Hot is Bullheads middle name. I don't think anyone will say it isn't, but you can either pay high heating costs in some parts of the country or cooling costs. I lived in Tucson and ran fans with the AC set at 85 and I was never hot. All of our towns have drugs and unless people get involved it will stay that way. People refuse to educate themselves about the drug problem. Until we lean on the manufacturers of products that they put into the stuff we will never win. Everything from antihistamines to batteries ends up in our street drugs. American corporations are making money off the destruction of our society and we are allowing it. If we refuse to bug their products until they can find something to put in that would stop their use in drugs, they would be pretty quick to fix.
I would call the Mayor or Police department and ask what are they doing to make it a livable city. What is their policy on illegals (my guess is they have none). How are they handling drug dealers, is there a citizen watch group etc.But until you ask the people running the show you won't get the answers you need to be informed. And not the Chamber of Commerce, their job is to get you to move there).

Default moving to bullhead city

Possibly moving to Bullhead City from Davenport Iowa. Very unsure, very brutal winter here last winter. Davenport has high crime for size of area. How are schools in Bullhead, have a 13 yr old. Anything to do there.

Bullhead City has some brutal summers! It can easily get to 120+. It's VERY hot there! You'll be going from one extreme to the other.

It's hot down there, but being orginally from Iowa and then moving to Lake Havasu City, Arizona, I know your desire of wanting to go there. This winter has been harch in the midwest! Bullhead City has its nice areas and its not so nice areas.
As far as weather goes, it is brutally hot in the summer, but gorgeous in the winter. Coming from the midwest, though, I was surprised that AZ does actually feel cool in the winter. Just south of Bullhead you might experience freezing temps in the winter. That lasts such a short time though that you don't even care. Bullhead City is windy a lot.

Thumbs up Bullhead City Resident / Realtor

I presently live in Bullhead City have 2 kids and no complaints. There are many locations that you will enjoy living up and down the river. Electric bills will vary depending on the construction of the home. Even homes that are only a couple years old will have a tremendous difference in energy cost based on windows,A/C seer rating and insulation. Prices are low right now but the amount of homes selling are increasing by the month.

Thumbs up Bullhead City Resident / Realtor

I been in Bullhead now for 6 years from Salt lake city Utah. Great winters here and summers are hot so use the lake and river to stay cool and be entertained. Buy a home with a pool and your child will have plenty to do for the summer. Maybe add a jetski or boat to complete it. Winters for kids theres movies, mini golf, hiking, and socializing with friends. Feel free to e-mail me with any other questions regarding the area.

I lived in BHC from 2005-06.

My main objection to the place is the lack of 'culture'.

As for housing costs and work; surprisingly enough, I did OK.

The fact that I am not a 'party animal' is a two edged sword in that area: employers like 'clean' employees who are punctual, etc. but if said employer likes to drink-----non drinkers also seem to be threatening for some odd reason.

The heat is no more unpleasant than the American 'South'. Remember that 120F with its 15% humidity is comparable to Florida with its 90F @ 80% humidity. The direct sun is brutal------that I will say.

Do not move to Bullhead until you have visited Bullhead...in the summer(that goes for any desert town!!!). There's not much there and it has a lot of older, trashier areas. Why would anyone want to move to Bullhead anyway? AZ has a LOT of much nicer towns....especially if you have a child.
