Santa Cruz County is located in the southernmost central part of Arizona, bordering Sonora, Mexico and serving as the gateway to the Nogales Port of Entry. We're one of Arizona's most diverse and interesting destinations, offering an eclectic blend of history, culture, art, recreation, shopping, cuisine and entertainment in a beautiful and relaxing setting.
Each of our communities has its own unique personality, from the twin border cities of Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Mexico to the mountain, artist, and birding town of Patagonia to the thriving residential community of Rio Rico to Arizona's wine country in Sonoita and Elgin to the artist colony of Tubac (home of Tubac Presidio State Historic Park) to Tumacacori-Carmen (home of Tumacarori National Historic Park) to Patagonia Lake, Peña Blanca Lake, and everything in between (including our small-town communities of Amado, Byerville, and Kino Springs). Santa Cruz County will intrigue, stimulate and satisfy the senses.
