Review of Fountain Hills, Arizona

Straight Scoop
Star Rating - 3/6/2019
We live in Boise but are seriously considering a move to Fountain Hills. We have visited FH and it's beautiful...but we are not sure we can do the Summers! In Boise there are 4 months where temps never get above 20-30 degrees. The days are usually windy, cold and grey, there is no going for hikes or bike rides or golf (at least for me) during Winter. I am originally from So Cal so I am fine with sun and heat but we are talking about Arizona heat! Can someone please give us the straight scoop on the Summers.

Fountain Hills has some beautiful views but it's mostly retired people who are only here in the winter. The summers are BRUTAL but the winters are nice. But you have 6 months of brutal heat where you can't do anything outside really. There isn't much to do here unless you like to hike - not many museums, historic homes, gardens - everything is brown and the heat gets to you after a while. We want to move after only a couple years here. I would stay in Boise or go somewhere greener.

Payson might be for you, imagine pine forest, and chilly, but not outrageous winters. It's like Flagstaff, but a little cheaper.
