Northeast Tucson, near the base of the Catalina mountains. That area is called the Foothills and is beautiful but one of the more expensive areas to live. The closer to the mountain, the pricier. A little south of there is an area called Riverwalk. It's a pretty new neighborhood, close to everything with lots of newly built houses. Not exactly suburbs of Tucson, but much more aesthetically pleasing than Vail or Rancho Sahuarita and Rita Ranch which are basically just a bunch of track-home communities. I would stay away from South/Southeast Tucson. North Tucson is nice but is the fastest growing area and quite a drive to midtown.
