I used to live in a small city of Golden Valley, AZ. It was a nice place for people who wanted a little bit more privacy. You could live in a house where your neighbor is far enough where you feel like you have your whole property by yourself. It was very hot and dry with a nice view of the desert and cactus.

The weather here is fantastic. It is cold, but hardly snows/ices over here. The heat in summer can be excruciating, but the spring and fall weather is amazing. You don't have to worry about being snowed in, if a tornado will pull your house away, or if you house will be swept away by tropical storms.
I feel safe, but I would worry about theft, because we leave apart from other-our houses are not close. This town most often is clear of crime. You can see sheriff's almost every day.
