Some employees can be rude sometimes in certain stores. Overall, not everywhere is hiring. Summer is especially busy and nearly no one is hiring in fast food chains especially where college students could get easy access to.

There are local gyms but with people's busy schedules, I feel that there is more people that buy equipment to use at home to beat the weather on some days and most of the summer. Not many overweight people I see in my neighborhood. Though we love that there is Tucson Medical center and doctors to choose from.
Personally, we've never experienced a flood. There are some potholes on some streets but not enough to complain year-round. Tucson needs the rain because it is generally a hot, dry city.
