My place is located in a very nice quiet and open space next to historical fort lowell park, on the east side of the city. I have a wonderful view to the mountains from my back patio . Although the place is kind of central, very close to malls and commercial business, you still have the feeling of being out of the city. It is safe and quiet at night.
Tucson has a international yearly fair on February, called the Gem and Mineral show.
People come from all over the world to buy diamonds, precious gems, fossils and rocks.
Also Tucson is very interesting place for it history and the Mine towns around here - Tumbston, Bisbe, Tubac, and more.
From here you can go from the desert (beautiful one, full of flowers in may) to the Mountains where one can ski in winter time.
I'm an artist, easy going and (URL HIDDEN) I like to offer, for short time stay, an extra room I do not use much in my house.
