Tucson Jobs: Overview
With 193 sunny days a year, Tucson is one of the sunniest cities in the U.S. Tucson also shines at night: It's not only home to Kitt Peak National Observatory, but local laws limit the number of outdoor light bulbs, so ambient light doesn't ruin stargazers' view. From the sky to the ground, Tucson hosts one of the world's largest gem and mineral shows, with dazzling sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds on viewed by approximately 65,000 people each year. Tucson's food scene was the first in the U.S. to win a big shiny award as a "City of Gastronomy" from the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). The award was given to the city in part because of its sustainable and urban agriculture that supports Tucson jobs and the planet.
Tucson has one dubious honor. Academics have proclaimed that it's the most misspelled major city in the U.S. (Tuscon vs. Tucson). If you're looking for Tucson jobs but would like to live outside a large city (and you aren't a great speller), you can take a look at Oro Valley, Marana, and Avondale.
