Green Valley

Your Next Hometown

Abundant sunshine, the breathtaking beauty of the Sonoran Desert and Santa Rita Mountains, affordable homes, and unlimited opportunities for active adults are just some of the reasons Green Valley, Arizona is being hailed as one of the best places to retire in the US. Situated in Southern Arizona, just 20 miles south of Tucson’s cultural and practical amenities, Green Valley is a small (population 24,000, in season), quiet, easy-living community. Love wine? Horseback riding? Birding? Bicycling? Heritage and culture? Sports? The arts? Unique cuisine? Outdoor recreation? Golf? Hobbies and crafts? Cards? Invigorating learning opportunities? Day-tripping or RVing? Volunteering for a good cause? Green Valley is your place.

Unlike planned resort communities, Green Valley is comprised of neighborhoods—Home Owner’s Associations—as diverse as those in any town. From collections of small, very affordable “casitas” to 2,500 square-foot contemporary houses overlooking fairways, Green Valley has a home for every wallet and preference. No matter which neighborhood suits you, very nearby will be a recreation center, golf course, swimming pool, walking path, bikeway, classroom, studio, house of worship, meeting room, or community garden where Green Valley comes together for fun and connection. Retirement is a whole new start on life in Green Valley—your next hometown.
