Let me see, how to start. Arizona has so many faults and bad things about it that I can not see why any one would even consider moving here from any where else in the country, let alone the world. First off is the obvious. Arizona is nothing but a dry super hot forbidding desert. The temperature usually runs over 100 degrees and there is no rainfall. In the small parts of Arizona that are cooler, the temperatures will run about 10 degrees below zero and you will have 10 feet of snow.

But to continue; Arizona is a welfare state and leaches off the rest of the country:

Further into the evils of Arizona is the politics:

//www.city-data.com/forum/arizo...oney-bill.html

//www.city-data.com/forum/arizo...-abortion.html

//www.city-data.com/forum/arizo...wn-az-gop.html

//www.city-data.com/forum/arizo...orate-tax.html

And do not forget the infamous Arizona SB1070, the most racist bill ever passed in the history of the world.

Let's move on. How about the water. Take a look at just this one:

//www.city-data.com/forum/arizo...cord-lows.html

And then how depressing it is to have ever lived in Arizona:

//www.city-data.com/forum/arizo...n-back-az.html

Do not forget how depressing and awful the landscape is. After all, Arizona is nothing but desert rocks with no form:

//www.city-data.com/forum/arizo...-strictly.html

Next, it is the education system. Usually it is rated on how much $$ is spent, as if how many dollars=the quality of the education in one place. But then there's this:

//www.city-data.com/forum/arizo...e-arizona.html

So, to suffice, anyone who is thinking about moving to Arizona should well be warned off. However, if that is not enough, for heavens sake do not forget about the gun laws in Arizona.

There are hardly any. It is a virtual Wild West. You will see guns every where on every one. The only reason you might not is because Arizona does not require a permit to carry concealed. And not only that, but Arizona has a law to allow folks who have been convicted of certain (non-violent) felonies to be able to have those self same rights as well.

Oh the agony! So, do not come to Arizona to visit or relocate unless you are willing to deal with it.
Completely agree!! But you forgot to mention the Anti-Immigrant laws going through our legislature now, our miserable blistering heat for 9 months out of the year and lack of museums, art or any culture whatsoever. If you value your children's education...just don't consider AZ. The schools here will turn them into incoherent, drooling idiots. On the subject of children, if they are left unattended the Illegal people traffickers will steal them and force them into child slavery or worse. If you do come, watch your pets as the roving packs of coyotes, Mexican Grey Wolves and gargantuan buzzards will eat them. Also, be prepared to start carrying at least a pistol if not an AR-15. Daily shootouts in Downtown Phoenix and you don't want to be caught unprepared.

Better yet...just stay away. Texas is much more appealing than AZ.

I love how the "Arizona desert vs. California desert" link is supposed to be a negative against Arizona in the O.P.'s post... But click the link and it's full of posts talking about how much more beautiful the Sonoran desert is than the Mojave.

Err, I mean, don't move to AZ! Whatever you do! This place is a dust bowl, filled only with the hopes and dreams of real estate developers that went bankrupt!

Watch it! You're walking a fine line there! ;-)

Don't come to Arizona. There is no sense of irony!

I hang with all three crowds; Pro-gun, strongly pro-gun, and fanatically pro-gun.

I'll be honest with you guys, i'm not a big fan of Arizona but i'll sure take it anyday over Texas! I'm from California and Riverside County is very similar to Phoenix but in LA's backyard. Why live 6 hours from the beach (Phoenix) when you can live one hour or less in SoCal while still hiking similar mountains as in Arizona. Also greater house values. More global amenities.

Yes, listen to I Love Buildings and move to Riverside. It really is paradise on Earth. Only a short distance to skiing in Big Bear, a short drive to the beach and the people are not conceited at ALL.

Not only Big Bear, but also Palm Springs, San Diego, Tijuana, and still fairly centralized to the rest of Southern California.

The air is really clean and the drive is short and relatively traffic-free to the beaches too. Everybody should move to Riverside.

TJ ain't safe these days, I'd be real careful there.
