I live in Tucson now 14 years. Do not think the surrounding mountains is the only place you see snakes we got diamond back snakes i live central to east Tucson snakes here don't care where they sun bathe i came home one night to see a 15 inch baby diamond back in my front room my neighbor had one in her home too i've seen several of them one was sun bathing in my front yard another in the alley behind me. If you hike in Arizona better be prepared with proper clothing snake bite kit and plenty of ice water. People here dehydrate real quick. Different kind of heat than California. Rental prices have increased to California prices. Traffic s***s here there is only one freeway and it goes around Tucson I-10. Crime s***s here Tucson police are corrupt way too many people in Tucson.Tucson is multi cultural has many events every year lots of fine eateries it also has a huge drug problem.
I've lived in Tucson for 18 yrs. Like any other city you need to choose wisely what part of town you choose to reside. I live at the base of the Catalina Mtns and it's a beautiful view year round.
My electric bill this month was $50 and my gas bill this month was $43. I live on 1 1/2 beautiful acres with a well on my property. It's hot about 6-8 wks out of the year.
I'm originally from Texas and the heat is no worse here in the summer as where I lived in TX. Everyone should be as miserable where they live as I am in Tucson, AZ.
Oh, I forgot to mention gasoline right now 12019 is $2.34 a gallon.
I lived in Tucson in the 80's, thought it was acceptable back then.
idk ive lived here 7yrs. i exp everything you would in a typical life .........................................................................
food and the people....................................
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.
