So, I stayed in GV for 2 1/2 days and absolutely love it there and can definitely see myself as a full-time resident. It is so clean, well kept, people are friendly and I enjoyed visiting with several of them. I asked about the mines and a local said there was nothing to worry about and when 'things happen,' the EPA is on it very fast. Oh, and I loved the Farmer's Market!! I stayed at the Vagabond, all good.

I did go down to Sierra Vista to check it out as it was on my list, but it just wasn't for me. We took highways 82 and 83 back to GV ... lovely drive.

I plan to come back in the summer if I'm still as gung-ho about moving as I am now. You guys who live there are very blessed; it's a beautiful area.

We looked at SV, Green Valley, Vail, and Oro Valley when we were out in October. We liked both GV and SV but wife in particular doesn't want to live in a retirement community and didn't think there was sufficient shopping and restaurants in GV. We both loved Oro Valley the best although that comes at a higher cost.

Thank you, bkolodzi. I absolutely felt really good about the area; it is darn near perfect! Time will tell if I follow through or not.

TallTraveler ... Yes, I can understand that for those who need malls and a wide variety of restaurants, but I don't. In fact, I truly prefer to eat at home and really don't like to shop big stores unless it's online.

I didn't check out Oro Valley as I knew it was too pricey for me. Sahaurita is nice as is Vail but in my opinion, there are too many 'sketchy' areas and I didn't find that in Green Valley.

Also, OV has temperatures more like Tucson and GV and Sahuarita are a little cooler in the summer. Maybe a few degrees in the heat does not matter, but it might.
