I have driven thru Bullhead City and I've never been able to find a downtown, where are they hiding it?

The city seems to have been built so helter-skelter, like Pahrump, and being that I'm still looking around for a retirment city where I won't be dependent on a car, I just don't see that for Bullhead City. Lake Havasu, been there, looks to me like more planning went into that town. They actually have a more identifiable downtown area.

But, like I said, I may have missed downtown Bullhead City entirely!

As for Kingman, when you go east from Laughlin, you rise from 700 feet in altitude to 3700, a 3000 foot difference! And what are we looking at here, being 1500 feet higher than Las Vegas? Pretty chilly winters and perhaps some light snow, occasionally.

More context? Section 8? Medical issues? Why not just select a residence near a supermarket in Las Vegas?

I am happy to report I have moved to the Las Vegas area (Henderson) and we absolutely love it. The weather is very similar to Lake Havasu, on New Years day it was about 64 F. My husband and I both got jobs that pay double what we were making. I had several job offers, and am still getting phone calls. There is so much to do here we are never bored. A lot of outdoor activities, we find a new hiking trail every week and try it out. The cost of living is about the same as in Lake Havasu, some things are cheaper and some more so it averages out. I thought the traffic was going to be terrible, but unless there is an accident you can get to most places in 20 - 30, only 10 min to the strip or downtown. Anyone considering moving out this way, take a look at this area also. If you like the small town living and lower wages then Havasu, Bullhead, or Kingman may be right for you. Its not for everyone, but we couldn't be happier, and am confident that 2012 is going to be a much better year for us.
