Over the years, Arizona has become a very popular place for people looking to relocate. Although the thought of living in the desert may not be appealing to some, many of Arizona’s cities have proven to be great places to live. While Phoenix usually gets most of the attention, Tucson Arizona is another major city that’s worth considering. Tucson has a lot to offer people of all ages, and it has a constantly growing population. However, there are other things about Tucson that might not be so appealing. So, what’s it like to live in Tucson? Before you move to any place, there are always a few things you should know about the place you’re going to be calling home. Read on to learn about 5 things you should know about living in Tucson Arizona.

Dry heat

Of course, everyone knows that Arizona is hot, but dry heat isn’t something that everyone is used to. In some ways, dry heat is better than humidity, but once the temperature reaches 100 degrees or more (which it will in Tucson) you’re going to flat-out feel hot. With that being said, the heat is something you’ll definitely want to keep in mind if you’re thinking about heading out to Tucson Arizona.

Beautiful scenery 

Since the city is surrounded by mountains, Tucson Arizona is full of beautiful natural scenery. If you’re the type of person who likes to get outside and enjoy nature, you’ll enjoy the many parks and hiking trails that you’ll find throughout Tucson.

Plenty of things to do

Finding things to do in Tucson Arizona definitely won’t be much of a challenge. The city is full of amenities and there are lots of options when it comes to finding fun and interesting activities. Between things like live music, shopping, and fine dining you can feel confident that you won’t be bored if you decide to move to Tucson.

Cost of living

The cost of living is one of the first things people think about when moving to a new place. Let’s be real, we all want to save money whenever we can. Unfortunately, Tucson isn’t the most affordable place to live. However, it’s not quite expensive either. The cost of living in Tucson is slightly lower than both the state and national averages.

Friendly community

If you’ve ever moved to a new place, you know how hard it can be to make friends – or just meet people in general. The good news is that people in Tucson Arizona have a reputation for being friendly, so getting out and connecting with people might be as scary as you think.
