I love it here! It is quiet and feels safe in every neighborhood. The thing that I love most is that it is not directly in Tucson, so there is not a lot of traffic and feels like a small town.

The Northeast side and the Foothills are definitely the better parts of Tucson. The schools are great and its very quiet. There are plenty of hiking areas that are absolutely beautiful. The population almost doubles in the winter since it is such a top choice for snowbirds. The winters here are very nice, whereas the summers can get up in the triple digits. However the monsoons brings nice rain which cools it down quit a bit.
I grew up in the neighborhood that I am in and it is amazing. The crime rate is extremely low, the houses are just far enough apart to allow privacy but without feeling isolated. It's peaceful and quiet at times, but also warm and inviting. As an engaged woman, my future family and I are so excited to live in the same area.
