Arizona is a great place to live, in the Phoenix valley anyways... we have sun most of the year, blue skies and white puffy clouds... schools for anyone and anything you could possibly want to go for, concerts of every genre, arts centers and outdoor events in most major cities, museums, history, carnivals, swap meets, zoo's and wildlife parks, scenis drives for those that love it, country or city living within a short drive from each other...
You can be in L.A. Vegas, or San Diego within 4-6 hours. We have 5 lakes within a 30-45 minute drive and if you love snow you can go to the ski resorts within 2-3 hours!
The state of AZ has every climate and every kind of landscape, desert, water, mts., valleys & prairies. You name it, you can find it here! If you don't like the heat go north! And besides its only from May to September then its heaven!!! you'll wake up to springlike weather almost every day that will make you want to get up and breathe in deeply and say yes!!! i made it through the heat and THIS is why i live here!!!
