is the second most populous city in Arizona, and more and more people are moving into apartments in the area each day. Its appeal is immediately obvious to many visitors. While Tuscon is a thriving center of commerce, culture and entertainment, it's able to preserve some of the old-time charm and intimacy that many larger cities have lost somewhere in their growth. The trademark southwestern landscapes that surround the city certainly help. As residents who live outside of the city know, this charm and intimacy is heightened as travelers move to the outskirts of Tuscon and into the suburbs. Apartments in Oracle, Arizona, are set in a community with such deep ties to the area's history that these links can still be felt today.
Oracle's somewhat cryptic name comes from the name of the ship that the town's first settlers sailed on when they came to Arizona in search of gold and silver. The name stuck, as a number of profitable mines soon sprung up, causing a population boom in the 1870s. Even the legend of American folklore, Buffalo Bill Cody, owned a mine there and lived where Oracle apartments stand today. Buffalo Bill is rumored to have dressed up as Santa Claus for the local children - an early sign of the tightly woven community that would endure through the years.
Today, those who live in Oracle apartments are shaping a new identity for their beloved town. Taking on a hip attitude, the community holds an event each year called GLOW, which features various forms of artwork and takes place during a full moon.
