i live in sedona, have a house and business,but am tired of the lack of night-life and shallow dating pool. I am trying to experiment with living both places seasonally. I started going to Tucson to play @ 2 years ago, and have had great fun. I grew up in Houston, and lived in Seattle for 6 years. I have met great people in Tucson, , find it almost as creative and kinda like Austin, but with beautiful areas in every direction.(the real west)...It is a great music city, and for me seems to have 10 times more talent local and touring than Phoenix....i am shocked to hear people prefer Phoenix as a cultural city. Phoenix seems to be the absoloutely most soulless, depressing "material culture ", boring large city i have been in on any continent. If all you care @ is your car, your haircut, and the latest plastic surgery Phoenix seems to be the place. ( I still try, and go to events like the artwalk in Phx)...I have been to the last 2 DOD/All Soul's parades in Tucson and find it incredibly inspiring. Also love the gem show events/ celebrations.I certainly do not want to go back to living with crime, and realize that many parts of Tucson look ghetto, but most people i know as victims of crime seem to have had mostly petty property incidents. I want a place a little bit in the desert and also not too far from town. Any suggestions???

My suggestion is that you try the sections of NW Tucson known as Flowing Wells or Casas Adobes. Sprawl and transportation are the big problems with Tucson. Tucson never embraced the inner-city freeway model that the Valley did, and so getting around in a car is horrible. When I lived there I only owned a bicycle and I loved it. Tucson is getting quite crowded these days, but if you don't know what it used to be like and just accept it for how you find it, it might suit you well. To me, the whole southern strip of Arizona that was acquired in the Gadsden Purchase has a very different vibe than the areas to the north. List materialistic California wannabe cities. More Hispanic influence and more likely to conserve the traditions of the past, so there is somewhat of an older feel to Tucson as compared to Phoenix.

As I mentioned in another post, for a "deserty" feel a little outside of town, I recommend looking just west of the Tucson mountains - Avra Valley, Picture Rocks, Marana...I like it back there and may yet move out there.

There are so many homes for sale now in Oro Valley...I just moved into the Copper Creek development and every where I turn are 4 Sale signs...The Villages is a really nice area too, and gated.
