Twenty years ago this town was smaller, more liberal, more creative and diverse. Since then, too much development, too much influx from other states (Californication) and destruction of natural resources. Schools are a disaster due to draconian politics and budget cuts by the state legislature and ultraconservative politics, including charters and privatization. Treatment of Latinos/Latinas and Hispanics has been horrible. Cuts in budget and taxes means crumbling infrastructure; ineffective city government run by developers with no citizen oversight.
Depending on the location you're in while in Tucson, it can either be very nice or not nice at all. The types of people around Tucson differ from one person to the next, and it really depends on where in Tucson you are. Aside from negativity seen in certain areas, there are great people, amazing doctoral offices, and the scenery is gorgeous.
Just like every place in the United States, there is crime that happens around Tucson. However, it does seem to be gradually improving. There are always police seen around the main and residential streets, so I always feel safe and confident if/when I need their assistance.
