Fortunately, there’s plenty of room to accommodate everyone! Arizona winters are among the most mild in the country, with average lows rarely dropping below 40 and highs in the comfortable 60s. You’ll rarely have to turn on the furnace, and may even find yourself flinging open your windows to enjoy the fragrant desert air.

Health. If you’ve come to Arizona from a humid state, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how a “dry heat” feels – you be breathing easier with less stress on your lungs than you would have in damp, cold conditions. Your joints will also thank you for choosing a low-humidity environment to ward off the symptoms of arthritis.

Activity. The Sonora Desert don’t shut down after Thanksgiving Day. In fact, winter could be the best time to indulge your passion for golf, hiking or tennis, as the mild temperatures won’t overheat you. But it’s not all cactus and tumbleweeds – you can still enjoy traditional winter fun with snow skiing at the Snowbowl in Flagstaff and Sunrise Ski Resort in Greer.

Productivity. Custom home builders in Arizona can keep working all year long, thanks to the cooperative weather during winter. That means your luxury home build could be finished in a more timely way, and you can proceed with your move-in when it fits your schedule, not Mother Nature’s.

Attractions. Invite your out-of-town friends and relatives to Arizona during the winter – there’s no end of attractions, from pumpkin patches and hay mazes to outdoor concerts, shopping, theater, holiday events and much more.
