Study: Tucson Allows Stressed Parents to Find Work/Life Balance

Tucson is among the top four cities where parents have the opportunity to balance their work and personal lives, according to a new study from MarketWatch.

Factors taken into consideration included affordable housing in good school districts, low unemployment rates, weather, arts and culture, entertainment, parks, childcare costs, and more.

Tucson is praised for its nearly-constant sunshine, bike-friendly roads, and numerous outdoor activities. A revamped downtown and the University of Arizona also were cited in the study.
