My wife and I are planning to come check out Kingman for an extended stay, and maybe permanent. We are coming from North Carolina and it is amazing how isolated Kingman seems to be on a map. I was curious, is it is as isolated as it looks?

Thanks

Not really. We're from California and we have seen Kingman grow over the last 10 years. It is near Laughlin Nevada for gambling and about 1 hour 20 minutes from Vegas. If you go the other direction, you hit Phoenix and other areas closer than Phoenix that have grown tremendously. It's also close to Bullhead City and Lake Havasu. Kingman had a lot of proposals for development a few years back, but due to the depressed economy, most individuals are waiting. A person can built a very nice home there inexpensively.

Thanks for the reply. It just struck me as I was comparing Arizona to Eastern states on a road atlas how sparse it seems in that part of AZ. Maybe it's because there are so many little towns in East coast states that fill the map as opposed to the open areas of AZ where there aren't really any named towns for miles and miles. Is that a reasonable assessment?

It just appears that way because we have bigger playgrounds!

It's a pretty decent town. It's not really "isolated" but there definitely could be more here. Stockton Hill road is nice and I like the highway setup through town. "Downtown" is lacking though. Overall it's alright.

Cool. Thanks for the replies. I guess we will see for ourselves as we are planning a one way trip there in January. Already made a good connection for a workspace rental for my business and a place to stay, so Kingman, here we come!

If you like A town with half the population living in trailers and the main shopping center being Walmart. If so, welcome. Don't plan on enjoying restaurants either, sub par at best compared to where I've been.
