A Terrible Place To Live

I started this Blog to help travelers and people in tucson see what I have seen over the past 10 years, All I could find on the internet were Pictures of Mt Lemon( which is partially burnt down), The desert Museum, Sabino Canyon, Neighborhoods North of River, and Saguaro National Monument. This only represents 10% of Tucson, The majority of this town is completely run down, crime ridden, and down right disgusting.
I was born and raised here, over the past 10 years I have watched the town I once loved change astronomically, It is a terrible place to live, and an even worse town to try and raise a family.
It is a great place to live if you enjoy carrying a gun in your waist, dealing drugs, and robbing innocent people, if this is the lifestyle you choose to live than you will feel right at home here in Tucson.
The Summers are unbearable it gets to be 120 at times, with very few activities for relief, there are some resort pools to cool off at, if you can get a room, if you do they are discounted so much in the summer that the pool is filled with low life's and drunks.
There is truly no relief from the heat you are a prisoner in your own home during the day time hours, you are forced to go out at night when it is cooler, needless to say this is when the majority of thugs, gang bangers, and drug addicts roam the streets.
We do not have any sports teams to watch, everyone down here makes a huge deal about a college football team (The Wildcats) a total joke! They tailgate down by the U of A before games, it is sad to watch this town try and do it like the big boys (AZ Cardinals) up in PHX.
Tucson has a terrible problem with the homeless population, they are not like trendy homeless kids they are like, scary, drug addict mentally ill homeless people. They flock here due to the dry climate and warm winters, in the dead of summer they move into Psychiatric facilities and shelters, in the winter they roam the streets and stand on traffic islands panhandling.
If you are thinking of moving here "DO NOT DO IT" If you live here and are thinking of leaving, get out before it gets worse, or you end up dead. I will be leaving here real soon and never coming back.

Headed to the Grocery store yesterday and came across this.

Also started getting ready for bed around 8:30 last night, with the police helicopter buzzing around the house, it was constant until around 11:30. Then started up at 0300 this morning, needless to say I did not sleep well last night. The TPD police helicopter is a presence every night on the east side, however last night it seemed to never go away, I am so excited to be leaving this godforsaken place next month!


  1. That's near Pima and Rosemont, one of the worst parts of town and some of the other pics you've posted are over near Grant and First. Nicely done, only taking pictures in the worst possible neighborhoods ;)

  2. So, did you move? You sound so miserable ...

  3. You sound scared to even be outside. Quit crying and leave our city. I feel comfortable and "at home" in Tucson. Of course Tucson isn't a big entertainment city, but its home to me and my family. You sound like that annoying neighbor who complains about stuff they can't control. Get a life and move already.
