The area is nice and the people are friendly. The weather is very hot in the summers. In the winter, many older people migrate to the foothills from more northern states/countries. Many older drivers cause crashes and drive very slow.

Small area suburb outside of Yuma, AZ. This area has exploded in the last 10 years and continues to expand. There are plenty of small shops and store a few minutes from anywhere and within a few extra minutes you can access Yuma. However, the downside is the extremely hot summers (100+) and the increased snowbird population that doubles the number of people during the winter.
Paw's and Tails is a pet store about 3 minutes away from my house. The staff is great, very friendly and helpful. They are very down to earth, and provide excellent customer service. I would rather pay a little bit more here and get good service rather than go to a big box store and get bad service. I would really recommend going here for your pet's needs!
