If you're planning to walk around in the summertime, I would avoid metro Phoenix like the plague. What about Flagstaff?

Several people we knew in apartment complexes near Guadalupe and McClintock in Tempe managed without cars. Not sure they were employed 9-5, though.

There are some walkable towns in Arizona ... in fact, one that instantly comes to mind is Bisbee. It's in the SE part of the state, and it's very historic. For a small town, the downtown area is pretty active, and has some shops & restaurants that are more typically found in a larger city.

Other than that, most of the larger cities in Arizona are sprawling to the point where you pretty much need a car to get around. The exceptions would be parts of Phoenix (primarily downtown & the Central Corridor areas), Old Town Scottsdale, and the Mill Avenue district of Tempe. Tucson and Flagstaff also have walkable areas, but the IT jobs are more limited there.

Walking in the hot sun in over 100 degrees gets old rather fast - I was baking today at the garden center in Cottonwood and it's only April!
