You want to move! But where should you move to?
Hello! Are you asking yourself, “where should I move to?” I have asked myself that same question over and over again. I started out in Washington, DC and I was fed up with the cold winters and wanted to move. There are a lot of places to move to and Arizona was one place that popped in my head over and over again.
I love Arizona, and let me start with the reasons why. The winters here are very mild, they get down to around 30-40 degrees and you can drive 3 hours north and be in 6 feet deep snow in Flagstaff. Yes, you have hot summers, but they last about 4 months and it’s over. You also don’t spend a whole lot of time outside, so its not like you really notice.
The second reason I love Arizona is becaue of the location. I can be in the mountains in 3 hours, San Diego in 6 hours, LA in 8 hours and the beach in 4 hours. I love that I am not “stuck” in the hot weather. I can go pretty much any where I want to go, and get away from the heat. I also, love that you can get a flight out of Arizona into any major city for really cheap.
I have lived in Pittsburgh, Wyoming, Washington, DC, Maryland, and Austin TX. So I know what a lot of the country is like. I lived in Austin, TX, it was a great place, but more of a college town than a place to go and raise children. Now please don’t email me if you are from Austin, its just my point of view. I lived there for about two years, and moved my way back to Arizona. I have never moved back to ANY city after moving away, so I really think that says a lot.
Oh, yes! One more thing before I forget. Yes we have scorpions, yes we have snakes, but in the 6 years that I have lived here, I have not seen either one. They are around, but we do not have hurricanes, nor tornados, no earthquakes and no major storms that take out a whole town. Lets face it, every city has its good and bad, however if your bad out weighs the good, maybe its time to move.
