A friendly predominantly Hispanic community, not the most exciting place, but certainly a town for the average family, and a place that is continuously growing and upgrading, if a little slowly. There could be more social areas, as currently there are only restaurants, one movie theater, and some rather average parks. A train divides the city.. .which can make things kinda slow.. but not often! The downtown area is especially colorful, however.

Nogales is a beautiful border town to mexico located in southern Arizona. It is full of great hispanic culture and people. Its a great town to visit because it gives you a huge taste of the Mexican culture and if intrested you can even visit Mexico by crossing the border. There is also a huge produce business and its amazing to see all fruits and vegtables get distributed all over the U.S. Education and sports are huge in this amazing town as it has helped open doors for students on continuing their academic and athletic career. One thing i would change is just giving more support towards schools and students. There is ALOT of potential in Nogales’s young generation and slowly it has been gaining more and more support.
Nogales is a small beautiful town next to the US and Mexico border. It is a great little town to for a family, where your kids can grow without the hassle of big cities. Public and private schools offer great education. Nogales is a safe little quiet town. Since its major income comes from produce you do get a lot of semi truck traffic in the freeway. But other than that it is fantastic.
