It's the prestigious city with a lots of attraction rather than any other region in Tanzania. It's the only region where there are more than three most largest national parks.The region also present pleantful air view from Meru which has easy view in north-east of city center.

It is surrounded by some of Africa's most famous landscapes and national parks (e.g. Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, and Mount Kilimanjaro). The City is situated at the foot of Mount Meru (4,566 m or 14,980 ft). Elevation at the City level is 1,400m.The climate in Arusha is therefore pleasantly cool year-round. During the meeting, we can expect average temperatures to range from 16°C to 24°C in the day and night, respectively. ... More There will be little to no chance of rain. The proximity of Arusha to world renowned tourist destinations and the nearby presence of Arusha National Park and Mount Meru make the City a popular tourist hub.The City has a population of approximately 300,000 people and is also an important administrative centre for regional and continental activities. Arusha hosts the headquarters for the East African Community and the African Court on Human and People´s Rights.

Arusha is characterized by Masai warriors, in full regalia, and a busy market displaying Masai craftsmanship. You’ll also find the local clock tower here at the midpoint between Cairo and Cape Town.
Between Kilimanjaro and Meru is theArusha National Park. It has a range of habitats: from lakes where water birds gather to the summit of Mt. Meru.>
Visit the Arusha Declaration Monument Museum for a glimpse of the Tanzanian freedom struggle. Don’t miss the National Natural History Museum and its display of the Laetoli Footprints, set in volcanic ash, dating ... More 3,500,000 years ago.
Every year on the first Sunday of August, international and local athletes participate in the Mount Meru International Marathon.   
Arusha is known for its lively music scene, especially Tanzanian hip-hop, a blend of Maasai and Swahili influences with western music, known as Bongo Flava.  You can catch a bit of this at popular local clubs like Colobus and the Blue Tripple ‘A’.

Arusha is situated at the foot of Mount Meru in northern Tanzania. It has a population of 270,485 inhabitants.

The city experiences a temperate climate. With two wet seasons, March-May and October-December, the best time to visit is June-September.
Established in 1900 as a German garrison, today, Arusha’s economy is based on agriculture and tourism. 

Expeditions to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, and Mount Kilimanjaro National Park all begin at Arusha. The famous Masai tribe make up a majority of the local population.

The best town in Tanzania but very expensive. Security for tourists is kind of scary. But generally people are friendly. As far as accomodation is concerned, very good.

The city is beatiful, because of its attractive parks; when you are in this place you will feel like staying here forever, the government should make sure that the transportation and safety of the city is good.
