1. It’s Freaking Beautiful Here (Says Everyone!)
Multiple publications have named Flagstaff, Arizona as one of the top places in the United States to live, including Outside Magazine and Sunset Magazine. Outside Magazine Had this to say about Flagstaff:
“The median home price is reasonable and there are plenty of jobs in tourism, higher education, and manufacturing. Nestlé Purina PetCare has a plant here, and W. L. Gore has major offices. And it’s not like you have to be an elite athlete to enjoy cool, sunny days, as everyone from weathered Grand Canyon guides to fresh-faced Northern Arizona University students will tell you.”
Sunset Magazine had this glowing review of Flagstaff:
“For people looking to relocate for their postcareer life, Flagstaff is a great choice. The city’s setting—at the base of those mountains, with the Grand Canyon 90 minutes away—makes it as good as any in the West for outdoor recreation.”
