The town of Douglas, Arizona provides me with the basis, but I would not want to raise a family here. Living in Douglas, Arizona has been okay for me as I do not have children. The local school system does not have a very good reputation, so if you have children I would be concerned about them being educated here.
The best areas in Douglas, Arizona for me are the areas in which the town often hosts celebrations. The town often decorates the parks and people sing and dance the night away. Yes, on occasion the town throws a big fiesta.
The best part for me of being here in Douglas is that it is very affordable. Renting a place or buying a house is not as astronomical as it is in close areas. Overall, the city does seem safe on a daily basis; however, when the town throws big celebrations oftentimes you hear of more crime happening during those times. If you like to have fun and party on occasion, then this is the town for you.
