I love Bullhead City because of the outdoor activity. It is minutes away from the Colorado River and Lake Mohave. The summers do get hot like over 100 for a few months hot. So the lake or river make for a perfect place to cool off. I also like that Bullhead City is a small community but is expanding. We just got our first Starbucks! Everyone in town seems to know someone that you may know. I like small towns. I prefer the close community and knowing ones neighbor to driving by everyday and going who lives there? Bullhead City does have a high transient population due to its affordable cost of living and climate. One popular attraction that draws populations to Bullhead City is that we are across from Laughlin,NV with more options for dining, shopping, and casinos. Bullhead city is also a high retirement population due to its amenities and low cost.
Review Bullhead City
Poor. It's what Bullhead has always been. I've lived my entire life in this town, save for years I went out to L.A. for college, and although it's grown over the years, it has not improved. High crime rates that can be directly connected with high drug use. Lack of education and available quality jobs mean children that stay here have very little opportunity to improve their situation. Many of the large employers in town seek only to take advantage of their employees, and it shows. I think this town could be something wonderful, but not if we don't get big business out.
Bullhead City is my hometown. I have lived in Bullhead my entire life, and so have most of my friends. Bullhead has a lot of issues on its own but as a city whole it's not too corrupt. By corrupt I mean drugs, crime, gang activity, etc. Growing up I enjoyed living here, besides the weather I never really has an issue with it, but now I'm all grown up. I'm realizing I want more than some river days at the park & going to Laughlin for a movie. I as a resident can see my city expanding and improving slowly but it's just not growing fast enough for my liking. It is a good city that holds many low income families like myself, and it has somewhat acceptable job opportunities. Everything I need is always either around the corner or a few blocks away. The people are kind and friendly & you can always find help here.
