We looked all around the Phoenix area before selecting Glendale. Close proximity to medical help was a must, as was easy access to shopping, entertainment and outdoor activities. Although we no longer have children in school, good schools were also a priority. To our surprise the church we were interested in, happens to almost be across the street. Having the feeling of space and being near the mountains was important to us as well, during our search. Our neighbors are wonderful and we have a lovely mountain view from our back patio. A quick drive/walk gets one to hiking and other outdoor activities. At this time, it does not feel as congested as other parts of the Phoenix area. City water was also a priority as some of the builders we looked at are subsidizing water costs. Later on that could become an expensive proposition. When asked what is not to like, I am still thinking about it and haven't come up with anything.

Our neighborhood nests up to a mountain and there is this wonderful feeling of openness. Homes and subdivisions around us are all well maintained and attractive. It seems all around there are beautiful views in every direction. On the downside, traffic here is crazy near the 101 access. At first we thought all of the wild, fast and rude drivers were in some of the more well to do areas, where we had vacationed, but it turns out they are out in force everywhere. At least AZ has tried to plan ahead for roads/routes to try to handle the traffic. Some of the large cities in the Midwest pale in comparison on that issue.
