I've lived here in Green Valley, Arizona since 2006. The dry desert air and spectacular surrounding mountain views are good for physical and mental health. The only reason to drive to Tucson is Trader Joe's. Everything else I need is right here in Green Valley: inexpensive housing, lower-than-average cost of living, excellent doctors and hospital, good restaurants, big/chain and Mom&Pop stores, river valley with beautiful walking/bicycling trails, nearby mountain trails, and nearby art and history of Tubac. I've lived in New York City, San Diego, Los Angeles and Hawaii, and I like Green Valley the best!

Green valley isn't the best. But the tucson area is great for retiring.
We visited green valley, thinking of moving. But ended up looking at a couple communities on north side of tucson.
And WOW. Great choices.
Saddlebrooke being our favorite. The mountain views, golf courses and amenities put all to shame in comparison. Green valley is nice but ...
Green valley is a quiet sleepy town suitable for young families family or for those looking for a town to retire in. The greatest benefit is the Sprouts grocery store and Culver's. However, there are not that many restaurants in the area.
