I just moved to Tucson in January. If you're looking for affordable
and relatively safe apartments then you'll want to look on the east side.
I found a great little complex called Canyon Heights -- they're on Rent(dot)com.
It's in an ideal location, close to shopping, food, great views of the
mountains, and maybe 10-15 minutes from downtown and the U... depending
on traffic. <snip>
