Kingman is 5-10 degrees cooler than the Colorado River valley. You're only an hour and half from Flagstaff.
Please, summer in Kingman is not April-Oct, at best, summer in Kingman would be May 14th-Oct 2nd (period where normal high is 85 or higher), in Apr and Oct, Kingman sees several days with highs in the 60's and low's in the 30's ffs

Thanks

The area I would stay away from is the Butler/Birdland area. Run down trailers and most don't care how their yards look. In the 2 years we've lived in Kingman I don't think we went into that area maybe once just to see where it was. However....in the past 6 months we have been traveling to that area often because my step-daughter and her husband (from Anaheim, CA...need I say more???) bought a place in the Butler area. When they were looking around last year we took them there and said...don't buy in this area Well, they never did listen to us so that's exactly where they bought. We couldn't believe it, but thankfully, they have nice neighbors and the street they're on is pretty nice. They seem to be happy with it so I guess that's all that matters.

There are a lot of nice areas in Kingman and you just need to look around and find what suits you.

Word is Birdland is pretty damn bad but; parts of Butler are Ok.

The weather sites are correct. I think also what you may be seeing is that's the average and you will see anything from zero wind days to 20-30 MPH days. I lived there for five years and we had a pool. Anything more than 10 or 15 MPH wasn't pleasant to use the pool, and we used it a LOT. There are definitely some high wind events, typically associated with the summer monsoons. We actually had a dust devil lift up a regulation size trampoline which weighed 350lbs over a 6' block wall, and deposited it right-side up in the empty lot next door. Plus there are a number of days with dust storms and with tumbleweeds on the move. But on the average, Kingman wind sounds a lot more mild that Victorville. It really wasn't a problem.

Dave - when you go, drive up Hualapai Mountain Road (have lunch at the Lodge, about 6,200 ft). The view coming back down will show you the whole city layout. We had lunch there yesterday. See the "Deer" thread below.

There are some newer homes on the NE side of I40 around the hospital. I believe they are still planning a new interchange somewhere around that area, so watch for issues with that.

The "nice" homes - $250-600K are off Hualapai Mtn Rd. That's where I'd want to be if I had to live there. But they are pricey for what you get.

Don't forget to take a drive down to Bullhead and Laughlin. Or even consider staying at one of the casino hotels here and driving up to Kingman. We have a Sam's club, and soon a 2nd WalMart. And the best part is you do not need an oven in the summer, just park your car outside and you can bake cookies on the dash.

Enjoy your trip.

Considering the high temperatures in Arizona during the summer we would appreciate any advice / information about the heat and lower humidity in Kingman. Many thanks in advance !!!!
Did you, in fact, move to Kingman? If so, has it met your expectations? We are thinking about moving there and wondering about crime, cost of living, grocery stores etc.

You're digging up old threads on Kingman and responding to people most of whom haven't visited the forum in years. The person who started this thread started a bunch of other threads after this one about moving to other places, so it's pretty certain they didn't move to Kingman.

Every city has its pluses and minuses depending on the person. I lived there for five years and LOVED it. I loved the cost of living, the geography, the weather and the people. Other people will hate it. For example, if you need to be able to walk to the symphony or spend the day shopping in Chinatown, then it probably isn't for you.

Maybe you can share a bit more about what you're looking for, and that way we can be more helpful.
