This usually starts an uproar on here, Jennifer, but . . . any area north of Speedway or possibly Broadway should be fine.

Oro Valley and Marana are very nice areas and I would think jobs in your field should be fairly easy to find.

Good Luck

Well, I'm not planning on starting an uproar , but there are many exceptions to this general rule. Let's not forget that Grant & Alvernon, Miracle Mile, and many other "lovely" places like this are North of Broadway, while SE is South of Broadway... There's plenty written on the subject, though, so if anybody's interested, they can read.

Yikes, they did get the weather right today...

Ya got me on those areas, Sierra!

Ok, Jennifer . . . maybe you'd better stick with Oro Valley until you're more familiar with Tucson.
