Located at the bottom of beautiful Pusch Ridge within the Santa Catalina Moutain range. It was once home of the Hohokam Native Americans 500 AD. During the 16th century the Apache Native Americans hunted and lived here during when the Spanish Conquistadors explored this area. She remained at cattle crazing land till the 60's.
During the 1960's when some folks didn't want to live in the Tuscon city limits, started to settle this area and in 1974 it was incorporated as a city. Oro Valley was even voted in 2008 as one of the best places to live. I can understand why with its very upscaled trendy shoping, restaurants, and homes. We felt very safe here.
