Carefree | Cave Creek

Luxuriously laid-back town

Located a short drive north of Scottsdale, Arizona, the sibling towns of Carefree and Cave Creek are just what the proverbial doctor ordered when you’re looking to get away from the urban and suburban hustle and bustle. Surrounded by lush desert and soaring granite boulders, these two towns enjoy a wealth of differences, but also share a common history as well as the magical splendors of midnight-black night skies, magnificent mountain vistas, and stands of towering saguaros that clamber across the rugged landscape.

The luxuriously laid-back town of Carefree is lined with lighthearted street names, a la Easy Street and Ho and Hum. Flaunting drop-dead dazzling views of the massive rock outcroppings and gigantic boulders that dominate this part of Arizona’s high Sonoran habitat, Carefree’s ritzy winding pathways meander past stunning contemporary territorials, secluded Tuscan villas, and sprawling hacienda-style homes, many with elegant alfresco entertaining areas that take advantage of the spectacular scenery. Additionally, world-class resort communities show off with hidden-hideaway homes and lock-and-leave villas, all enchantingly nestled into the dramatic landscape.

Carefree's western neighbor, Cave Creek, enjoys a flamboyantly colorful history as a no-holds-barred, rough and tumble mining and ranching town, and still boasts a bit of her original spirited independent streak. Most homes in Cave Creek offer a country/ranch lifestyle, complete with horse privileges and desert trails, with the 2.9 million-acre Tonto National Forest just north of town providing abundant recreational opportunities.

Filled with fabulous boutiques, upscale shopping, fine dining, quaint eateries, unique galleries, and lavish resorts, Carefree and Cave Creek are definitely top of the mind when it comes to kicking back and relaxing in high Arizona style.
