Oro Valley where Barbara lives is located just 12 miles northwest of Tucson where it lies between the spectacular Santa Catalina Mountains and the rugged saguaro-studded Tortolita Mountains. This upscale community of around 40,000 people is a magical place where you will be awestruck by majestic terrain, a resort lifestyle and Arizona’s famed sunsets. The purple colors on the Catalina Mountains at sunset will remind you of the lyrics of “America the Beautiful” which proclaim “for purple mountain majesties.”

Known as the "Scottsdale of Tucson,” Oro Valley is home to 5 major golf clubs: the El Conquistador Country Club, the Golf Club at Vistoso, the Oro Valley Country Club, the Stone Canyon Club and Sun City Vistoso. The 2 main Zip Codes are 85737 in the central part and 85755 in the northern part. With a new medical center, Oro Valley has become home to an emerging tech and bio-tech industry. Oro Valley offers a relaxing and family-friendly environment that attracts retirees and winter visitors alike.

Oro Valley is a planned community which supports protecting access to the dark night sky by requiring low level lighting (Tucson is home to Kitt Peak National Observatory). The Oro Valley Zoning Code stesses “the preservation of the Town’s residential/resort character, support of astronomical activity, minimizing excessive use of energy, and providing for the safety and security of persons engaged in outdoor night time activities.”
