The housing in this area is very diverse. In the area called Kings Ranch, the houses are nicer, closer together, and look more similar. Where I live, the houses are all different in many aspects and are spread far apart. In my area, the houses are also nicer. In other parts of Black Canyon City, there are mobile homes and trailer parks. Many of the lots are large, but many of them are also not very well kept. Because it centered in the desert, there is a lot of wild life roaming around, and there is a variety of plants and trees, including a variety of different cacti. There are not many abandoned properties. The cost of housing and utilities is average. The best places to reside are where I live as well as Kings Ranch.
