    Morman community and family orientated. The weather in winter is sunny and warm ; summers are hot. Lots of events all year around . Tucson only 45 min away. Farming, ranching, retirees.

    Great people with a nice small town feel, and although there aren't a lot of amenities in the town proper, being near both Tucson and Sierra Vista allow for entertainment a short drive away.

    I live and work in this town. It has a great small town feel to it. Everyone knows everyone. I would like to see more activities for kids in town.
