Hi,

I moved to CA 2 years ago from the east coast and it hasn't gone as I'd hoped. I've found it hard to meet people, costly beyond what I anticipated and hard to find a good place to live. I'm considering leaving in a couple of months.

I am single and can open an office anywhere or am traveling so I can move anywhere. I'm considering AZ for financials and wondering if there is an area where the community is tight and is low in crime. I work in alternative medicine and plan to open an office so I'd appreciate an open-minded area as well. I would plan on leaving for the worst heat if I can.

I was thinking cave creek, Tucson, or mesa? Any thoughts?

Thanks!!!!

LOL.....low crime. The phoenix area is the car theft capital of the country and the has one of the highest larceny rates, which encompasses all theft, in the country. Move to Tucson. Although it isnt as "cool" (tons of bars, all 4 major pro sports) as Phoenix it's a lot more mellow, air pollution isnt as bad, cost of living is lower and it's about 5 degrees cooler in the summer time.

Although Im not as negative on Phoenix as GSXR, for different reasons Tucson may be better choice - Its has a lot more of a liberal bent to it, so your alternative medicine may have a better chance. Other choices in that regard would be Sedona, but then you ll get a taste of winter.

A lot depends on your activities, what kind of weather you want, whether you want a big city, etc....
