I have a few questions for you all out there. My family and I are looking at relocating to Tucson from Kelowna British Columbia, Canada. The housing market is VERY expensive here and it appears we could sell our house up here, move to Arizona and be house debt free. We also like the thought of leaving behind long winters.
Are the schools really that horrible? If so, are charters schools an improvement?
Summers: Are they too intense or does one acclamate to the intense heat once you have lived in Arizona for awhile.
snakes: HATE them!!! I enjoy the outdoors and are snakes going to be everywhere? We are thinking about living on some land in the Tanque Verde area. Will I have to inspect the area everytime I let my children out to play? And do these creatures get into your houses? Uggghhh.
Gardening: We love gardening. Is this common in Tucson?
I saw in one post that somebody said it is pricey to live in Tucson? Could somebody expand on this? Do we mean taxes, amenities...?
Thank you so much! I would love to hear some thoughts.
p.s. I have a dual citizenship and my husband is working on a green card, so that is how we are able to move down the U.S.A
