Bring Your Highest Expectations to the Valley of Gold: Oro Valley
Everything that makes life enjoyable can be found in Oro Valley.
Located northwest of Tucson on the edge of the Pusch Ridge Wilderness, Oro Valley features some of Southern Arizona’s most spectacular private properties. Its residents, numbering just over 40,000, boast a median household income nearly 50% higher than the U.S. median. This level of affluence has created a community consisting of beautiful, well-maintained neighborhoods, top-rated schools, high-tech industry, shopping and abundant recreation. Oro Valley, called one of the nation’s fittest towns, earns this reputation because of the many excellent outdoor recreational opportunities available year-round.
The pride felt by the community’s residents for their town is abundantly clear in every corner of the suburb. The natural beauty of spectacular Pusch Peak to the east, mirrors the community’s commitment to a luxurious public aesthetic. All new building projects must include public art. And wonderful, original works of art are on display at both public parks and buildings but also on private developments. This attention to detail truly makes Oro Valley feel like the upscale community it has become.
At 2,620 feet above sea level, Oro Valley sits high in the Tucson Valley, making it cooler and greener than the city. Many locations boast spectacular mountain, golf course or city views. Oro Valley features several resorts and country clubs, and ten, world-class golf courses are within a few minutes of the town. The community has shown strong support for parks, recreation, and outdoor facilities including desert hiking trails and historic preservation of cultural treasures located within the town’s borders. These amenities, as well as some of Arizona’s best schools, keep the town’s population growing.
Oro Valley is limited in size purposefully, to help preserve the unique natural feel of the high desert mixed with carefully planned building. Homes here are suited to a very selective buyer and many have substantial upgrades, pools and other highly attractive features including golf course placement.
The recently built, state-of the-art, Oro Valley Hospital lies in the heart of the town. There are also urgent care centers and many other world-class medical providers and services nearby.
From this northwest community, access I-10 for an easy commute to Tucson or a day trip to bustling Metro Phoenix.
Whether you are ready to elevate your lifestyle in retirement or to make a home for a growing family, Oro Valley is the perfect place to bring your highest expectations.
