Tucson, AZ is definitely a university town. Everything is oriented around the U of A, which is okay. But that means that the rest of the city doesn't get the same upkeep as the school does. Tucson is a very poor city with potholes in its roads, a lot of unemployed people, and dilapidated houses everywhere you go. This city has so much potential to be great. The downtown metro area is so beautiful with a lightrail running through the veins of the city, loft apartmetns above restaurants and bars, and there's always an interesting event going on. Tucson is a very quirky town, no doubt. And as far as living here again? Well, perhaps not if it weren't for school. Nonetheless, I'm glad I got to experience all this city has had to offer me.

I'd give it a general rating in the sense that it is a nice area that has local restaurants and stores and is adjacent to the University of Arizona. While living here my home was burgled where just my jewelry was stolen, which gives me the perception that it was drug addicts looking for a quick dollar. Frequently I saw suspicious characters walking through the streets with large backpacks and it just made me feel unsafe. I had to get a gym membership rather than do exercise outside. Traffic is also an issue in this area as it is a high volume area with many businesses and schools, making it difficult to travel. I enjoyed my neighborhood and the house I lived in, it was a beautiful house with a serene and exceptional garden area. I certainly would live in the house again.
The streets in this entire area are the worse. The city has started to fix them, but the process is slow and very superficial since heavy rain will create more potholes. There are no concrete sidewalks where I live and the curbs are not colored coded so it is not visible where you can and cannot park your car.
