Tanque Verde Guest RanchTucson's northeast area is situated between the Santa Catalina Mountains and the Rincon mountains, terminating on the east near Redington Pass. Northeast of the city limits is the community of Tanque Verde, the Arizona National Golf Club, Forty-Niners Country Club, and the historic Tanque Verde Guest Ranch.

The name of the area, which means "green tank," is a reference to the algae in a large and prominent stock water tank in the area in the late 19th century. Now, Tanque Verde has become an affluent community, with a significant equestrian presence. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Tanque Verde has the highest median household income of any city or community in southern Arizona, and one of the highest in Arizona.
