The crime was very low and my experience was very nice. The weather was hot. There were many fun things to do there. I went to a baseball game. It was a lot of fun.

the baseball game was fun and also the food in the area was amazing

Crime was usually seen at least every day, with shootings or gun violence at fast food restaurants at least once a month. A university began volunteering in the community and would clean the streets, offer services, etc. The roads are bumpy and old, and the drivers are seemingly unsafe and run red lights/cut people off all the time. There are homeless people on every corner and freeway enterence.

There is a Joyride Taco and Federal Pizza on central and camelback that has great food, and The Biltmore shopping area is a reasonably safe mall with lots of stores and places to eat.

The crime was average for a large city. There was always something to do. A variety of entertainment, excellent nightlife and plenty of good food.

Downtown Tempe was the favorite hangout with plenty of shops, entertainment, and a diverse culture. The downside of the Phoenix area was the oppressive heat and the polluted air.

Phoenix is one of the coolest places I've ever visited. There is so much cool stuff to do in the city and nearby.

There's a great mix of indoors and outdoors, with great life and attractions within the city of Phoenix and great wildlife areas nearby.

The crime is pretty normal for a city

The heat is unbearable in the Summer. It is nice in the Winter. People there are nice as well.

The crime rate is less than most places but it has its shares like any other place. The Schooling is poor, it seems like they don't care about who is learning, just about getting paid. Did I mention it's scalding hot here?

People are a lot friendlier here, compared to most cities, but the drug rate (meth) is crazy out of control. Like I stated the schooling is horrible and it's hard to find jobs.
