Have you heard of Kingman Arizona? If you have maybe you were just passing through on your way to Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon or maybe on your way to LA or Vegas. Possibly you had family in the area or you stopped to eat at one of the many restaurants along I-40 or just needed a quick pit stop. That what happened to us and we have been here of over 10 years now. Kingman’s beauty with it's surrounding mountains, many parks, beautiful sunsets and great quality of life just make you want to stay.
I love Kingman for many reasons, its culture, its diversity, its proximity. Our area is rich in history. Kingman was founded in the late 1800′s during the railroad and mining era. Kingman has roots with the actor Andy Devine, Route 66 winds through our town and there is the historic Beale Springs which was a stopping point for covered wagons when traveling through to the west coast.
We love our climate (it’s not too hot and it is not too cold) with very little snow. Our average high in the winter in January is 55 degrees. Our average summer high in July is only 95 degrees. Kingman is located between Phoenix and Las Vegas, Flagstaff and LA. We are near the Sedona and Grand Canyon plus there are over 1000 miles of shoreline within 1 hours drive from Kingman. Mohave county includes Lake Mead, Lake Havasu, Mohave desert and the Colorado River. There are some amazing mountains to hike with great off road trails and ghost towns. I love having community with a great sense of unity and that smaller town atmosphere without high crime yet still being close enough to larger city’s with any amenity you can think of. Las Vegas has some of the best entertainment, restaurants and shopping in the country and is less than 1.5 hr. away.
If you haven’t taken the time to explore Kingman, now is a great time to look at how our town is expanding and growing. We have a moderate growth rate and there are some very exciting projects getting ready to come to our area that I think anyone will enjoy.
