Went to Tucson for a treat at Gadabouts and came away inspired. However, the growth of the city is quite evident. Yet Tucson would be a great retirement spot because of the way the city protects itself from too much street light---mesquite and palo verde trees are all over town. Most attractive houses and apartment complexes look best when they keep to a desert landscape. A few apartment near Ft Lowell and Campbell were quite reasonably priced. I wonder if the same is true further east of town. I'll find out more at another time.
