Well, if you have not moved yet, I think you should consider Rio Rico, AZ. It is a great place to live. There are rural areas that will provide you with space along with exceptional views. I have been here since 2018 and just love it. Plus Tucson is only about 35 to 40 minutes away. Sahuarita, AZ as well as Tubac, AZ are also very nice. But homes in Rio Rico are still very affordable. By all means, check it out!

I second this suggestion. I don't know about Utah's water situation, but in Arizona it's an ongoing issue and I think it will get worse as Phoenix's population grows. It's one of the many reasons we left.

Another poster mentioned that it might be difficult to find 100+ acres for sale in Arizona, because much of the land is government-owned, or quickly gobbled up by developers. I would have to agree.

Florida is so crowded, turning so blue, so expensive, terrible taxes, noisy etc. I'll give you an example. I live 6 miles from a Walmart. There have been times that it took me 1.5 hrs to get there. 1 hr means I am making really good time. Between tourists crossing the road to get to the beach, stopping for the Trolley, stopping for buses, stopping for tourists looking for parking, stopping for tourists that step into traffic because they assume people will see them and stop for them.....The construction that never ends, daily lawnmowers, weed whackers, chain saws, fire trucks, ambulances, helicopters, jets, etc. So with all that I have dealt with, I am willing to travel for Internet!
You should consider North Carolina. Our governor stinks, but most everyone knows it and we'll be voting him out in November. There are liberal pockets (Asheville, Charlotte/Mecklenburg County, Durham), but there are plenty of conservative, family and freedom oriented people in this state. We moved here in 2019 from Arizona and our quality of life improved so much. My garden is thriving! There is land to buy out here--and it's beautiful.

I have never been to that area. If I get back to AZ then I will put that on my list for sure. I am wanting to see what happens with the next elections before I decide. [mod cut - political rhetoric]

I agree rent for awhile in an area before buying. Colorado might be a good.
