When in college in Tempe 25 years ago, I used to spend quite a bit of time in Tucson as I had a few friends down there and even dated someone down there for awhile.

All I can say is that it appears to have come a LONG way from what it was in the late 90s.

There was always great food, but the city at that time was UofA (6th St) and not much else except a gritty inner city and suburbia beyond. All the interesting stuff (with the exception of the Barrio) was on the outskirts: San Xavier, the Catalinas, Saguaro NP, Kitt Peak (if you ever get a chance, the solar telescope is so cool), the airplane graveyard, even Biosphere was worth a visit.

Arizona in general is quite stunning, and there are lots of places in southern Arizona that are totally and completely unique, especially once you get out of the city.
Even if you are 1 in a million, there are still 7,000 people just like you...
