Cochise County is a great place to live and has a large quantity of history and things to do to offer its residents. There are the many ghost towns and San Pedro River to a gigantic assortment of foods that are hard to find anywhere else.
The neighborhood is quiet. The great thing about the area is everything is near by and there is no traffic like in the big city. It is safe as I am in a military town.
