Thank you so much for your input! Do you feel the crime everyone is talking about is from away enough from Catalina Foothills?
Thank you

In Tucson, it doesn't matter how far away from the crime you are...but if you are north of River, you are pretty much guaranteed a safe area. South of River, there are random pockets of high crime spread throughout the city and random pockets of very safe areas. The highest concentration of crime is in South Tucson, along Miracle Mile and the vicinity of it, and certain areas near downtown. The best thing to do if you have questions about crime concentration is look at the crime maps posted on the Tucson Police Dept.'s website.

thanks again!
It's a good area. More affluent than most parts of town and it does have it's share of retirees.

We moved to the area in April. We live in Sahuarita and LOVE it! It had the small town feel near the (somewhat) big city! I love the schools--very family friendly--, and there is lots to do! I'm very happy with our decision!
