Are you searching for wide-open spaces or an enriching environment to call your new home? The great state of Arizona offers renowned restaurants, shopping, abundant wildlife, centuries-old archaeological sites, and various sports to welcome new residents.

Since spring is one of the best times of year to move to Arizona, here are the top reasons you should pack your bags and head for the Grand Canyon state!

Beautiful Climate

There are many reasons people from all different states decide to move to Arizona, but one of the top reasons is the beautiful sunny climate. The state boasts an average of over 320 days of sunshine a year, and Phoenix, the state capital, and its most populous city, receives more sunny days each year than any other metropolitan area in the country! Moving to sunny Arizona is a great opportunity for people who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or people who are simply sick and tired of the long cold winter months.

Endless Outdoor Activities

If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, moving to Arizona is highly recommended. Not only does this state hold the 277 miles long Grand Canyon, but there is plenty of desert terrain for hiking, cycling, mountain biking, rock climbing, fishing, boating, and even horseback riding. Arizona’s beautiful mountain ranges and rock formations make the perfect backdrop for one-of-a-kind sunrises and sunsets.

Easy Driving

If you’re moving to Arizona from Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, San Jose, or Miami, you’ll notice the difference in traffic. Phoenix has a planned grid, and it’s easy to figure out how to get where you want to go, even without using a map or GPS. Convenient highways throughout the state provide quick access to your intended destination, and traffic is manageable, especially if you come from a very populated large city. Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco take the top 3 places for most congested cities in the country when it comes to traffic.

If you have decided Arizona is the place for you, you must seek a professional real estate agent for assistance. I am a valley native born and raised in the Phoenix Metropolitan area, and I have a great love and appreciation for the beautiful state of Arizona. I have earned my Az Realty Lady title by helping over 1,000 buyers find their perfect homes.
