Best Places to Live in Phoenix

The beautiful Valley of the Sun in Maricopa County, Arizona, has become one of the most desirable relocation hot spots in America. Every year, thousands of new residents make the move to this warm and sunny area to find some of the best places to live in Phoenix’s popular metropolitan area. It’s one of the largest metro areas in the country, ranking 6th after New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and Philadelphia. The lifestyle of Phoenix residents is highly appealing to people of all ages; families with children, singles and retirees, making it one of the most sought after and fastest growing relocation destinations in the nation.

The greater metro area is usually referred to simply as, ‘Phoenix’, although it is comprised of more than 25 cities and suburban towns. The city of Phoenix, the state’s capital, however, is the nerve center and heart of the area. Of the ten largest cities in the state of Arizona, all but one are located in this area. The best places to live in Phoenix are in the neighborhoods of these municipalities. Living in Phoenix and the Sonoran Desert communities of this area draw so many people because the neighborhoods are attractive, affordable and very safe to live in. The economy is robust, being driven by education, tourism, healthcare, aerospace and technology, and Phoenix living means there are good jobs available and they’re not too far to travel to.

What puts a city on your list of best places to live in Phoenix depends on what you’re looking for. Families with children, for example, usually select Carefree, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Chandler or Paradise Valley for being among the top 10 best school systems in the state. Parents with younger children love these areas for the abundance of playgrounds, park land and zero-depth water play areas, splash parks, spray pads, and pop-jet fountains to keep their little ones cool. Retirees as well as singles would pick Scottsdale as one of the best places to live in Phoenix for its beautiful mountain views, its more than 200 pristine golf courses, and its luxury and trendsetting shopping areas, restaurants and art galleries. Administrators, professors, faculty and students affiliated with the distinguished Arizona State University may choose to live in one of the city’s southeast suburbs, such as Tempe, Mesa or Chandler. Frequent travelers and those employed by the airlines would probably consider south Scottsdale or Tempe as their best bet for proximity to Sky Harbor International Airport.
