Also, New River to the north. Both Florence & Maricopa are in Pinal County, but only a half hour drive to major shopping, etc. Having worked in both cities and lived in Pinal County, I would be happy to assist you.
I am a relocation specialist and work with retired/retiring people also, and would love to help you out. Phoenix metro area is very large, and I work in the East Valley, where there are some delightful, quiet, out-of-the way neighborhoods with smaller homes on them. The East Valley includes Mesa, Chandler, Tempe, Gilbert, Apache Junction, and Queen Creek.
You can't find out if this is the place for you without coming here for a look, as I'm sure you realize, and it will be even better if you meet up with an agent who can take you on a tour to show you some different neighborhoods, not just houses. If you are planning a trip, or perhaps coming in the fall when our winter visitors arrive, it would be a perfect opportunity for me to take you on such a tour.
Please email or phone me at your convenience.

We moved here from a small town and love it. The weather is wonderful (except of course during the hottest months, but even then, early morning and evenings are still nice and you can enjoy sitting on the patio).
There are some areas on the outskirts that you may want to consider rather than being more centrally located which will give you a more relaxed feeling.
One of the newer communities you may want to look into would be San Tan Valley. It has been very well thought out in the planning stages as it has had the opportunity to see the flaws of the older communities. Queen Creek or Gold Canyon would also be very nice areas for you to consider. The west side has some areas as well, but they are closer to the nuclear power plant and some people prefer not to reside there. If you would like our assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Now that being said, there are some great small town feeling suburbs of Phoenix where you might feel right at home.
I always believe having a conversation with my clients to find out what all of their needs are is the best place to start.
