No reason to move to Kingman! - 10/30/2010
Been here for one year now. Moved here from the east. Do your research before moving here. This is a small town with no possibilities for growth. A handful of restaurants, one walmart, one bowling alley and a movie theather. No shopping mall. The main hospital in town is poorly managed. It's windy nearly all the time. Do yourself a favor, and look Read More

Better Restaurants & Grocery Shopping - 10/12/2010
Kingman needs better restaurants like Coco's, Applebee's, Olive Garden's and also we need places like Hobby Lobby or Joanns. There are alot of ladies as for myself that like to sew and the only place there is, is Walmart. We need a place that sells fabric other than Walmart. We also need better clothing places like Lane Bryant, or Fashion Bug. Basically, this area is not a good place to live. There are alot more people since my husband and I moved up here since 2007. Also, we need to slow down the traffic. They're going more than the speed limit through residential areas. Through the residential areas their going 30+. Its 25mph and we need more stop signs or speed pumps. So Kingman, AZ is not the best place to live. There is nothing good Read More

Born and raised - 10/27/2009
I love how everyone says the school systems in Kingman aren't the best, and then they go on to spell horribly with no punctuation... True, this town isn't amazing, but it could be worse. Yes, I know some of the people that live here are disgusting, but aren't there people like that everywhere? Meth is a problem here, but there are other drugs that are problems in other cities. At least we don't have people at every corner trying to sell. The mobile homes may not be pretty, but with all the low income families residing here, they're the perfect solution for an affordable home. This isn't Mayberry, so don't expect it to Read More

Kingman, Arizona; A great place to Live - 6/21/2008
Go to: www.86401.info for more information. Kingman has probably the best year round climate in the country. No floods, no hurricanes, no earthquakes.
Located in the heart of the South West Golden Triangle; a little over an hour from Las Vegas, 30 minutes from Laughlin, Nevada, 3 hours from Phoenix, about 4 and a half hours from Los Angeles; 1 hour from the West Rim of the Grand Canyon; 30 minutes from the Colorado River. On Historic Route 66, where Interstate 40 (Chicago to L.A.) and Highway 93 (CanaMex, NAFTA Highway) and about 120 BNSF Freight Trains daily pass; it is truly a City with Read More

Good safe affordable place to retire - 10/6/2007
My husband and I have been searching over the past 5 yrs to find a good safe affordable spot to retire---we are not going to have a nestegg to retire on so affordable is # 1
We find Kingman to be the place. Good close drive to mush to see and do.
We own 5 rentals there and plan to move in one within the next year 08
If anyone knows why we should not complete this plan, please we are still here in Southern Oregon so let us know what your thoughts are.Read More

Just say no!!! - 8/11/2007
I've lived here almost 4 years and I can't wait to get out!!!! If you were raised in the desert, then it might be pretty or decent for you, but as someone from the east coast....I say that the ramshackle properties RUIN the landscape. The mountains are beautiful yes....but there are only a few tolerable weeks a year when its not too hot or too cold to go outside and enjoy the weather.

There is very LITTLE to do here culturally. If you're a church goer, then you're one of the lucky ones. All you can do is hide in your house/apt, go to the movies, gambling in Laughlin (which is BORING) or go out to eat.

I am starving for theatre and ballet and a good orchestra and I can't drive to Vegas for it either....too morally bankrupt. The only culture I see here is at the local library which I have made extensive use of.

There is alot of crime related to Meth, which seems to be the drug of choice for these bored desert rats. And real estate is WAAAAAY Read More

The Cost of Living - 8/7/2007
The Cost of liveing is almost 5% lower than the national average. And the household income is only 3.5% lower than the national average, that makes almost an ideal setting, for the larger amount of the popultation.
Kingman is something more people should look into. Especailly for business owners who will be keeping a staff of more than 9 people. Insurance rates would be lower, and it would provide more jobs. Or at least better jobs.
Look people, WalMart and Starbucks only goes into towns who have a population to support it. There is a WalMart & a Starbucks in Kingman. That alone speakes for Read More
