10 Places in Arizona You Should NEVER Move To

10 Places in Arizona You Should NEVER Move To

Move to these places and you’re gonna regret it big time!

Arizona. It’s the second-fastest growing state in the U.S. People are flocking here because of its sunny weather, affordability and a wide variety of entertainment options – from celebrity-owned restaurants to outdoor festivals. The Copper State is also home to one of the seven natural wonders of the world…you know, the Grand Canyon. But despite 320 sunny days each year, not every city in Arizona is a bright spot. Today, we’re talking about the places you don’t want to live here.

We’ve looked at a bunch of data, you know – crime, poverty, the quality of schools and home prices. Plus, we took into account YOUR opinion – that’s right – you Arizonans have a lot to say about which places in your states are great and which are not so great. So, while Arizona is known as a world-famous tourist destination…these are some places to leave off your itinerary.

    Kingman AZ has to be the strangest town I’ve ever lived in. Why is it not on the list? I moved here from Mesa and regret it

  2. josh brown on March 18, 2023 at 5:43 am

    Cliff castle isn’t even in Verde

  3. hugh salter on March 18, 2023 at 5:45 am

    scottsdale is shit

    Ok, I live in Snowflake, and you’ve definitely done the town dirty. Making us sound like we’re a bunch of drug addicted bums. This isn’t LA. Literally everywhere you go in the world is gonna have some poor people and some that live differently than you. We are a great community full of wonderful people that will help you out if you needed it. Sure, it can be a bit boring if you’re used to big city activities. But here, you can go off roading pretty much anywhere, go target shooting in a bunch of places in the woods, go hunting… And if you wanted, just drive three hours to Phoenix for the weekend and do stuff there. It’s a very pretty drive anyway. Also, we get snow every year, so your statement of it being a rare thing is also false. We may not get as much as Show Low and Pinetop, but we get it. I love this town very much, and I never want to leave it.

    I Love Guadalupe AZ my grandparents are from there and have lots of family living there.I own like half the town. My great grandma bought land there and it’s mine. I think Tempe Arizona owes me some money.

  6. M Lewis on March 18, 2023 at 5:55 am

    -so much theft. I have lost a lot to the thieves in West Phoenix.

  7. Elizabetchyerass on March 18, 2023 at 5:56 am

    Apache Junction is so bad, I ain’t ever leavin…

  8. RickSnowman on March 18, 2023 at 5:57 am

    this seriously needs an update… camp Verde is whare lots of people are trying to get out to.. and apache junc.. is outragously expensive… alot has changed in just a year

  9. Carol St. John on March 18, 2023 at 5:57 am

    Nick, love your suggestions for what residents can do to improve their communities. BTW, are you single?

  10. Mystic Bengals on March 18, 2023 at 6:01 am

    Yup this guy has never been to Arizona, much less tried to live in Arizona. The houses are all insanely expensive. Shockingly expensive everywhere. I was stunned to learn a gorgeous huge three story modern home in one of the nicest towns in a Indiana was worth like $250,000 to maybe $300,000. A falling down shack, huge holes in rotted out roof, plumbing totally rusted out, walls rotted and stripped apart in a tiny barren dirt lot in Arizona, in the worst area of Maricopa county is $100,000 or more… Maybe a falling apart trailer home rarely can be bought for about $70,000 in a bad area. Etc. Anything almost decent in Maricopa county is about $500,000 and up, usually up. Prices aren’t much cheaper in small towns extremely rural. Etc

    What is going on? 💅🏻

  12. John Campbell on March 18, 2023 at 6:04 am

    Lived in Arizona for 24 years. We moved to Kentucky 2 years ago. Best decision we ever made was to leave.

    That Waffle House by Guadalupe, got torn down and is currently being rebuilt, so they don’t even have a Waffle House lmao been living in arizona my whole life, the worst town I lived in was tombstone az. Hate that place now. Oh and flagstaff, haven’t lived there but I think it’s overrated.

  15. Bark Ross on March 18, 2023 at 6:15 am

    Bro some places in Apache junction are amazing though

  16. Heather Hansen on March 18, 2023 at 6:15 am

    Sadly he’s not wrong. I unfortunately moved to Coolidge because of the rental hikes and I HATE IT! No jobs, the place is ugly!!!! Its just littered with run down homes trash empty building no shops no scenery, everything is so far away! I’m trying to get out of my lease. The homes are shit, power is high, water is high and they do not accept the M power card here so my bills have doubled! I’m leaving as soon as I can!!!!! Coolidge is THE WORST and it smells bad!!!!

  17. Septimus Severis Alpha on March 18, 2023 at 6:17 am

    As soon as you mentioned crime in the Hispanic dominant town of Toleson you immediately start showing black people…. Not cool sir. I don’t subscribe to stereotypes of anyone anymore I cannot support that way of thinking and programming in 2023. *Un-Sub*

  18. Ryan Dachenhausen on March 18, 2023 at 6:17 am

    Take a look at Cibecue and you’ll make it your new #1.

  19. reneek on March 18, 2023 at 6:18 am

    Eloy Arizona is the way it is because the government took all the native American land! Screw the government give them back their damn land.

  20. hugh salter on March 18, 2023 at 6:18 am

    i still want to go home flake is a prominent LDS name you are not really welcome in snowflake unless you are LDS

  21. Donna Gonçalves on March 18, 2023 at 6:19 am

    I don’t agree with Apache Junction

  22. Heather Marie Spiritual Junkie on March 18, 2023 at 6:20 am

    Apparently you have never been there

  23. Susan McMichael on March 18, 2023 at 6:23 am

    Thank our Biden/Harris administration for the drug issues.

