Not just from California, but people from many other states are increasingly moving to Arizona to call the Grand Canyon State their home. It has plenty of educational and employment opportunities for all. Transport and utilities, mining, technology, and healthcare are some of the major sectors of the state. As far as the climate is concerned, it’s warm like California but definitely not so humid. Most parts of the Grand Canyon State don’t receive a lot of rainfall and experience cool and pleasant winters as well.

One of the main reasons for people (and it could be for you too) to move out of California is the skyrocketing living expenses. But the cost of living in Arizona is around 60% lower than that of California. Arizona also has a lower overall tax burden in comparison to many other U.S. states. It’s an exciting place to call home not just for the younger population but also for the retirees as it has no social security tax or estate tax.

If the liveliness and hub-hub of the Californian cities are what you’ll miss the most, Arizona can surely compensate for it with the variety of outdoor activities the state has to offer. From white water rafting and rock climbing to golfing and skiing, the landscapes of Arizona are suitable to enjoy a number of adventure activities. Arizona and California are also close-knit neighbors, so you’ll be able to carry out your interstate move without too much trouble.
