Having lived in Florence, AZ a relatively long time of 24 years, we have seen much happen here, largely for the better despite the encroachment of new housing developments. Florence, being a county seat town, home to the state prison, private prisons, a copper mine, etc. offers fairly decent employment. The town is inundated each winter with winter visitors who flee in April yet boost the economy. Several retirees call Florence home now, many of whom, are "snowbirds." The town endorses childrens sports, town events, parades on old Main Street, etc., and is an ideallic town to raise a family. Bill/Linda
We too live in Desert Gardens RV resort and we chose to winter here because it is NOT a big city and hope it never becomes one. We love the small town feel of Florence. It has a great hardware store, several good restaurants and a small grocery. Yes, it would be nice to have a bigger grocery store, but it is only 20 minutes to a nice Safeway in "new Florence". We make a monthly pilgrimage to the big city stores to stock up and make a day of it, shopping, visiting friends, taking in a movie. We love Florence.
First of all, it is a very small town and old towns. It doesn't help that it can be very spread out. There aren't many things conveniently around. The schools don't have as many kids as a city would. However, it takes just as long because of how spread out everything is. There is a certain water company that is always having problems. The water isn't very clean. Something is always wrong with it. Their area some unsafe parts of town like there is everywhere. There are plenty of dust storms because of all the farmland, which helps with the nauseating smell that permeates the air.
