Review of Kingman, Arizona


Beautiful weather and scenery.
Star Rating - 10/1/2017
I have enjoyed living here. Coming from the Midwest I love the sunshine and overall weather. We have met a lot of people from different states and some who have lived here all of their lives. Nice family and working class people for the most part. So many things to do and see right here in Kingman or a short scenic drive.We have lived here for a year. Coming from the Midwest we have found the weather to be wonderful.Many chain restaurants like Cracker barrel, Chili's, Golden Corral, Etc, along with many "mom and pop" places. We have also enjoyed the many activities Kingman and nearby towns have to offer. Fireworks on Memorial day on the river in Laughlin, fireworks in Kingman and Laughlin on the 4th, Keepers of the wild, Andy Devine days Rodeo, Andy Devine days,where we enjoyed a wonderful parade, car show and Historic Rt 66 presentation at the Kingman Museum. Many antique stores and quaint shops and restaurants downtown. Nothing to do? Really? Chillin on Beale which is FREE Cruise-In, Block Party and Movie night! Come and enjoy Classic Cars, music and a free movie. Free Movie night inside of Beale Celebrations,15 minutes up to the Hualapai mountains where you can enjoy cooler temps, hiking, picnic, and the beauty of the pine trees, and wildlife, Alpaca farm days, Farmers market on Saturdays, Mohave museum of History and Art, Craft shows in the Hualapai Mountains, Hiking, Veteran's day parade, Brews and brats Oktoberfest,RT 66 cruizers Halloween bash, 14 public parks, 2 public pools, 2 golf courses, The Kathryn Heidenreich Adult Center with MANY activities, Desert Diamond Distillery, Cella Winery, Diana's Cellar door, PLUS MANY activities in Laughlin, Lake Havasu,Oatman, Chloride, Grand Canyon West, and Bullhead city. Great to be able to sit outside without mosquitos, walk in the neighborhood and meet other neighbors. Kingman is a great place to live.

Having spent considerable time in the Midwest, I can see exactly why you'd find the weather in Kingman so good. I think people from other parts of the country might be disgruntled if they expected something other than what Kingman has to offer. I have not lived in Kingman; I am a native Californian but have spent so much time in the Midwest, with its horrible winters (where you can't do all that much outside because the weather is so bad) that just being able to get around all year would be such a step up. Plus as you explain, there are many activities around Kingman. Thanks for your review!
