Qualify of Life

Our region has a special “flavor of life” that extends to all aspects of work, personal, and family life.  Throughout the year, area residents enjoy local festivals celebrating our heritage and nationally recognized concerts.  Our endless sunny skies grant residents a chance to explore historical petroglyphs at times of the year other parts of the country are buried in snow.  Low property taxes, low tuition rates, low costs of living, and low crime rates demonstrate that our style of life brings the highest level of satisfaction possible.
