When we were researching a place to relocate, we found a lot of good info here:
Give it a shot; it can’t hurt.
Other than Free Republic, that's my favorite website.
Prescott, AZ’s former terretorial capital (pronounced press-cut) is sort of a center of gun culture. Ruger has a factory there. Gunsite, a world famous training facility, is also located there. It’s a deep-red area, but if you need a dose of hippie, for some reason, the B&Bs and galleries of Jerome are just outside of time, and if you want a double-dose of hippie silliness, Sedona’s not too much farther. Grand Canyon is 1.5hrs away via Williams.
The landscape is pinyons and junipers rather than pine trees and hardwoods - it looks sort of like New Mexico above 5,000 ft.
Thanks for posting this link. Amazing information site. Now I know why our freeway into the city is so crowded - 90% of the population in our burb, which has doubled in population in the last ten years, drives alone to work!
City-data is a decent site, but the forums can be a PC nightmare...
