Review of Kingman, Arizona

Living in Kingman
Star Rating - 9/1/2016
Absolutely the worst place to live. The health care is nothing more than a greed corporation as there is one hospital here and they run every aspect of your health care(a misnomer if there ever was one)6 pap smears 4 mammograms and a lot of fear and anxiety later I went to another another state and have since refused to go to any DR. or facility here that is associated with KRMC and they all are because I found out that my pap and mammo came back normal and have since gotten them elsewhere.The air quality is horrible because this place is surrounded by mine's(copper etc.) and when the wind blow's which it does frequently those chemicals are what you are breathing and NO oversite on air or water quality or little. Because they (corrupt)politicians are letting hay farm's come in they are using up all of the ground water it is estimated that this place will run out of water in 2-3 year's. Education is a joke they rank at the bottom.Hot,dry and absolutely nothing to do here unless you travel for 4-5 hours. Do extensive checking before you move try to get past the" small town,route66,cheap"hype and dig deep. If you are on S.S or have children you better be prepared for nothing for your children to do and for seniors be prepared for high medical,rent and groceries. I have nothing good to say about this place so I am moving ASP.Corruption,greed,and everything bad including high drug abuse.

We have live here for a year. I disagree with your post. Coming from the Midwest we have found the weather to be wonderful. 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, Andy Devine days,where we enjoyed a wonderful parade, car show and Historical 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 October fest,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. If you were bored you chose to be. We have almost 300 days of sunshine. I choose to be happ. I hope you find a place you can enjoy for me Kingman is a great spot close to many other great places to visit. Best wishes to you.
