I have lived I the neighborhood for six years and can honestly say that I love my surrounding neighbors and the pride they take in caring for their homes. That pride has made the neighborhood look and feel a lot cleaner and safer these past years. Although, it sucks to see some neighbors who would rather go on social media and complain about their neighbors or the neighborhood rather than talk in person and get to know them, which happens a lot nowadays.

Tucson is very hot, but you get used to it really fast. When you do, Tucson is awesome. When it's hot, have a beer on a patio. And don't miss monsoon season when everyday is like an amazing lightshow by the Gods, including rad thunderstorms.
Tucson has a unique style of its own, distinct even from the rest of Arizona. It can seem a little funky, but it's full of great vibes, very chill. Very suburban, but in a way that doesn't bother me too much, and I hate suburbs.
