Green Valley, Arizona

The recorded history of Green Valley, located in Arizona’s Santa Cruz Valley, began in 1 A.D. The Hohokam, Pima and Tohono O’dham Indian tribes were the first to call this area home. The flags of Mexico, Spain, the Confederacy, the State of Arizona & the United State of America have all flown here. Spanish warriors, ranchers, missionaries, desperados & prospectors also lived here in earlier times.*

Green Valley is twenty miles (32 km) south of Tucson and 40 miles (64 km) north of Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. Surrounded by copper mines, and near the cycling, hiking and birding areas of the Santa Rita Mountains, Green Valley is an unincorporated retirement community composed of several Homeowner Associations.

The neighboring town just north of Green Valley is Sahuarita. Be sure to check out our page for more information.

From the Green Vally Chamber website:
Green Valley and Sahuarita are nestled at the base of the majestic Santa Rita Mountain Range in southern Arizona’s beautiful Santa Cruz Valley. At a high desert elevation of 2,900 feet, Green Valley and Sahuarita enjoy a cooler climate than Phoenix or Tucson.

Green Valley and Sahuarita, with a combined population of 50,000, offer the casual, clean, uncongested atmosphere of a small town, yet provide many of the amenities one would expect in their community.

With more than 300 days of sunshine and an average temperature of 85 we invite you to come to the gateway of Southern Arizona and enjoy golfing, hiking, biking, and bird watching, or visit some of our Southern Arizona attractions such as the Titan II Missile Museum, Madera Canyon, Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory, San Xavier del Bac Mission, Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum, or Kartchner Caverns.
