We have friends who are planning to move there in a year or two; they are in their 70's. They like the artistic vibe of downtown, it's walkability. Their anecdotal experience is not one of a dangerous place but if you read the statistics you will get a different view.

I have lived in Tucson part time for about 12 years. Have lived in a house on the East side, sold it, and now live in an apartment a little east of center. My apartment is a 940 square foot 2 bedroom 2 bath in a gated community with on-site management. Cost is $740/month including water and hot water. With internet and heat my total cost is less than $900/month.

I have traveled to Phoenix many times. Would not want to live there. Tucson is a much more outdoor casual feel, with many more opportunities to do outdoor things.

If you want more information let me know how to reach you privately and I would be glad to give you as much info as I can. I know good gyms, good personal trainers, great hikes, good restaurants, good social organizations, etc etc.
