on the West end of Tucson, above the valley floor, i.e. West Speedway and North Greasewood Road. A relative calm area and we never ever felt threatened. Because of the 'remoteness', we heard the occasional gunshot off the west speedway road, but this was always very late night or early morning hours. The area is spread-out and plenty of walking, riding, moving, etc.
We did errands, and made our way into Tucson, midtown, east-side, north-side (Oro Valley, Marana). We really had no reason to go into South Tucson, South Central Tucson, SouthEast Tucson - though I would consider those areas ROUGH sides.
You sometimes don't now though IF your neighborhood OR the Housing area across is a stash hour for DRUGS! We encountered and witnessed Tucson Police storming a stash house with Cars, lights, and helicopters - that was only ONE time in our years of living on west TUcson for 11 years.
I actually have fond memories and probably felt safer there in West Tucson than traveling though Albuquerque.

Im would erecomend coming out for a vist first and do your own recon mission. Oro valley and parts Marana is nice. I also like the town of Sierra Vista. Small and cooler temps.
