Carefree is a place where you can find the best of both worlds – the charm of a small town and the amenities of a master-planned community. With approximately 3,500 people residing in just 1,900 homes, the town’s 8 square miles boasts plenty of wide-open Sonoran Desert views.
Residents love Carefree because it’s not as densely populated as other parts of Greater Phoenix and so they’ll tell you that the air is cleaner, the traffic is lighter and the way-of-life is easier. Sure, the pace is slower in Carefree, but it’s far from boring. There is plenty to do in this pocket of the Valley of the Sun.
First, it’s nestled along Black Mountain, which means plenty of hiking, biking and outdoorsy activities. There is a 3.5-acre desert garden in downtown featuring rare specimen plants and cacti, Sunday spring concerts at Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion and a farmer’s market every Friday morning under the town’s iconic sundial. Plus, 20+ golf courses in the area make for endless tee-time opportunities.
The town of Carefree also hosts several special events throughout the year, including the Thunderbird Artists Fine Art Fair, Carefree Christmas Festival and the Enchanted Pumpkin Garden Exhibits.
One more benefit that Carefree locals enjoy over other Maricopa County residents is this: The Town of Carefree does not assess a town-specific real estate tax. This means that real estate taxes here are approximately half of what would be charged for an identical home in other Phoenix suburbs. Luxury just costs less in Carefree.
