GENERAL INFORMATION: Located at an elevation of 2,900 feet, midway between Tucson and Nogales, Green Valley is rich in historic lore and blessed with abundant sunshine, more than 300 sunny days a year. The high elevation frequently assures a much cooler climate than Tucson or Phoenix.
Annual temperatures average 80 degrees during the daytime and 50 degrees at night, making the area a major attraction for visitors who flock here to enjoy outdoor activities all year long.
It's no wonder Green Valley has been selected as one of country's best places to retire by "Where to Retire" and "New Choices for Retirement" magazines.
Green Valley combines the best of two worlds, offering the amenities of city life, including abundant recreation, in the distinctly rural Santa Cruz River Valley overlooking a spectacular mountain range.
