These things have been discussed exhaustively very recently. They'll be super easy to find using the advanced search feature near the top of the page.

For the individual neighborhoods question, are you renting or buying? Because that makes a big difference.

You left off Dunbar Spring, Sam Hughes and West University. All those three are nice areas with things within walking distance.
Also, Catalina Vista and Blenman-Elm are two, very separate and very different neighborhoods. Catalina Vista is not very walkable to anything, but it is a very nice and very pretty neighborhood.
Pie Allen is the only area I would immediately exclude. Lots of students, lots of bad rentals. Issues with crime also.
Iron Horse also has its issues, and you should explore it a bit. It's not for everyone, but it's in an excellent location.

I would put Armory Park highest for both walkability and bus access. Purchasing general purpose items (i.e. - going to a market) will still require a bike or car ride, but this is almost every area of Tucson. Hopefully we'll get something like that in Armory Park or Downtown soon.

Tucson's a very bike-friendly and bike-oriented city, so it's more a question of what you can bike to rather than what you can walk to. If you don't bike now, you should get used to doing so.
