In the Gateway to Southern Arizona, you’ll find a place where the history is etched into the earth, into a landscape that invites exploration. In the summer, intrepid photographers can venture into the desert to capture the moment when lightning strikes mountain, when rain and sun and thunder collide. Fall bike rides will treat cyclists to marvelous views of a sea of white as Marana’s farmers harvest their fields of cotton. Grab a blanket in the winter and gaze up at the starry night; the Town’s dark skies policy means that the thousands of stars twinkling overhead are not obscured by city lights. Spring’s warm days and cool nights make it hard to stay indoors. From the moment the sun crests over the Tortolitas to its final glimmers as it sets behind the Silverbells, you’ll want to soak in its warm rays.
Thanks to the gentle climate of the Sonoran Desert, golf is an option in any season. Our verdant fairways sparkle beneath year-round sunshine, inviting seasoned veterans and untested newcomers alike to take a swing on the links.

Marana offers plenty of shopping options where you can find countless temptations including the new Tucson Premium Outlets opening October 1, 2015. Hungry? The Town is home to many dining choices that will satisfy any appetite.
