Located 25 miles south of Tucson, the town of Sahuarita is earning a reputation as one of top places to live in the United States in 2015, according to Money.

Thanks to a booming population and local economy, job growth resides at 11.1 percent with a median home price settling in at just over $174,000, making Sahuarita both practical and affordable for those looking to get away from from the hustle and bustle of a larger metropolitan area.

Below is what the website had to say about Sahuarita and its offerings.

Sahuarita isn’t just one of Arizona’s fastest growing communities. It’s one of the fastest growing in the country. The population has swelled from 3,200 in 2000 to over 25,000 today — a 780% leap — thanks to a combination of affordable housing and an almost-painless, 20-minute commute to central Tucson. Sahuarita is also close to major regional employers Raytheon Missile Systems, the University of Arizona Science and Technology Park, Freeport McMoRan, and Asarco. In an effort to boost its growth further, Sahuarita charges no impact fees, business license fees, or property taxes. Yet despite the influx of new residents, Sahuarita has retained a generous supply of open space. Sahuarita Lake Park contains a 10-acre lake surrounded by grassy areas, walking paths, and an amphitheater. Several other parks and 17 miles of trails dot the town as well — which is a very good thing. After all, Sahuarita also boasts 300 sunny days a year.
