Top 10 Worst towns in Arizona. Arizona has great places to live, not the towns on this list.


what is going on everyone how’s your
world spinning one of my favorite movies of all time is raising Arizona
you’ve never seen this movie this was a strange comedy with Nicolas Cage not the
Nicolas Cage most of you know today the Nic Cage that did great movies not those
straight-to-video turds that he’s been putting out probably the last decade or
so movies like raising Arizona and many
others paint Arizona and its residents in a not so favorable light movies like
these make them look like they fall into one of four categories white trash
living in a trailer park people that haven’t realized the Old West has been
over for some time now sun-baked retirees and drunk college guns now they
do have those people more than their fair share I would say but the real
Arizona also has intelligent people living in great cities like Phoenix
Tucson and Flagstaff that’s just a few but as usual on this channel that’s not
what people want to hear about they want to hear the negatives about locations so
that’s what I’m giving you we’re gonna look at the not-so-great places to live
in Arizona so turn up the air-conditioning and watch my top 10
worst towns in Arizona number 10 Spring Valley
Spring Valley has roughly 21 hundred residents five miles north of Phoenix a
very small community that obviously doesn’t have trouble finding work it’s
hardly existent unemployment rate of 0.8% is normally something you celebrate
not here of those who do work it’s still likely they’re living in poverty we can
tell this by its poverty rate of 44 percent and the percentage of mobile
homes and trash fires kind of tell us that too
the income per capita is only around $18,000 a year
36% lower than the national average so this is basically a place that has jobs
but of those people that do have the jobs about 90% of her around minimum
wage and stop typing yes we get it they have jobs at least they have jobs we get
it all the time they have jobs they’re just not really great jobs number nine
Paulding Paulding is a small community about 26 miles north of Prescott and is
home to about 5,000 residents of these residents only about 75% have graduated
high school there’s only one school in town in the average test score 71
percent lower than the national average this town looks like at one point they
had a really good manufactured home salesman it also looks like it’s very
temporary like everyone plans on moving someday
and they want to take their homes and all their stuff with them number eight
ash fork ash fork Arizona is a tiny town of only about 750 residents along the
historic route 66 and stop typing I know some of you will call it route 66 anyway
moving on surprisingly for such a small town there’s plenty of work which helps
with their an employment rate which is at 2% however like other places on this
list they have a seriously bad poverty level of 68 percent sixty-eight percent
of these people live below the poverty line the income per capita is roughly
ten thousand dollars making things very hard on the residents they do however
have something really strange in the middle of town a high school a high
school with a decent football field now when you look at this place on the map
you’d think they don’t have enough people to field a chess team much less a
football team really weird number seven Golden Valley Golden Valley Arizona has
about eight thousand residents more usually very bored this small town has
nothing to do unless of course you consider daydreaming about leaving
Golden Valley has something to do then yeah there’s plenty of that there’s one
gas station to church a family owned restaurant and a medical office anything
else you need you might have to make the trip to Kingman which is about 20
minutes away with slightly more options now I’ve been to Kingman it’s really not
a place many people look forward to going to number six Lake Montezuma Lake
Montezuma is a small town of about 5,000 residents surrounding a little tiny lake
called Lake Montezuma this isn’t really a lake it’s a pond I’m not sure who
decided to call it a lake but they were exaggerating a bunch calling this place
a lake is like calling me an underwear model because I own underwear makes no
sense it seems like education in this town is the least of their worries
there’s two schools here three if you include the school for troubled teens
which is always great to have in town sedona sky Academy the average test
score in Lake Montezuma is 73% lower than the national average number five
Cameron Cameron Arizona is about an hour drive north of Flagstaff with just over
eleven hundred residents weather here can get pretty brutal in the winters
temperatures get as low as ten degrees Fahrenheit while in the summers it
easily gets into the triple digits for what seems like months at a time not
only is the weather but so is the pollution here they have a
way to rate pollution it’s called the pollution index Cameron has a pollution
index that is 201 percent higher than the national average what’s up with
these people their pollution is so bad it’s like they have an oil well that’s
been on fire for years and they’re not telling anyone about it
number four miracle valley miracle valley arizona is everything a miracle
is not the town has a population of only 750 residents with the overall crime
rate of eighty-five percent higher than the national average this town also has
some violent history thinks the miracle Valley shootout in the early 80s where
three hundred members of the Christ miracle healing center moved into town
from Mississippi and Chicago the group had some beliefs resulting in five young
children passing away due to the group’s refusal to seek medical attention
tensions rose within the community ultimately leading some church members
confronting local authorities who showed up to serve traffic warrants a shootout
occurred leaving two church members dead and seven officers injured now there was
a couple other incidents before that but this is the final thing that’s really
what ended this whole thing is the culmination all of the other stats of
this place are graded a big fat F with the exception of housing costs that gets
an A+ because nobody really wants to live here number-three Fredonia Fredonia
arizona is a very small town of only about a thousand residents it’s close to
the Utah border the unemployment rate in this town isn’t the absolute worst seven
percent still not good ashlee by 2018-2019 standards back in 2010 that
was pretty good unemployment rate but not now so while it’s not impossible to
find work here it’s definitely hard to get by even if you do have a job this is
another place that if they could pay you less than minimum wage they would the
income per capita is only about seventeen thousand dollars which is
thirty percent lower than the national average here’s another great thing about
this place the average school test score in Fredonia is fifty percent lower than
the national average for dona is the type of place that you only end up if
you made a wrong turn or need gas on the way to the Grand Canyon trust me stay
away from Fredonia number two are a vodka junction Arivaca
Junction Arizona is about a 30 minute drive south of Tucson with only about
900 residents who constantly need to worry about their safety and stop typing
we don’t want to hear how you’re not afraid because you have a whole bunch of
guns and a whole bunch of bullets just stop typing the town’s overall crime
rate is 87% higher than the national average which means if you’re in the
town you have a 1 in 20 chance of being involved in a crime the town is only
safer than 4% of the other cities in the United States that sucks this city
overflows with bad life decisions and number one Sanders Sanders Arizona’s
probably the worst small town you can retreat to in the state of Arizona the
town has just under 600 residents and it’s estimated that 72% of those
residents rent their home home valiums a rock bottom here which reflects how well
the town is actually doing and what’s really strange is 72 percent that people
are renting property values are dirt cheap and people still don’t have enough
money to buy a house the average home value is 27 percent lower than the
national average while rent is 52 percent lower so maybe that’s why rents
really cheap but still my house this is the type of place you move to if you’ve
decided beauty entertainment and rain are overrated and you want no more of
that nonsense Sanders Arizona is probably the worst
small town in the entire state all right so that’s my top 10 worst
towns in Arizona hope you guys enjoyed it hope you got some information if you
guys think I missed one I’d love to hear about it put it down there in the
comments I always like to read those things and possibly make other lists
later on the viewer version I hope you guys have a great day be nice to each
other
