There is lots of exploring to do, just make sure you always have plenty of water with you.
What is BHC ?

Might want to use the Advanced search function. Here are some threads on Anthem.

This thread is really not the best place to get information about rentals in a particular city, particularly in the metro Phoenix area. Go to the Phoenix forum and start a thread about renting in East Mesa, and ask your questions there. You can also find a lot of information if you use the search function and read existing threads.

Default Thank you!

Thank you all for posting info for city by city in AZ...this is VERY helpful to us who want to move to AZ and have very little knowledge about each city. I would like to hear about Mesa/Tempe/Queen Creek as well....

You will find more information about those cities, and others in the metro Phoenix area, by using the search function to look up threads in which these cities are discussed.

Default Looking to Relocate

I'm considering relocating possibly to the State of Arizona, so city by city is a great idea! Prescott sounds inviting and affordable for a writer who's at retirement age and looking for a place to call home. I've not read too many city by city's as yet, but I will.... Sometime back, on an airplane flight into Toledo, Ohio, I met a lady who lived in Green Valley, AZ. She loved the area. I don't want city life, but I don't want total country living either, although I enjoy horses. Something in between city and country would be very nice! And the weather appears to be quite nice in Prescott. Thanks for info!

Weather: Four seasons. Fairly mild. Summer temps seldom reach 100 and cool at night into low 60's. Winter temps - highs around 45-55, lows usually in the 20's-30's. Occasional snow that melts within the day. Worst months - May/June when it's extremely dry and windy = Fire season.
Schools: I'm not an expert on this one, but supposedly Prescott has some of the best public schools in AZ and one or two good private schools, too.
Commute: Avoid Hwy 69 between Prescott/PV during rush hour. However, unless there's a wreck, it still only takes 1/2 hr to get from downtown Prescott to Dewey (5 mi SE of Prescott Valley). Total drive is about 15mi, so I don't think it's too bad. However with all the new construction it's bound to get worse.
Food: We have the usual chains (Outback, Chilis, Olive Garden, etc. But I really like some of the unique eateries we have.
Shopping: All the typical suberb shopping (Target, Pier 1, Michaels, Best Buy, Barnes N Nobles, Starbucks, etc.) We do have a mall. Ditto in Prescott. More shopping on the way. Good thing or bad thing depending on your point of view. Will definitely add to traffic and growth.
Air quality: Except for when the Forest Service does controlled burns, it's very good. I love the smell of the pines after a summer rain storm.
Economy: The area needs more good paying jobs. Medical and service jobs are the majority of jobs here, although others are available - just not plentiful. Other than the job situation, the economy is very strong!
Crime: Generally low. You will find a few areas that have a reputation for being less safe than normal. An occasional meth-lab or drug bust or domestic dispute. As Prescott/Prescott Valley grow, I'm sure crime will too. Right now, though, I feel very safe in the area.
Housing prices: Generally high compared with wages. However not as high as many people imagine. New 3/2/3, 1600-2000 in PV will be around $250-$300k. In Prescott, you'll probably spend $375-$450 for a comparable home.
Good neighborhoods: Doesn't really apply up here. It's more like views/boulders/pines in Prescott vs more affordable housing in Prescott Valley vs horse property in Chino Valley and Dewey.
Culture: Depends on your perspective. We have some nice museums and art galleries, some musicals and plays, and some concerts and restaurants with live music. Prescott is a town of about 40,000, so you're not going to have an abundance of cultural experiences here
