AMARG is located in the city of Tucson, Arizona, USA. Arizona is a south western state which borders Mexico. One of the reasons that the facility was developed here is the dry, arid environment which exists in the area all year round.
Tucson is located in the very south of Arizona, approximately 70 miles from the Mexican border.
Sitting at the base of the Santa Catalina mountains, Mount Lemmon at 9,157 feet high dominates the views and can be seen in many of the pictures on this web site. Inevitably the mountains attract the rains and thunderstorms, especially in the monsoon season (July/August) during the afternoon. Although the rains during this period can be heavy they are usually short in duration.
Apart from AMARG, Pima Air & Space Museum and the aviation scrapyards there are many other things to see and do in the Tucson area. If you'd like to find out more about Tucson and Arizona we would recommend using the Visit Tucson web site or the Google search engine.
