Contemplating a move for retirement, winter-visiting, or just relocating to a warmer climate?

I Got Here As Soon As I Could!

In the summer of 2009, AARP Magazine named Tucson Arizona #1 in its top ten best place to live a simple life. Criteria such as low cost of living, geographic diversity, walk-ability, low crime, & outdoor accessibility all played a factor in the selection.
 
Personally, I think being surrounded by mountain vistas and gorgeous sunsets can't help but to convince any short term visitor into making arrangements for something more permanent!  Add that to 300+ days of sunshine, golf courses everywhere, low-maintenance yard care, and friendly people -- and you've got a wonderful place to think about retiring to, having a vacation home, or just plain SWDesert relocation.
 
Here's a quick link to over 150 properties available at Active Adult communities around Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley and Vail, Arizona.
 
As I stopped for an intersection yesterday, I pulled up behind this car, and I thought it summed it up perfectly:

As someone who relocated to Tucson herself in 2000, I'm happy to share my favorite spots and haunts around town!

If you'd like detailed search criteria compiled for you in an online search, sent to your personal email to peruse at your leisure, let's talk.

I'm happy to share this fair city with you.  Give us a look.  I look back on my last 11 years here, and am glad I got here as soon as I could!

It's hard to beat the weather in the winter- not so sure about the summer. It is beautiful though!

Suzanne - I love Northern Texas with the trees - but it's been years!  It's on my list to see San Antonio by taking the passenger train across.

Kristi - Colorado Springs is certainly lovely as well!  But if you want to escape snow, Tucson is where it's at!

Glenn - I prefer the lack of humidty than other areas with lots of sun.  I'm just happy we don't have days over overcast skies and drizzle.  I don't miss that!  I DO miss Mt. Raineer!

Hi Jane - just an 8 hour drive - with a lot less traffic!

Richard - thanks for your questions - I posted on some Phoenix-Tucson differences just this morning.  I've noticed that folks moving from East or West Coast find our taxes quite an improvement.  Those moving from the midwest - not so much.  Home prices are INCREDIBLE if you're looking to buy -- it's just a challenging time to sell if you purchased your home in the past 5 years.

GOOD MORNING CARA!  That's my mother-in-laws car!  NO I am only kidding - the car is but the plate isn't! I just read a report indicating that many people are packing up from California and moving to ... Tucson!  --G
