Just wondering if anyone knows anything about Sierra Vista. How would the commute be between there and Tucson? How's the crime, housing (specifically, is there anything available for people younger than 55?).

Any info would be great.

Default Seirra Vista

Seirra Vista is wonderful. VERY low crime. Central to many outdoor activities. We live near Benson, so we drive to SV just for shopping (less traffic than Tucson) and we love to go to, "The Cove" a huge indoor pool with 2 water slides, a beach and outdoor diving pool. Not to mention their wave machine and holiday parties.

I shop for food at Food City there-tons of great produce and tortillas

SV is beautiful.

Sierra Vista is awesome! I was stationed at Ft. Huachuca. As far as night life goes, there isn't much except Texas Annies which is a real redneck bar. Your best bet would be to go to Tuscon which is about 50 mins from SV. The housing is cheap compared to Maryland, and SV is basically a military town but there are more contractors coming in so there are plenty of young people. Check out Bisbee when you get there, very cool old town, and there is the biggest rock quarry I've ever seen just south of bisbee.

Enjoy SV, if it doesn't change its my retirement destination.

SV is nice, very laid back, not a ton to do in the way of restaurants, attractions, or night life, but it's less than an hour from Tucson which has a little variety there. Housing is good, it's defiantly a military town, but it's growing, with a lot of major retailers going there in the next year. Crime is pretty low, but it's growing with the illegal immigrant problem, being that close to the border (but so is all of Southern AZ). The commute to east Tucson is probably 45 minutes at worst, longer if you're in the middle of town as I-10 only skirts the outside of Tucson, so you're at the mercy of the stoplights if you're in town at all. But overall, I prefer SV to Tucson.
