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.

Nail In The Coffin!!

I just finished reading the Sunday paper there was an article in there that made me very uneasy, There is talk about closing Davis Monthan Air Force Base, if this happens this would be the complete end of Tucson, If the base closes or loses it's core functions it will cause an economic shock to Tucson. Imagine 7,000 or 8,000 local homes quickly going vacant. The base is Tucson's third-largest employer it plays the same economic role as a steel mill in a rust belt city, bringing outside money in to the community, as apposed to simply recirculating money the way a retailer does. If you think it is bad here now just wait it will look like similar to Detriot in no time. Do not move here if you live here and have ever thought of leaving do so before it is to late!! Everyone I talk to that is stationed at the base puts in for a transfer, they hate it here also..

  1. omg. no. If they close this we're doomed.

    I hate Tucson. It really has potential as far as the environment and beautiful desert... but the urban-ness SUCKS. it's a home for trashy people

  3. I lived in tucson 24 years and it never felt like home. Fortunately I was able to sell my house in 2002 before the bubble really burst and moved back to New York. I tried, I really did but tucson is just not a hospitable place. Some people fall in love with it but for me it just has no soul.

  4. I am a Tucson native and I moved out of there 5 years ago and haven't regretted it one time. It's a dirty, poor, corrupt city and people are right to call it the Detroit of the West. Everything about where we live now is better. I'll never go back to Tucson.
