I would appreciate feedback on my question. I will be looking to commute from Tucson to Nogales for work and I was wondering if anybody in this forum does this now? If so, please let me know because I would like to locate a carpool group....

Dont know about a car pool group to Nogales but its an easy drive from Sahuarita... all highway at 75+ MPH and its about 30 miles away. You can hit the border in less than half an hour.

As for Sahuarita, mainly Rancho Sahuarita, its very nice and incredibly family friendly. The community is always clean, HOA does a good job keeping up with people and poor lawn maintenance, the schools are great and the community center is full of stuff to do monthly. Even small things like a family movie night where they have a large blow up screen and projector to show movies on the lawn. You bring the blanket and chairs and they provide hot dogs and popcorn. Also, teh pool/waterpark is awesome in the summer. Whoever said Sahuarita is empty was obviously in teh wrong place. There is a brand new marketplace with a food store, Gas station, McDonalds, barber, restaurant(very soon) and a few small busineses. Its growing fast and there are plans for a home depot in the next two years. Also, it takes me less than 10 minutes to get to southern Tucson where there is endless stuff. Chili's, wal-mart, lowes, home depot, movies... everything.

thank you
My opinion is that Sahuarita is a difficult word to spell for most people - especially snowbirds and slackers.

On the other hand, Sierrita (sometimes confused with Sahuarita) is a little bit easier to spell.

its funny, if you every read the paper... its just filled with locals writing in about how upset they are that everyone pronounces the city name wrong, haha. But the up side to that is that ther eis no real crime or anything else to write about so thats what we get. But honestly, I love living in Sahuarita. Its great.

There is, however, a plan to build an interstate bypass that will go through Sahuarita and up the westside of Tucson. What kind of impact that will have on the city I really dont know. No construction will be started for atleast 8 years they say.

Of course, if you think Sahuarita is hard to pronounce, how about being a newbie trying to make Huachuca City or Ft Huachuca your home?
