Discover the community


Vail is the center of future growth and development in the Metro Tucson Area. The school district has been rated one of the best in the State. Although Vail covers a large East, Southeast area of the Tucson Metroplex, access to the city center, Davis Monthan Air Force base and many shopping opportunities are convenient and traffic seems to be less congested. Home of two National Parks, Colossal Cave, and Saguaro National Monument East, Vail has many recreational opportunities for all age groups.  Here is a short video on the future growth in Vail.
