I moved last year from Tucson to Tampa Florida and have been missing Tucson ever since. My son graduates from college in November and I am really thinking hard of moving back to Tucson after he is done school. I didnt think I would miss it that much but, boy I was wrong!!!!

Once you've left, I think you have to reapply for statesmanship . Heck, we haven't even moved there full-time yet (June!) and I already miss it, so much that I'm taking two weeks at spring break to come out and "do some work around the house".

I left in 2005 for personal reasons, and have always missed it, but i experienced so much trauma and pain that i knew i couldnt stay. I knew there might come a time when i could return because Tucson is really reflective of all the things i need in a place to live, that fullfills my needs for diversity, creativity, desert weather and lifestyle, PROGRESSIVE ANND ENGAGING PEOPLE, INTELLIGENT, PROVOCATIVE, STRONG LOCAL ACTIVISM, KXCI- Community supported variety of awesome musc, shows, local events.
I so need to grow and begin to live again. . I need to be stimulated by people who know and care about things that matter to me, and not just complain!

I left Tucson in the early 1980's and miss it very much. Yet, I'm not sure that I could recover what I miss by moving back. It is a different city now, and rather past its prime, I'm afraid. If I had a time-capsule that I could set for 1970, Tucson would probably be my #1 destination.

You're absolutely right. Stay away, the Tucson of the 70's is long dead. Many changes have happened, most for the worst. Enjoy where you're at, without regrets.

I can't picture many metropolitan areas that are still locked into the 70's so I'm not sure it's a valid argument to make that the "good old days" are gone. Besides, the OP has been gone for a year, not half a century so I really doubt much has changed in the last twelve months . For those that grew up here and then moved away for a long period of time, I'm sure they would have to reevaluate the city and lifestyle before moving back.

I've lived all over the country, my wife has lived all over the world. I've never found the "perfect" place to live but on the surface, Tucson comes closer than anywhere else. Five years from now, perhaps I'll feel differently or not even be living here any longer.