  25. B. Johnson AZ on March 18, 2023 at 6:24 am

    With every California yuppie that moves here, it gets worse and worse.

  26. Ashton Brown on March 18, 2023 at 6:26 am

    Heh, I used to live in Coolidge.

  27. SlowCountryBoy on March 18, 2023 at 6:27 am

    Dude, why did you speak so well about Snowflake. You should have mentioned that each resident owns 20-30 firearms and are not affraid to use them. People here say grace before meals, say yes sir/yes ma’m. People here read their bible, go to church, are not pro gay or lgbtycsfuckwnpa and the rest of the alphabet made up genders. Mothers will knock you the f*ck out if you are male and go into a girls bathroom (due to youtube community standards I will not convey what fathers will do to you). Kids here play in the dirt and actually get filthy with dirt and mud. Kids ride motorcycles, fire real bullets out of real rifles and hand guns. Kids are taugh to work for what they want. Kids here aspire to become something useful, they train for jobs or learn to perform services that earn them money. Kids as young 7 work to pay for their own cell phone and get their homework done too. Other kids are homeschooled. Kids here work with and care for stinky animals. They get horse shitt and cow pie on their boots and tend to show up for school like that. People do not care for fauchi’s face diapers (masks).
    People here raise cows, pigs, chickens, and other four legged animals; and we all know how stinky they get get!!
    This is truly a bad place for liberal minded commiefornians, nueva yorkers, shitcagoins, philly-cheesians and other liberals. There is no free welfare here, no free cheese, no free milk, no free beer and wine, no free housing!! If you move here and you attempt to comitt a crime here you might be sshott pursuant to A.R.S 13-411!!
    Oh, we have all heard of hanging judges, we have at least one here in town!! Your best bet, stay the f*ck out.

  28. Military gang on March 18, 2023 at 6:27 am

    … even tho I live in Tucson I don’t live in the south i like in the southwest

  29. Brother Ruddlock on March 18, 2023 at 6:28 am

    This guy is absolutely right, it’s terrible in Arizona. Hot and dangerous, don’t move here. Definitely stay where you are, or go to Texas, it’s great there. Don’t come to Arizona anymore.

  30. A. JAY on March 18, 2023 at 6:28 am


  31. Richard Fettig on March 18, 2023 at 6:28 am

    going to be a fun place to be when the water runs out !

  32. Kim D on March 18, 2023 at 6:28 am

    cannot listen to your video

  33. Ayn Rand is a fraud on March 18, 2023 at 6:29 am

    Guadalupe people are very nice. Ash Fork is a sad town, it should have been #1.

  34. KASPER on March 18, 2023 at 6:30 am

    I live in yuma rite next to San luis 928 shiii yalllllll

  35. Ward Fittings on March 18, 2023 at 6:31 am

    A lot of retirees live Apache Junction and East Mesa, of course they don’t work, unless they want to.

  36. Dandb Morris on March 18, 2023 at 6:32 am

    I lived in for out of the 10 and there shitholes

  37. Foxy Grandpa on March 18, 2023 at 6:33 am

    Well, I have to respectfully disagree with this list. At least they are real towns with real people. #1 on my list of the worst places in Arizona is beautiful Snottsdale. A phony town with lots of phony people who want you to believe that they represent Arizona all the while plying you with bars and restaurants that serve miniscule portions of the fad food of the day. I don’t even want to go there.

  38. Austin Platt on March 18, 2023 at 6:34 am

    Affordability? LOL.

  39. jim h on March 18, 2023 at 6:35 am

    I think your low temp for Snowflake is way off. Snowflake gets snow

  40. frank rizzo on March 18, 2023 at 6:35 am

    Tolleson problem is GHETTO RATS imported from California and CALHOLES in General! FJB!

  41. josh brown on March 18, 2023 at 6:35 am

    Winslow is also east of flag

  42. Nataani Webb on March 18, 2023 at 6:38 am

    What about the Navajo Nation. This is Native American land first. I’ve been to all that crime street. I can see a lot of of you never been to prison in Arizona like me. We have a big prison population too

  43. Levi Long on March 18, 2023 at 6:39 am

    Ok so, I disagree with EVERY ONE OF THESE. Have you even BEEN to all these places?! Almost every fact you give was wrong. Crime raté out here in the small towns of AZ is WAYYYY lower than in the city. Try to actually GO to these places and then remake the vid.

  44. Maria Brambila on March 18, 2023 at 6:39 am

    4 football players came out of Eloy Az…

  45. DL9769 on March 18, 2023 at 6:39 am

    coming from someone who lived in San Luis Arizona my whole life, it’s an awful place for any young person who is looking for a good future. never heard of crime here but moving to phoenix since there’s no work here!!

  46. lx300 on March 18, 2023 at 6:40 am

    We get it, the worse towns are the poorest. It sucks to be poor, but then again, that’s why Arizona is so affordable. People often celebrate the fact that people move to Arizona, but little do they know that the ones who move to Arizona are the peasants that couldn’t make it in more expensive states.

  47. reneek on March 18, 2023 at 6:40 am

    Hey mister get a life get a real job instead of talking snack about towns. You know what I’ll buy you a house in Eloy Arizona maybe somebody will shut your trap.

  48. Cecilia Martinez on March 18, 2023 at 6:40 am

    Thanks for including Winslow I effing hate it there!!

  49. Christian Rodríguez on March 18, 2023 at 6:41 am

    About right but a teeny tiny bit over done.. not as bad…

  50. HeavyMetal One64 on March 18, 2023 at 6:41 am

    Love seeing channels like this hate on Snowflake….stay away lol you’re doing great work!
