Benson is the fourth largest municipality in Cochise County, located approximately 45 miles southeast of Tucson, along Interstate 10, AZ 80 and AZ 90, and the main line of the Union Pacific Railroad. Of the county’s seven municipalities, Benson is projected to see the fastest population growth to 2050, due in large part to the Villages at Vigneto, a 28,000-home and commercial development slated to break ground in 2019. Benson is home to Kartchner Caverns State Park – named best cave in the nation by USA Today – which attracts thousands of visitors annually. The city also has the only AMTRAK passenger station in the county.
