Golden Valley Reviews

7 reviews
All Categories
Golden valley is heaven on Earth. Privacy, beautiful views and minimal crime. The primary complaint is the summer heat which is unbearable, but perfect weather the rest of the year. Close enough to Kingman for daily shopping, bullhead City for medical and Laughlin/Vegas for entertainment, while leaving a secluded relaxed feel for your daily life.

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.
