Hello. I am a 24 year old single female who recently graduated from college with a degree in Health Administration. I am looking to relocate soon. I have places in mind, but I would like to get information on them. Phoenix is at the top of my list. I would like to know what would be the best area for me to live. I like to go out to local restaurants, movies, and of course some bars and clubs. I want to live somewhere inexpensive as well (i'm looking to rent an apartment or condo, not ready to buy yet). And if I could, somewhere near hospitals or other medical facilities. Thank you so much for your replies. They are greatly appreciated

Phoenix is very large, and there are places across the valley that could meet your requirements. It's best to find employement first, then look at what areas to live.

Tempe, South Scottsdale, or Central Phoenix may serve your needs best. The vibe will be more progressive and you will have places to go. I agree you should get hired first though. The economy has taken a hit here.

I'm 23 and moved to Phoenix a year and a half ago. I would definitely recommend the Scottsdale area. Downtown Phoenix has no good options for nightlife... unless you're ghetto, in which case it has tons of options.

Tempe is nice and fun but its hard to break in and make friends in that scene as most of them are college students. So, unless you're a college student it will be hard to meet people.

Scottsdale (Old Town area) is where a lot of young professionals reside and the easiest place I found to meet people at. The city itself is ritzy and pretentious but if you can get over that it can be pretty fun. It has more options than anywhere else for bars and restaurants. There's also a fair amount of hospitals it seems, but you'll find that anywhere in Phoenix.
