    membership and support of local businesses.

    The KACC is located in scenic Kingman, AZ. Although many are attracted to Kingman by our warm climate and incredible scenic beauty, it is our high quality of life based on a low cost of living that ultimately persuades individuals to join our community. The overall cost of living is 15 points lower than national average with housing a huge 40 points lower than the national average (http://www.bestplaces.net/cost_of_living/zip-code/arizona/kingman/86401). Kingman does not have a property or a city income tax. All of this helps our salaries to go farther. While income is one aspect of quality of life others include access to historic Route 66, the majestic Grand Canyon, the Hoover Dam, the mighty Colorado River, Lake Mead, the famous London Bridge, and Las Vegas all right outside our front door.
