Ever wish you could live in a city just as laid back and whimsical as you are? Well, you’re in luck, because such a place exists and is very aptly named. Carefree, AZ is a place where you’ll find cute, colorful street names like Tranquil Trail and Ho Hum Way and at the center of town, you’ll find the Carefree Sundial, the third largest sundial in the western hemisphere.
Why a sundial, you ask? The same reason you’ll find a waterfall and a giant slide shaped like a Gila monster nearby; why not! Carefree is a town famous for its whimsical nature and is a great place to call home.
There’s more to see in Carefree than silly street names, odd landmarks, and animal-shaped rides, of course. Carefree’s own botanical garden is filled with cacti of all kinds as well as unique, colorful southwestern flora. If the garden just isn’t enough for you, one of Carefree’s greatest attractions is the surrounding desert landscape. The Sonoran Desert is by far one of the most lush and beautiful deserts in the world and Carefree hosts many trails where you can go hiking at Skull Mesa, climb the McDowell Mountains and Pinnacle Peak, or go off-roading with motorcycles or horses. You can even rent or boat, or bring your own, at Bartlett Lake Marina.
Perhaps you’d like to enjoy the scenery but you’re not too keen on going out into the wilds. Well, that’s not a problem, as Carefree is home to several popular golf courses, including the nationally renowned Charles Schwab Champions Golf Tour. Enjoy a few rounds set against the backdrop of the gorgeous sunset of the desert landscape. When the game is over, there’s still plenty to do in Carefree. All year round, there are festivals and fairs of all sorts, celebrating music, art, culture, food, and everything in between. So what are you waiting for? Come find a home in Carefree today.
