Hi, Tucson!

I'm Gloria, the editor of #ThisIsTucson. I want to tell you a bit about our mission.

#ThisIsTucson was founded five years ago with the goal of helping Tucsonans (and our lovely visitors) discover what to do, eat and talk about in our favorite city. Fast forward five years and our goal remains the same.

In the last five years, we’ve weaved our way through a pandemic, discovered countless hidden gems from a lavender farm in Oracle to the smallest of coffee shops, created all kinds of guides filled with the many resources in our beautiful city, and told stories of some of the coolest Tucson people we know.

You're a large part of #ThisIsTucson, too. We hope you enjoy reading our content as much as we enjoy writing it.

If you didn't know, #ThisIsTucson has a membership program that allows community members to invest in the work of our team. By contributing, you’re supporting everyone on staff — and allowing quality local journalism to thrive.

If you love what we do and find it valuable, please consider making a contribution to #ThisIsTucson here.

Your support means the world to us and we're incredibly grateful for you.

Thanks for reading,
