People considering living in the southwest should consider Arizona land for sale in the White Mountains rather than the lower desert. Why? It is because of the temperate climate, the scenic beauty, and the peaceful way of life!
While winters in this High Country are generally milder than in the Midwest and northeastern states, the summer season temperatures are much more comfortable in the Arizona land for sale in the northern high country than in the southern desert of the Phoenix-Pinal County-Tucson area. A summer day in the White Mountains ranges from 70 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. In the southern Arizona desert, temperatures over 110 are common. The fact that it is a “dry" heat is important but ceases to matter in temperatures over a hundred degrees.
2. The Beauty of the White Mountains
The White Mountains are a scenic wonderland of pine forests, lakes, and endless vistas. Arizona land for sale here provides a beautiful, awe-inspiring atmosphere you just won't find in the lower areas further south. The southern desert has a charm and beauty all its own, but you will not find the shade, the grass, or the water you will find in the White Mountains. Fishing, camping and hiking are big attractions for those who have chosen the White Mountains as the place to seek their Arizona land for sale.
3. Relaxation and Quietude
The towns in the White Mountains are small. The largest towns in the White Mountains are Show Low and Pinetop/Lakeside. The average population of these towns is 10,000. During the summer, the population increases by half or double. These towns are not large, by any means, but they are large enough to provide for the needs of nearby residents. For day-to-day supplies, there are growing small cities scattered throughout the high country. Unlike the fast-paced way of life in the cities of Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona land for sale in the White Mountains offers solitude and peace.
Life in the White Mountains is especially well suited for those whose careers can be transferred to a rural area, or retirees looking for a nice place to settle down, or young families seeking a wholesome outdoors lifestyle. In this age of technology, many people are finding ways to transfer their careers into less populated areas. If this describes you, then the White Mountains are a perfect place to raise your family.
