The area is wonderful. It's extremely close to the University of Arizona, while still maintaining a quiet atmosphere. I am a serious student and peace is really necessary in those crucial studying moment. The area is surprisingly not rowdy with college students. It also has this nice small town feel to it. I am originally from the city and I can't explain just how much I love the area.

Every street has shops, restaurants, gyms, bars, art spaces, antique stores, nurseries, and everything is so close that you don't need a car if you don't want one. I recently moved back to Arizona from Texas and, upon arriving to Phoenix, I was in discontent. Sure, it's a huge city with a ton of activities to do, but everything is so spread out. I was missing that small town feeling. It only took me one an afternoon and evening in Tucson to find it again. All within 5 miles are some of the best places to go with great food, amazing music venues with some of the biggest artists stopping by, not to mention the outdoor recreational activities just a short drive away.
The local businesses are mostly mom-and-pop shops but they are very welcoming to the students at the University near them, providing good jobs and flexible schedules.
