Rural charm, modern convenience
Sharing a boundary with Old Town Scottsdale, Arcadia is steeped in similar historical significance. And Downtown Phoenix, the area’s urban and cultural hub, is just a short drive away. Looking for something a little more upscale and exclusive? Arcadia shares a boundary with the affluent Paradise Valley with its luxury resorts and sprawling golf courses.
Family-friendly living in Arcadia
Many of the listings in Arcadia feature 4- or 5-bedroom homes on a sprawling, grassy lot. And with its lack of commercial development (something Arcadia residents have fought hard for!), it’s an oasis for young families. Plus, with its miles of biking and walking trails along the Phoenix Canal, there’s plenty of space for family outings.
While there’s plenty to explore in Arcadia proper—like Arcadia Park or the Schemer Arts Center & Museum—location is one of Arcadia’s biggest perks. Families living in the area can easily arrange family outings to the Phoenix Zoo, Desert Botanical Garden, or Echo Canyon Park.
