What do you like about Tucson? The people are generally pretty friendly, and the natural surroundings are unique and beautiful.
What do you dislike about Tucson? People tend to be slightly lazy and uneducatated, although not exactly stupid.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Around the University of Arizona, and 4th Avenue.
How expensive is it? That depends on what part of the town you\'re in. Generally Tucson\'s relatively inexpensive, but in the Catalina Foothills, prices go up a bit.
Is it safe? Although I hear stories in the news now and then about tragic things happening in Tucson, I\'ve never felt threatened or scared.
How is the weather? Between mid-april and late august, the weather is simply unbearable. However, in the dead of winter, residents rarely have to wear more than a jacket.
Additional thoughts? Tucson is definately an acquired taste. A lot of people who move here hate it and a handful think it\'s the greatest city ever - there aren\'t very many people who\'s opinions are somewhere in between.

What do you like about Tucson? Beautiful desert, many cultures, arts, university, hiking, weather, smaller town feel with city amenities.
What do you dislike about Tucson? Freeway system is horrible, not growing with city = horrific traffic
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? UofA, 4th ave/downtown, Mt. Lemmon, Sabino Canyon, Saguaro National Park...so many places to see inside and outside.
How expensive is it? Relatively inexpensive, although the investor problem is very true. Home prices have outrun wages.
Is it safe? Depends on the area. There is gang and drug activity, as is everywhere. Some areas are much safer than others.
How is the weather? Beautiful! The summer gets a little warm, especially during monsoon season (~July-Sept) but the rain is so worth the heat! I love it.
Additional thoughts? Wow, the comments regarding education, laziness, etc. are a bit harsh! I have had many experiences in Tucson and other cities with both the educated as well as the uneducated. They're everywhere! Tucson/Arizona has a high population of Hispanics/Latinos who have lived here for generations as well as recent immigrants and many illegals. This accounts for the large percentage of "uneducated" although that hardly equates to "stupid" and definitely not lazy. Sadly, money leads to education, and those without do without. There is a highly educated population in Tucson of all races, and because it is a university town...there are many well-educated residents. So if that is what you are looking for, you don't have to look far. Those complaining otherwise might try getting involved...(in different circles??) with the many college and university opportunities, museums, local cultural opportunities (the Yaqui and Tohono O'odham Reservations have many interesting sites), etc. It's all out there!
