    Default Best place to live in AZ

    Thinking about moving to AZ, looking for a low cost of living close to water and a hospital. Have a TX 19 jet and a 26 foot velocity need water to support both toys. Close to water is more important than the hospital......she can drive lol.

    Depends on if your looking at the Phoenix area or somewhere else, Havasu is definatley the best for lake location but if your looking at the phoenix area, really no matter where your at your within 30-45 min. tops from a lake and def. close to a hospital theyre everywhere seems like they are building a new one every year.

    Please keep me in the AZ loop...I have also been looking at moving to AZ. In the Phoenix area, Peoria seems like a nice place. When I talked to the locals, it seemed as if it's a good place for kids/families and you can still purchase land there (if that's important to you), also, close to local lakes!!

    kingman!...low cost of living, hospital right here in town and lots of choices for the boats...you have mohave lake about 30 minutes away along with the rivier ...also have havasu about an hour away, needles about an hour away and lake mead about an hour away...kingman is small enough to have the small town feel but just big enough that it has most of the major amenities you would want....never thought i would call kingman home but now that i live here ill probably never leave

    Not Tucson. 3 hrs to the lake. A lot of hospitals though. Shitty infrastructure. If my wife wasn't locked here we'd move to Phoenix area.

    Hospital sucks in havasu. I would drive to kingman with a broke leg before i set foot in that place.

    There are some very nice places in Peoria and its close to lake pleasant, all depends what your wanting to spend and where you would end up for work.
    I work on homes all over the valley so ive pretty much seen them all.

    Nice Pics!!! Lake Pleasant is much closer than any lake around NM; it would be nice to be that close to a lake!

    Peoria seems really nice and the house prices looked pretty reasonable. I like that it's a little ways out and not so close to all of the hustle and bustle!

    You will have to go further west to get away from that crap, about 215th Ave.
