We're thinking about a move to Flagstaff area in the next few years. We love the small town feel, but I require shopping within 15 minutes. We'd like to have an acre or two to live on. My hubby will graduate from Dental school and probably need a job in town where there are actually people (and teeth).
Is there anything like this around the Flagstaff area?

Default Looking for Flagstaff

The metro area of Flagstaff has over 200,000, and is probably closer to a quarter of a million people. From what I remember, most of them have all of their teeth! If you are from a large metro area, Flag may seem small, but there should be more than enough people for your husband to survive in his craft. Flagstaff is hardly bereft of people.

Flagstaff is fairly isolated, which means that anyone who lives in North Central Arizona goes there for shopping, services, etc. There's mostly the standard shopping places at the mall and in the western part of the town; the downtown has quite a few little locally owned shops. It doesn't have the major shopping centers that Phoenix would have, but you should be able to survive on what's there.

It is an expensive place to live, though (when compared to the rest of Arizona). An acre or two, with a decent-sized house on it, won't come cheap. However, it's a great place to live. I lived there from 1999-2003, and am hoping to get back there soon, despite the costs. The location can't be beat...you have all four seasons, with winter being the shortest! The temps are also very mild, rarely getting above 90 degrees in the summer, but usually in the 40's for highs in the winters. And sunny most of the year.

Doney Park is 10 miles North East of town and most lots have 2 acres. But I wouldn't really call it the boonies, it more of a suburb with big yards where everyone has a horse that never get ridden and a 45ft 5th wheel. Otherwise the real boonies are on the road from Willams to the Grand Canyon. Lots of cool houses that are off the grid, but then you are about 35 miles out of town.

Williams is a nice, little place with a lot of wooded areas to settle but there is a water problem there, so be careful. I do like the town and it's not far by interstate to Flagstaff

We lived in the boonies of Flagstaff. "Snowbowl Estates 2". No power, no phone and no all season road. The best view of the peaks bar none but it's out there.
