      Great little town

      I love this little town. Not a lot of attraction, no fancy restaurants, But what's here I love. The climate is awesome. I'm kind of astonished to see the criticism about heat? Really lolol, you think this is hot. You need to move to Louisiana were I've lived all my life till now, and suffocate in the tropical humidity while your slapping at the 10 mosquitoes on your legs and arms. And the winters with high humidity are awful. I'll stay here, and love it. The hills, Prescott right down the road, Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon, Grand Canyon practically in your back yards. What an hour and a half away to each?. Ans what a wonderful place to ride a motorcycle. I guess when you grow up in a wonderful place like this, and dont know anything else. Maybe you'll find fault. I'm done.

      I’ve lived in Chino Valley, AZ for a little more than 4 years. I must say that this is one of the more expensive areas in AZ as oppose to other cities such as Phoenix and Kingsman. I love living here except in the summer. Summer temperatures around these parts can soar past the 100’s.

      This is a great area for kids, both young and teens. The schools in Chino Valley are better than other parts of Arizona I have found. I do however wish that there were more places to shop. They have about 2 major grocery stores here. I hope more grocery stores; clothing stores and restaurants are added to this area. Fast food restaurants such as Sonic and Taco Bell can be located here.

      Although most places are within walking distance of each other, I still wish there were more means of public transportation. Some of the best areas in Chino Valley can be found near the 89, there is a small strip mall.

      No wonder Chino Valley is ranked so low. It's full of modular homes that appear to be 50 years old and not very well kept. Modular homes are surrounded by trash outside and perhaps 3 or 4 washing machines that don't work. Broken down cars sitting outside and broken motorcycles. Weeds grown up all around as these people do not care to take care of their property. And there is a high crime rate in that neighborhood. Just drive down E. Road 2 North and you'll see all the trash on both sides of this road. Chino Valley is a very poor town and the Town cannot afford to repair the roads for it's citizens living here. So you better have a 4 wheel drive or truck. Any small car and your alignment and tires will suffer from all the pot holes. Chino Valley doesn't have any money to make improvements. There is only one grocery store to shop at. The Town Council made an agreement with Safeway that there would not be any competition. So everyone is stuck shopping at one grocery store unless you drive down to Prescott Valley or Prescott to shop at Fry's, Sprouts and Trader Joe's. And of course there is a Costco in Prescott. You wouldn't want to shop in Chino Valley anyway, the sales tax is a whopping 10.35%. Small restaurants don't last long. There are mostly food trucks along the 89 selling high calorie expensive food. Not very healthy living. The Town Council is a "Good Old Boy" mentality and the construction inspections are basically ignored. It's very dry and windy here. You'll have a hard time breathing and your skin will itch constantly. Dust will be blowing in to your house every day. Too far from major Hospitals and doctors. You'll have to drive in to Prescott Valley or Prescott for medical care. There aren't any decent malls or stores to shop at. We drive down to Chandler, Scottsdale, Peoria and Glendale to shop and find fantastic restaurants. The City Sewer bill is $65/month and that's added on to your water bill. Sam's Club closed up. Furniture stores have closed. The Gateway Mall is virtually empty. And the one airline that flew out of Prescott Airport discontinued it's flights. Lot's of bugs, dust and weeds blowing all over in Chino Valley. Your full time job after you retire will be killing weeds and spraying for bugs all Summer. No night life here. Sure there are a few bars, but they don't provide a menu with food. Shopko is closing it's store that was only here for 2 years. Dining has only 3 decent places. Don't even go to Boon Fire Restaurant. Rumor has it, that they'll be closing soon. So no, Chino Valley should be rated much lower with Yuma, AZ.
