Located in Maricopa County, Carefree is an upscale residential area nestled in the foothills of the Sonoran desert among lush desert forests and ancient boulders. Some of the town’s street names speak a lot about the way of living that is to be experienced here- Tranquil Trail, Easy Street, and Ho-and-Hum Roads.
Fostering a safe and child friendly community, the quaint town of Carefree, with a population of 4,000 residents, is perfect for raising a family. A famous attraction is the Carefree Sundial designed by architect Joe Wong and erected in the Sundial Circle Plaza in 1959. It is the third largest sundial in the Western Hemisphere. Other nice attractions include the Carefree Desert Gardens and the Sanderson Lincoln Pavilion where many events, concerts, and art shows are held.
Its easy desert glamour is filled with restaurants offering various cuisines, wine bars, cafes, and tearooms. Reflecting the sophistication of its residents, shopping is great too with concept stores and boutiques of clothes, bags, home decors, arts and crafts, sportswear, jewelry and art. For those with a keen eye on beautiful paintings, head to M&E Stoyanov Fine Art Studio, John Yaeger Gallery and Gallery Art Max. There are plenty of art galleries everywhere.
With its love for fun and culture, Carefree hosts several events that one could participate in- depending on what catches one’s fancy, of course. The Kentucky Derby Party held at the English Rose Tea Room is the most ideal time to take out those hats and fascinators while enjoying mint tea juleps. This event is in commemoration of the annual Run of the Roses that is said to be the most famous horse race in the world. Other events include the annual Fine Art of the Southwest Festival, Thunderbird Art & Wine Festival, Carefree Christmas Festival, Indian Art Market & Cultural Festival, and Festival of Fine Chocolate and Arts.
