one of the largest natural cottonwood /willow forests in the United States.  Tubac is located approximately 45 minutes south of Tucson and 20 minutes north of the International Port of Entry at Nogales, Arizona. 

Tubac is an historic/artisan community whose history reaches back to the mid 1700s with the established of a Spanish Presidio (Fort) in what is the current day Tubac.  The community is located in the “high Sonoran” desert region of Southern Arizona which provides for cooler temperatures in the summer than either Phoenix or Tucson.  In addition, the village of Tubac sits in the shadows of two large mountain ranges, the Santa Ritas which tower to over 10,000 feet and the Tumacacori Mountains which climb to a height of 5600 feet.   Tubac, Arizona is generally known as the place where Arizona began!
