About Tucson

Tucson. One bit of advice; if you are moving to Tucson, make sure you know how to spell it properly. I’ve seen it spelled Tuscon, Tuson, and many other ways that are not correct. One sure-fire way to spot a non-native is when they stumble or hesitate when trying to spell Tucson. So if you are going to be a resident here – a real Tucsonan – make sure you are comfortable with the spelling.

Tucson has the distinction of being number two. We are the second largest city in Arizona, right behind number one – Phoenix. But being number on is not always the most desirable. Phoenix is a city in a hurry. One of my former co-workers lived in Phoenix and he liked to say, “Phoenix is the only place you can drive 70 miles per hour on a side-street, run a red light, and be one of five cars doing the same thing.”

It is true; Phoenix is the second most dangerous city in the country for red light running, so says the National Coalition for Safer Roads. Houston got honors for being number one and Los Angeles came in third.

Phoenix is number one in temperature – it always is hotter than Tucson. Phoenix is number one in population, meaning more crowds, more lines and more congested freeways and streets. Phoenix also has higher gas prices, higher taxes and a high crime rate.

But enough about Phoenix, lets talk about Tucson. READ MORE
