Sahuarita is exceedingly safer than general Tucson and an am=azing place to raise a family. People who live in Rancho Sahuarita are exposed to a list of amenities such as a gym, pool, fitness classes, tennis courts, and monthly events that build a more unified community. Those who move to Sahuarita come for the suburban feel, many parks, and excellent extra curricular schools. Sahuarita has a lot of potential and would benefit greatly from an increase in dine in restaurants and establishments for teens to have fun. There isn't many places where teenagers can meet up and play games .

I’m fortunate to live in Sahuarita 20+ years. Growth includes several options for grocery shopping and dining out but is still lacking in regards to entertainment. In reference to housing in the area I’d like to note that while Rancho Sahuarita is one of the larger developments in the area, there is plenty of old construction and new construction neighborhoods that are present and part of Sahuarita as well. These offer a variety of options from no HOA, limited amenities and fHOA, to very high HOA fees and many amenities. A new hospital and library are under construction.
My husband and I chose Sahuarita as our 'Forever Home' after years in the military (USMC). We love the small-town feel and the first-class amenities (we live in Rancho). I love seeing families bike, and children walk to and from school. There is always a small movie, concert, or festival going on and there are just the right amount of sports/art/extra-curricular activities around the area. There's a bit of a commute into Tucson (20 minutes), but the people are pretty awesome.
