Probably one of the best Tucson suburbs to live in – Sahuarita

Green Valley

Green Valley is easily near the top of the best Tucson suburbs to live in, due to the sheer amount of amenities (around 900) and low-ish commute times (20-25min). Notable amenities include an awesome Desert Meadows Park and Joyner, the local library. This suburb features a bit more modest homes, made in ranch style while also having huge houses in, you guessed it, Mediterranean style. Green Valley movers will get you there in no time and with extremely competitive costs.

Catalina Foothills

This suburb features more choice in homes than most of the others.

Corona De Tucson

Everyone works at Corona De Tucson! Well, almost everyone. With an unemployment rate of only 3.5%, this is the place to settle down. Corona is a small town, though, with a population of around seven thousand residents. This might be just what you are looking for, or it might turn you off. The fact of the matter is that the community is really tight and involved and that they will make you feel welcome. Tucson is just around 45 minutes away, which is not too bad if you require amenities of the big city.

Tanque Verde

Tanque Verde is one of those suburbs which are similar to others and therefore gets overlooked easily. Which would be a mistake. It has one of the lowest crime rates and features many camping spots and opportunities for mountain climbing, at Tanque Verde Peak.
