At an elevation of 2568 feet, you’ll find Carefree, a town that is a little cooler, with air that is a little cleaner and a lifestyle that is a little more of relaxed than its neighbor to the south, North Scottsdale.  In the heart of downtown Carefree you’ll find the walkability factor to be quite high.  Browse the many boutiques, stroll through the Desert Gardens, the Sundial, Art Galleries and art, wine, and holiday festivals.  Just beyond the friendly hubbub, lie homes nestled in the desert hills and others tucked in and around Black Mountain.  Types of homes range from lock and leave, to condos, to ranches and custom built homes on many acres.
Also situated “around” Black Mountain is Cave Creek, just to the west of Carefree.  A little more “cowboy” in nature, Cave Creek also boasts shopping and dining, but with a slightly more rustic flare.  Don’t forget to check the events calendar in both these towns, as there is always something exciting to look forward to.  Ranch homes are the norm and you will often see a neighbor riding a horse to dinner or along the many hiking and horse trails nearby.  Check out these towns if you are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city of Phoenix.
