I have friends there. In town don't expect anything green, it is desert. Also expect large and numerous bugs...not kidding. My friends live outside town in the high desert mountain area...where it can snow at their house and drive into town where its hot hot hot. It also has one of the highest % of crazy person in the US. A visit before moving there is definitely a good idea, it is nothing like philly.
