Yes. The east side of Tucson is the safest (pretty much anywhere east of Kolb). There are scattered neighborhoods west of Kolb that are very nice too. Sam Hughes near the university, Miramonte, Broadmoor, San Clemente, El Conquistador, and El Montevideo (all near or around the Reid Park/El Con Mall area) Blenman-Elm (northeast of Campbell/Speedway) are just a few very nice in-town neighborhoods.

There are also nice neighborhoods in the Foothills, just north of River Road. However, the Foothills aren't officially part of the city of Tucson. Also, Casas Adobes, just northwest of Tucson, is very nice as well.

These areas are all low crime.

Good luck!

Safest? Perhaps... but, just be aware of your surroundings, and watch out for the serial slasher.

Thanks, Zony . . . amazing how some people forget that EASTSIDE Nutcase (and I'm not referring to our lovely Sierra!).

As for your "broad" question, weroses . . . except for the areas in and around South Tucson and possibly Southwest Tucson, there are more safe than "less than safe" areas all over.

Enjoy your visit.

Wow, Bummer, how did it cross your mind that needs explanation in parentheses...?! My feelings are hurt!

I work in this area. Still on the loose...

Yeah, perhaps posting as we speak! Be afraid, ZP, be very afraid!

On a more serious note, the East Side is generally OK between Wilmot and Pantano... Camino Seco... (I've lived there for years; there are some less desirable pockets.) but the farther East you go the better (used to live and currently live there).

The artist's rendering makes the serial slasher look a bit effeminate, if you ask me. I wonder if either the artist is female, or the artist just came as close to what was described as possible?
