weekend open thread – September 24-25, 2022 — Ask a Supervisor


I lived in Phoenix for 10 years. I moved to Missouri in 2021 so it is a latest expertise:

execs: -lots of occasions/issues to do each in Phoenix and the encircling cities. in case you are into music there are at all times tons of excellent live shows of each style.

-amazing eating places for actually any delicacies you’ll be able to think about. numerous individuals have talked about Mexican eating places and that’s true however the number of ethnic cuisines is insane. wanna attempt Ethiopian? Peruvian? Filipino? polish? there are superb tremendous eating eating places and tremendous inexpensive native spots. I’ve lived all around the nation, 13 states and Arizona has the perfect restaurant scene fingers down.

-winter is unbelievable. I hate snowy Winters a lot. not halving to scrape ice, heat the automotive for 20 min, watch for plows, shovel, and so on is so good. your physique positively acclimated after a pair years. my first few years in AZ, I used to be in shorts in January. im not notably affected by warmth so the summers weren’t as dangerous for me as some on this thread. to be honest, when it’s nonetheless over 100 levels in October, it will get previous and over the 12 months I swear summer time obtained longer and longer however when you work indoors and have some indoor hobbies, it’s tremendous. or when you can journey in the summertime.

-close proximity to chill locations to go to. tremendous low cost, quick flights to Cali or Vegas, fast drives to Sedona, Tucson, Jerome or southern Utah.

Cons:

-if you may have children, the varsity system is trash. their group School community is definitely actually good although.

-if you may have extreme allergic reactions or are warmth delicate, you can be depressing 12 months spherical from both one or the opposite or each.

-traffic/drivers are terrible. each state thinks they’ve the worst drivers however please consider me. I’ve pushed on the shittiest roads within the greatest cities and Arizona is by itself degree. one of many BEST components of transferring for me has been this modification.

-none of the cities within the valley can sustain with the sheer inflow of individuals. site visitors is even worse in some way, hire has sky rocketed.ypur ideas on dwelling pricing will rely on the place you’re coming from. housing costs have doubled or extra since we purchased our home in 2017.

-the politics are fairly contentious proper now. you can find like-minded teams regardless of which means you lean however there’s a ton of vitriol on the floor degree

All in all, I feel there’s a lot to like about Arizona. for me, it was a “nice to go to however wouldn’t wanna stay there” kind of place. there’s a lot I miss about it however extra that I don’t miss. and quite a lot of it’s going to be subjective, in fact. I didn’t understand how a lot I missed seeing 4 seasons, inexperienced issues, homes that didn’t look precisely the identical all jammed collectively. I’ve lived tons of locations from main cities to rural backwoods and I’d nonetheless name Phoenix prime 3 for me, based mostly on issues I like.

I’m blissful to reply any questions you may have btw!
