I have lived in Yuma Arizona for a very long time. I find our town is acexceptionally Friendly ! . We have a large amount of snowbirds that choose to call Yuma Arizona their home some for a couple of months and some end up as residents here because they love the weather. We love our snowboards. As for education we have our own college Arizona Western college. And we have great schools. Yuma Arizona caters to the elderly population it is very large here in Yuma so that's a good thing. Our little town is growing but it is very family oriented no matter what the age. If someone's house burns down Yuma residence pool together and build the family a new home. That's just one example. We are a tight-knit family town we take care of each other.
