So this house is just off of Moore Road, you are near La Cholla, and if you go down that road, you will get to the Foothills Mall in less than 10 minutes, that has movie theatres, restaurants, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, etc. You are also close to Tangerine Rd, and there is a large Fry's along that road, restaurants, and small stores. It is also close to the Golf Course at Dove Mountain, where the accenture match play occurs. If you go in the other direction on Tangerine, you will hit additional stores at the Oro Valley Marketplace, and the Safeway Center and then you will be on Oracle Rd. (State Route 77) and that takes you towards Tucson. There is also hiking in the area.

Like Jodi and Spirit said, this is a huge question!

The city/town limits of Tucson and Oro Valley do meet, but if you need to get to downtown Tucson it's about 18 miles, and 13 to the UofA campus.

We have most major retailer and "big box" stores. The Tucson Mall is about 9 miles south, and La Encantada (upscale shopping and dining) is about 8 miles.

There are 5 golf courses, both public and private. Lots of small gyms and fitness facilities, and an LA Fitness is under construction now. Lots of great hiking too.

Basically you get a lovely "small town" feel in Oro Valley, but you are still close enough to most everything that you might want to do. And the views are incredible!

I suggest that you look at the Town's website as well: http://www.orovalleyaz.gov. Lots of great info here.

Please keep me in mind if you are considering a move here.
