Quality of Life

Our quality of life is simply superb!

Cochise County's business environment is enhanced by a beautiful year-round climate with an average temperature of 75°F. Wide-open plains and mountain reaches provide a cool respite from searing summer heat in other parts of the state. The high elevations bring mild summers and temperate winters and the landscape responds with beauty and abundance. Cochise County attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year who come to experience the region's rich cultural history and myriad outdoor recreational opportunities, including:

  • Several golf courses set around community living
  • Picturesque outdoor environment perfect for hiking, camping, birding, fishing
  • Four hospitals and several clinics providing comprehensive health care
  • Planned growth with new home developments and amenities to fit any lifestyle
  • Higher education campuses throughout the county
