Lived in the Coronado neighborhood up the street and that area is 5-10 years further along than Roosevelt. What nobody talks about is on every block there is one or two original residents whose family paid off the house decades ago. Almost always the junkiest house on the block with multiple cars parked in the front yard. They are ticked off that their property tax is skyrocketing and that the new residents are complaining about the state of their house. Made for interesting discussions on the neighborhood Facebook page on occasion.

Didn't happen that much, but on occasion the drug dealers who used to run those blocks would come back around and get into a turf war. We ended up with a dead body in the alley a stone's throw away from our house a few years ago. That was unnerving.

I've found Gilbert to be pretty laid back. Chandler too is laid back. Mesa is probably one of the least friendliest suburbs, but it's nowhere near as bad as Tucson. Tempe is ok. Most of Maricopa County is laid back from my experiences.

Maricopa County, Yuma County, and Flagstaff are probably the most laid back parts of Arizona. I've never been to Show Low, so can't speak for there. Page didn't seem laid back, though it's in Northern Arizona. Prescott was ok, but the people seemed very judgmental.

Personally, my favorite city in Arizona is Phoenix. That's where everything is and the people are nice for the most part.

I found people in Gilbert conservative and uptight. Quite a few Mormons as well (they definitely aren't laid back)

This is so dumb. Everyone has such a different perspective. Firebird thinks conservatives are uptight and unfriendly, I think leftists have mental health issues. See - different strokes for different folks.

I found communists to be super laidback... But that was in Cuba. Even more laidback with a cigar in hand and with a glass of rum on the rocks! I refuse to click on the poll because it lacks relevance. But I'd vote for Cuba if it was an option.

Would it be acceptable for the Op to ask an 80-year-old in Sun City to play a game of pool or sit down at their knitting table?

Don't hold your breath for sound medical theory from some real estate agent.
