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.
It takes a car or bike to get to any of the businesses near by. There are some grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurant chains, and beauty salons near by. The restaurants are mostly all chain/fast food, and the grocery stores have been here for years. Once in a while there is a new store, but it is always in the same location. It's almost comedic because every time someone new comes, as soon as they close down a new one gets put in. People around here are used to driving to get to nicer restaurants and shops. Our area is built around peaceful living with the least amount of noise possible, so people embrace the driving knowing that it's worth it.
