Anyone have ANY info on any of these places as to which is better regarding crime/safety, community, shopping, traffic, weather (which I'm assuming is about the same), etc, and ANYTHING ELSE you can think of regarding living or working in any of these two cities? Thanks!

I would stay away from Glendale. East Valley is a much better choice, Tempe, Chandler,Gilbert.

Are you relocating here from another state?

Yuma is great if you like seeing fields of lettuce,citrus trees and very low traffic in the summer.
It is a small town,but it doubles its size in the winter,when snow birds get here.
People in general are pretty laid back.
You hardly ever see agressive drivers.I came from CA,so I know what agressive is.
Its nice,I like it.Oh and BTW its a good place to raise kids.
Population is basically 1/2 white 1/2 hispanic.

This may be a little late but.....

GLENDALE is the best choice if you ask me.... LOTS of stuff to do, the city is very progressive and extremely family friendly/oriented. Glendale is a very clean city. Tempe on the other hand is ... well dirty with lots of trouble with crime. They do have a few nice attractions, like the Tempe Town Lake and ASU (a attractive PARTY SCHOOL ... so you figure that out). Tempe is land locked and has very little new housing areas there.

Glendale has the Coyote's arena and the Arizona Chickens (not a Cardinal fan) stadium. The area is growing rapidly and there are a lot of nice NEW housing areas. Police and Fire protection is supurb. ASU West is right on the border of Glendale and Phoenix.

If I had to choose between the two, I would definately choose GLENDALE!

I'd have to choose Tempe. Speaking as a resident, I hate Glendale. The planners are morons. Take the Westgate area. You'd think, with that much parking space needed, they'd actually build parking GARAGES. But no, the morons decided to build an endless amount of PARKING LOTS. What's really sad about the whole thing, is that Hickman's Egg Ranch is going the way of a parking lot. That site has, believe it or not, signifigance in this city. BUT NO.

Idiots.

Tempe on the other hand is urbanizing its downtown, with various highrise projects, and revitalization. The streets are filled with life, people having fun. Something you will not see (to the same extent), anywhere else in the valley. Tempe is, in my opinion, by far, the best city in the valley.

I don't think he meant gross Tempe by ASU like North, I think he may mean South Tempe between Chandler and Ahwatukee.
