Tucson is located in Pima County and it is the county seat. It lies southeast of Phoenix between Casa Grande and Nogales, along Interstate 10. The city also is near the Santa Cruz River and the Coronado National Forest.
Spanish settlers appeared in the late 1770s, and the city was founded in 1776. Tucson became a military border post for New Spain, Mexico, and finally, the United States. The railroad arrived in 1880.
Today, Tucson is a rapidly growing transportation and tourist center. The city's industries include electronics, optics, and research. Tucson also is a processing and distribution hub for cotton, livestock, and mining. A fiesta and rodeo are held here each February. Tucson is home to the University of Arizona campus.
