Arizona is for old people. Myth: According to census; around 15% of the population is over 65. Most of the States in the Eastern half of the U.S. have a higher percentage. AZ is around 22.

Arizona is hot. Myth: The Northern half of the state is not. Flagstaff, Sedona, and part of Prescott is a forest. The average temperature in those areas in the summer is around 85 degrees. In the winter they get snow as well. Flagstaff is actually the 8th snowiest city in America.

The lower half of the state (Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma) is hot during the summer, but its a tolerable dry heat. Although its sunny 330 days of the year, that's why almost every house has a pool in the backyard. And every building has A/C set to like 75ish. So just limit being outside during the day from June to August.

Yep. I like being in Prescott for my college since I still get to see snow (not nearly as much as back home in Maine mind you but I still see some) and it's comfortable here. 85 with no humidity is amazing. Hell 110 with no humidity is wonderful compared to 102 with 100% humidity, I'm not a fan of drinking the air damn it.

I haven't been to Maine, the furthest north I've been is New Jersey, and I just got back from being in record highs in North Carolina, but if its anything like those I much prefer Phoenix's dry heat. A couple days I took clothes to wear and they were already wet from how humid it was before I even put them on.

I've lived here 16 years and I can tell you it's a weird state.
We have beautiful weather for eight months and a living hell for the other four. This year hasn't been as hot though.
There really isn't nothing to do for young people except going to the movies and the mall. There's clubs but they're mostly filled with the sort of people I don't like,
We have a cool art museum and some food from all oliver the world!
I wish people were more friendly though.
I like it but I can't imagine myself living here for the rest if my life.

Yeah, in general the East Coast tends to be hell for folks from the Western part of the US while East Coasters basically thrive over on the West Coast and in the desert because we escape the humidity while dealing with slightly higher temperatures. Maine normally hits 102-105 in the summer (late July to late August) coupled with at least 80% humidity when it isn't raining and having almost 100% humidity when it is raining (it feels like you are drinking the air). Likewise in the winter because the air is basically frozen from being so moisturized we see temps of -20 degrees F before windchill and around -40 degrees F after windchill. Florida is much worse, basically Maine is the easiest you'll get off of when it comes to humidity on the East Coast, at least in the summer. The winter is a whole 'nother ballgame with our super-blizzards aka NorEaster's because it's literally a frozen Hurricane flinging ice shards instead of heavy rain.

The East Coast will wreck those unprepared, sort of like weather in Japan. Maine and Japan have very similar climates, temperature ranges and humidity levels interestingly enough.

Where else can you go water skiing in the morning and then snowboard or ski in the afternoon.

Born and raised here, summers don't bother me since it does chase the snowbirds away.

Arizona's a pretty nice place to live during the winter, but living here in the summer is pure hell.
