Green Valley is located in Pima County south of Tucson between Tucson and Nogales along Interstate 19 near the Coronado National Forest and the San Xavier Indian Reservation.
Green Valley is part of the Tucson, Arizona metro area.
Voted one of the best places to retire by a national magazine, Green Valley offers abundant recreation, in the rural Santa Cruz River Valley overlooking a mountain range. Located at an elevation of 2,900 feet, Green Valley is rich in history and boasts more than 300 sunny days a year. The high elevation assures a much cooler climate than Tucson or Phoenix. Annual temperatures average 80 degrees during the daytime and 50 degrees at night, making the area a major attraction for visitors who come to enjoy outdoor activities all year long.
Green Valley occupies what was once part of a vast Spanish Land grant given to New Spain by the Spanish Crown in the late 16th century.
