TUCSON FUN FACTS

1. The Tucson Rodeo Parade is the largest non-motorized parade in the world.

2. With 350 days of sunshine a year, Tucson is literally the sunniest city in the United States.

3. Aside from the Amazon Rainforest, Tucson is home to more bird species than any other region on earth.

4. American Quarter Horse Racing as we know it in the United States began at Rillito Downs in the 1940s.

5. A 1970 article in “Life Magazine” referred to Speedway Blvd. as the ugliest street in America due to the prevalence of large signage there.

6. Since the “Life Magazine” article led to the loss of a great many classic local neon signs, the Tucson Sign Code was amended in 2011 to incentivize the preservation of the same signs Tucson sought to be rid of four decades earlier.

7. The University of Arizona allowed female students to study medicine in the 1890s, long before it was common practice to do so.

8. According to the American Lung Association, Tucson has the third cleanest air of all cities nationwide.

9. Tucson is the northernmost point on the globe where you can find a jaguar. The U of A has photographed a male prowling the Santa Rita Mountains as recently as October 2012.

10. The name “Tucson” comes from the name given to Sentinel Peak (“A” Mountain) by the O’odham Tribe, Ts-iuk-shan, which basically meant that it had a base darker than its top.
