They have the worlds worst stadium (looks like a warehouse/airplane hanger). If you have to close the roof to play baseball, thats a clue that baseball doesnt belong in the area.
Well, it wasn't really my focal point of the post. I was simply trying to make the point that there is plenty to see and do in this great state. And hey, the Suns are a great team, so all sports teams here aren't bad.

I pride myself on knowing plenty of obscure places around the country...but this one had me scratching my head. Why were these places involved? If I had money i'd choose Scottsdale, hands down. Arizona is one of the more underrated states in the country IMO, and there is endless things to do in the S'dale region. The houses are beautiful, but I can't afford them right now...
With that said I choose Anchorage. I hear you, 'but mr. lions the houses are just as expensive up north, what the hell?' Well, Alaska is the last frontier and i'd love to go there. Now i'd only live there for the next 6 months so I don't have to freeze, then i'd rent in S'dale again.
Well, it made sense in my head...

As for how I came about this list, never you mind.
Well, I see you figured out how to fix the typo.

"Never you mind"? What, do you work for the FBI, or Home Security? Watch out, folks! I think he's gathering intelligence. (Cue soundtrack from "The X-Files").

Can't decide between Flagstaff and Anchorage. Both have really cool names. And if I lived in one, I'd be pining away for the other.

That is my answer! I chose Avalon, NJ, to be close to my dear NYC.

Yes, but Haddonfield is actually closer. Plus, Philly is only 5 miles away too.

I'm sure Arizona might have one or two other things, but they probably aren't anything good, ya know?

Grand Can is cool, the parks are nice but once youve seen them, thats it (for me). The sports teams suck, the malls are everywhere and I lived there for 2 years and hated every single second of it.

I can fully understand hating malls, but the scenic views from the road (even in Scottsdale), the parks, just the general outdoors in AZ out weigh most of the bad things the state has really. Yes, the Cardinals suck, the Diamondbacks suck (right now), the Coyotes...who cares about hockey anyway, but the Suns, come on, 2nd best record in the NBA? You can't throw them into the mix.

I moved here from DC (which I loved) almost a year ago and I haven't regretted it at all. I have really loved it. Life is much easier here.

Lightbulb Definitely NOT anchorage, AK

Forget Anchorage - lived there and unless you like 6 months of darkness and cold, forget it. Totally depressing. The summers are nice (daylight all the time, day and night) - so if you ever take a trip, go there during the summer. The winters are long, really long, dark (no sun at all) an hour or two of 'dusk' which still is quite dark - that's why there are so many alcoholics and suicides in Alaska - people can't handle the darkness, totally depressing.

Question to those in Scottsdale, AZ as I am considering it on 'my list' of possible places to move....
Is it really that bad as far as snobbery ? I keep hearing how snooty everyone is there, and its a concern. Tell me what's the real deal any details you could offer would be greatly appreciated. Also, is there much to do there with kids (under the age of 12) ? How hot does it get there during the hottest summer month, also what are the winters like ? How much sun do you get there ? Thanks !!
