How High Is Sedona? How High Is Tucson?

Elevation of Major Arizona Cities

By

The elevation of a city is the geographic height of that point relative to sea level. Elevations in the Greater Phoenix area don't vary all that much because the cities are close and in a valley - hence the nickname the Valley of the Sun.

Outside of central Arizona, thought, the elevations are much different than in the Valley. Keep in mind that the elevations within any city mentioned here are noted at a particular point (not at the peak of any mountain) and elevations within cities naturally vary.

It is not unusual for our northern cities at an elevation of 4,000+ feet to get snow in the winter. At our higher elevations we even have ski resorts.
