Almost forgot. Tucson is rated in social research as being in the bottom of cities nationwide for social disharmony as measured by per capital rates of suicide, alcoholism, divorce and crime.
The people there are lost. Little or no sense of community, its a migratory/vacation City. If you speak to a stranger on the street they often give you the look like: what are you going to do to me, or what are you going to impose on me? They are fearful and closed off to new encounters frequently. Not always but often.
Tucson does have a fairly decent bus system relatively speaking and considering that most cities are lacking in this area. Nothing compared to San Francisco, or any major city like Chicago, New York, etc., but not that bad. Buses frequently break down though and you have to wait for another bus and transfer.
Lots of bad drivers, will drive you up the wall, they are so bad. Little or no traffic enforcement. People cutting you off, going through red lights, speeding.
San Jose, CAExpensive, overpriced, high property crime.
Lived there several years ago. Moved. Housing way overpriced. Restaurants expensive. Worst singles scene for men I have ever experienced and I have lived in multiple cities. Singles dances have women that are so homely you'd have to make love in the dark with a bag over both heads-I kid you not.
Mayor at that time was owned by the cops, would not intervene even when innocent citizens were mistreated-like an old lady sleeping on a bench, intimidated by cop on horseback.
Community college choices are good and cheap.
But you cannot afford an apartment and you will have to live in substandard housing unless you're pulling in 50k a month.
Good ground transportation, close to San Francisco (much better and cheaper restaurants there). Cops are ok in San Jose, except the property crime rate (theft) is through the roof due to all the beaners living there and drug addicts, my guess. They will steal ANYTHING even for a few dollars.
Traffic is a nightmare at times, I used a bike and was often quicker than a car. Weather is pretty good. Lots of cultural activities when I was there, but I usually wound up going to San Francisco for real city life. San Jose is kind of a low energy town. Keep your eye on your stuff or it will disappear.
