Best time to visit Tucson, AZ, USA?

  • We recommend visiting Tucson during the early winter when temperatures are still mild and weather is still dry but hotels are more affordable. For a small rental, expect to pay approximately $105 per night during this period. That's 25% less than what you would have paid in February. Temperatures hover in the low 50s, a few degrees colder than the average 60°F you would experience during high season.
  • Most people travel to Tucson in the winter/early spring. This is peak season so expect to pay more for your hotel room. You should also try avoiding the Gem Show week (January 27th to February 12th) and the Holiday week (December 23rd to January 1st), accommodations get particularly expensive during these dates.
  • Expect some rain if you visit Tucson in July, there are 23 days with precipitation on average.
