Question Living quality in AZ

Hi everyone,

As some of you might have seen my previous post about moving to AZ well the time is near and I should be moving out there in 2 weeks. I'll be attending Grand Canyon University and I'd appreciate it if any BMW enthusiasts can help me out with the area geographically.

I'm looking for an area where the conditions to live are good, nothing too fancy or expensive since I'm a student but nothing to shady either (vandalism, robberies etc.) as I have my motorcycle and I don't want it to get stolen. Please let me know what cities would be a good area to live in.
Thanks.

-Mods please move/delete if its posted in the wrong section-

Gilbert is nice but might be a little out of the way for GCU students. I think Paradise Valley's pretty expensive but pretty nice from what I hear. I'm a fan of south Scottsdale area just north of Tempe Town Lake and ASU as well as just west in Arcadia (south Camelback area) but that also can get pretty expensive. Bunch of nice neighborhoods in Phoenix as well if you look. As someone that moved from PA a few years ago I was quite surprised at just how green some of these neighborhoods are. It really just comes down to your budget and what things are important to you. The south Scottsdale area would be great for nightlife because it's right inbetween Mill and old town.

with the search. Marv I know you posted to show off that new sig

All my life in Phoenix, I grew up right next to GCU. Fact is GCU is located in low income area of Phoenix. More north from GCU you go the better it gets. In my opinion anything north of Peoria road is OK. That's like 5 miles north of GCU. Traffic is not bad driving up and down 35th ave.
Forget Paradise valley, Arcadia, Scottsdale. That is 15 miles away from GCU straight line,
