Kingman-Mohave County Neighborhoods Left To Decay - 12/6/2014
First, I'd like to address the comment about Arizona being populated by 'gun-toters' in tank tops, shorts and being 'yahoos'. That was gross negligence on the part of someone who listed his credentials as a professional and untrue. Another Democrat who has located to a Red state to take advantage of our beautiful areas, but slams its populace at the same time.

Now, on to my review:

I live in Kingman-Mohave County. This means that neither the police, county inspectors, environmental health officers, or, animal control give one whit about its residents. Not one. The town tax collectors are on the ball, though..

Our neighborhood began in the 1980s as a retirement area of elderly who bought quality mobile homes for their day and lived quite nicely - clean yards, gardens, etc.

Today, as these people are dying off, many of these homes are slumlord owned. There are broken fences, garbage in the yards and people keep dogs outside - Read More

In response to those who've speculated about Kingm - 11/19/2014
  I have been a resident of the general Mohave County area for about 21 years total.  A resident of Kingman about 8 of those.  You may remember the Nat King Cole song "GET YOUR KICKS ON RT. 66"?  Then you'll likely remember the line in the song, "Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino"? 
  The majority of my time here,  I've been a radio and television personality, reporter, news director/anchor.  It was supposed to be a transitional move, but as is often the case, life kept happening.  I've lived in Bullhead City, in the lower desert where it averages 112 degrees in the summer.  That's the average, Boys and Girls!  I've lived here  in Kingman for about 8 of those 21 years.  I have seen summers in Kingman as hot as 121, and winters as cold as 8 below.  And the wind reports are true, but I kind of like that, so... 
   What I know, I know from an insider's view.  My position and popularity afforded me access and info others wouldn't normally encounter.  These communities have to Read More

Kingman is a great place to live IF.......... - 2/25/2013
Kingman is a great place to live "IF" you like majestic sunsets and sunrises, enjoy night skies full of bright stars (with zero light pollution) IF you like hiking and camping, jet skiing and small towns... if you enjoy being outdoors then YES this is the place for you!! If you can take the time to enjoy the small splendors that big cities don't offer and really see what Kingman has rather than what it doesn’t you will be surprised how much you would love the town. I have lived in Kingman six years, I have two children and I am 35 I love living here, I like the fact that I don't have to drive through congestion to get to work, people wave at you rather than flip you off and honk your horn, everyone knows you.. And that isn't always a bad thing!!

Drugs… hmm where aren't they, and NO it doesn’t run rapid here. The schools are decent, we could use more funding but they are good. And yes people do wear guns on there hips and yes you don' t have to have a concealed weapons Read More

my review - 1/10/2013
I have lived in two different states before I came here. If you are coming from a city with lots of department stores and things like that you are in for a culture shock! Most of the people that I have met are racist and mostly christain who are unwilling to accept any other religion. The way many people including myself put it is that the town itself is growing but the people are not. What i mean by that is that most of the population has grown up in this area and a lot of them are afraid of things they dont understand and not very welcome to any change. A lot of the population is also very poor. The main store here is walmart and if you want to get any grocery shopping done for any organic foods, get ready to pay.
On the environmental side it is a beautiful desert town with a lot of history. So if you can get over the fact that the overall population is racist, and stubborn its not so bad if you have to live here. Read More

Retired here - 12/31/2012
I retired here in 2011 because the cost of living is low. If you are looking for culture, forget it. It is just a quiet place to live between trips to Flagstaff, laughlin, vegas, Phoenix, and the west coast. I got a 5 year old home 1800+SF for Read More

Kingman is an absolutely horrible place to live, P - 12/23/2012
I moved here 6 months ago, after doing, what I thought was thorough research; climate, etc. Now I have lived here long enough to know that there is a huge crime and drug problem, a lot of homeless people, probably a very corupt government, awful schools, lazy dirty people and a lot of people on welfare, food stamps - to be very honest, I can't think of any thing positive about this town. There is no employment ! ! Sorry, but I am only stating a truth and the facts. I would not even THINK of coming here to Read More

Moving to Kingman - 2/23/2012
Here are somethings to consider about Kingman, Az. If you live on the east coast, stay home. There is nothing for you out west. There is more culture here than you think. But because it's different from what you are use to, it's wrong and it sucks. Not every state stays up all night. So you have to consider that. It is a small town, and that way for a reason. If you do not understand what a small town is then why move there.I am sure everyone would appreciate it if you didn't.And as for the bugs, guns, crime and homeless roaming about, where in the US can you go where you don't have to deal with that. So...if you are a spoiled little baby, please, do everyone a favor and don't move Read More

DO NOT MOVE TO KINGMAN! - 2/14/2012
I don't care what the reason is! Don't move to Kingman! Being offered a new job making big money? Not worth it! Kingman should be rated the worst little town in the USA! It is a very dirty town with many unpaved roads and streets. One hospital in town. (The other one shut down). The one hospital, Kingman Regional Medical Center, offers the worst care! Nursing care, emergency room care, surgical care is pitiful! Hospital is poorly managed. Housing is a joke. Old, worn out, out-dated housing. No shopping mall. One walmart. Windy all the time. Homeless walking the street all over. People wear guns on their hips! This is no place to raise a family. School system is terrible with drugs being rapant in the high school. Crime is very high. I agree...Kingman is a nice place to VISIT...close to Grand Canyon, Vegas, and the climate is nice....but it is NO PLACE TO LIVE!!  Read More

Temperature & Housing - 3/12/2011
People should realize most sites will give you average temps based on 50+ years of data which will make Kingman seem hot but ok, when reality is the past decade Kingman gets over 100 on almost every single day in July even up to 109. I used July as an example as it is hottest month. August & June are not much cooler.
Housing in Kingman is literally dirt cheap and it is because recoil on Vegas housing explosion and the fact that the land is really not worth much anyway, so you can get pretty nice house on several acres for well below average. Keep in mind the further out you live and larger parcels you & neighbors have then the more dust & wind you will get. This is true of most places in the Read More
