The San Francisco Chronicle is calling Tucson "hip." While this isn't news to Tucsonans, it's nice to be thought of as more than that town down the road from Phoenix.

The Chronicle is calling Tucson "Portland without the rain," and "a Mission District without the attitude." Tucson has plenty of attitude, but perhaps it is a bit more subtle than outsiders expect.

Nonetheless, we'll take the compliments.

Read the Chronicle's article, "Hip Little Tucson Heat Up."
