Tucson’s hot summers and mild winters, when daytime temperatures range from 64 F to 75 F, plus higher elevation at 2,400 feet, make it slightly cooler and wetter than Phoenix. The best time to visit is probably the spring, unless you like it hot. Average rainfall is around 11.8 inches per year. The rain tends to evaporate, which is why it is considered a desert climate even though there is substantial rain.
Whichever season you choose, vacationers will find plenty of festivals and fairs to keep them entertained, such as the annual Tucson Gem and Mineral Show, held each winter for more than 50 years, the Tucson Festival of Books (March) and the Tucson Rodeo (February).
