Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Flagstaff,
the Munds Park / Mountainaire neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Munds Park / Mountainaire neighborhood has more
Scottish and Welsh ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 10.8% of
this neighborhood's residents have Scottish ancestry and 3.1% have Welsh ancestry.
Munds Park / Mountainaire is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Native American languages at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 97.6% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Unpopulated, and rural, the Munds Park / Mountainaire neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 99.4% of the neighborhoods in America. One of the notable things about Munds Park / Mountainaire is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Munds Park / Mountainaire neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 82.6%, which is higher than 99.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
Priests and therapists would like to think they know the secrets to a
truly successful marriage, but according to NeighborhoodScout's research,
the folks of the Munds Park / Mountainaire neighborhood may actually hold
the key. 66.9% of its residents are married, which is a higher
percentage than is found in 96.4% of the neighborhoods
In addition, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
Munds Park / Mountainaire neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider

NeighborhoodScout as among the top 7.3% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Arizona, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can

of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
