Crime in Tucson was fairly limited to various areas throughout the city. As like all other locations, schools, environment, neighborhoods all had their ups and downs. But for the most part, it was a great place to be.

Tucson was great, the weather was perfect, if you can stand dry heat and hot temperatures. Just the atmosphere there was good. You have Phoenix an hour or so away, Vegas, California, all within hours of a drive. Worked on the military base there, and it was a large area, great jobs, great people. Loved going out downtown to the city and going to the various bars, clubs.

Crime is pretty stable , living in the city you always have to be careful. The great thing about Tucson it city but town feeling. You will always run into people you know and find nice people.

The university of Arizona is the heart of the city! The basketball is Tucson gold. You will find that everywhere you go someone is wearing Arizona wildcat shirt.
