As a parent you must love this town! It is small yet it has the essentials for a family. Relatively low crime, schools, stores, parks and awesome weather. One downside is... not too much entertainment such as concerts and sports stadiums. But that is the trade off for peace.

Somerton has small town charm with an adorable main street and lots of great neighbors. Surprisingly modern medical services available, short clinic wait times, great service and even medical instruction/employment opportunities. Seasonal festivities like corn fest, tamale festival, and pet-palooza make Somerton a great time for everyone. You should check it out sometime. There is only two street lights, I think, but some fun places to eat between them. I am not sure what more i can tell you, but if you are tired of big city bustle, and want to escape the rat race, you will find the sun spends rhe winters here. Being close to the Colorado river adds tons of opportunity for wet fun, boating, jet skiing, kayaking, fishing, and swimming.
Somerton in itself is a nice place especially in the suburbs, but there's no major thing in town except for its festivals. So you have to drive to Yuma or San Luis for mostly everything.
