    What do you like about Tucson? User-friendly, easy to live in. Wages are low but so are rents. It's unpretentious. Phoenix tried to make itself pretty but it turned out horrific. Tucson doesn't even bother and it's fine.

    What do you dislike about Tucson? Soaring house prices without wage increases. Thanks jerky Californians! Also, Californians who move in, price locals out of their own house market, and then try to gain influence with city councilmembers and others to change the city to their liking. GET THE F--- OUT!
    What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? 4th Ave., downtown, West Campus, swap meet.
    How expensive is it? Compared to other places, cheap. But that crap doesn't matter because it's people HERE who have to try to buy a $270k house on 1998's wages thanks to all the outside investors going on a feeding frenzy here.
    Is it safe? For the most part yes.
    How is the weather? I like it just fine. The heat doesn't bug me the way it apparently ruins other people's lives.
    Additional thoughts? I love Tucson but I seem to be in the minority. Californians with money seem to love it as long as they can mold it the way they want to, which has the effect of making the city suck just a little bit more every year.
