Arcadia is a word used quite commonly in modern culture. We hear it in movies and TV shows, usually in reference to a neighborhood or community, but what does it actually mean? The word originally comes from a mountainous region of ancient Greece, traditionally known for the pastoral and contented innocence of its people. More commonly today, however, it is a place that offers peace and simplicity.
No place lives up to the name quite like Arcadia in Phoenix, Arizona, which has been rated by Money magazine as a “Best Place to Live.” The homes for sale in Arcadia have a character to them unlike any other homes built in later years, featuring sprawling, ranch-style homes of brick, wood-frame, and painted cinder-block sheltered by hundreds of citrus trees on sizable grassy lots.
As one of the finest communities in the Phoenix major metropolitan area, Arcadia provides access to both the conveniences of the big city and the upscale luxuries of sharing a border with Scottsdale. In fact, the eastern part of Arcadia is in Scottsdale itself. In such a fantastic location, residents of Arcadia can experience the best of both worlds without ever having to travel more than just a few minutes away!
Scottsdale offers some of the best shopping districts and cuisine in the Valley, from eclectic boutiques and outlet malls to quiet cafes and upscale restaurants featuring dishes from all around the globe. Featuring beautiful skylines, colorful desert wildflowers, and the type of cacti most people are only used to seeing in cartoons, Scottsdale’s landscape is second to none in the Valley.
Phoenix itself is a bustling metropolis of activity set in one of the lushest and most beautiful deserts in the world. With hundreds of nature trails, multiple sports arenas which play host to numerous professional teams, and home to the world-famous Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix is a great place to play and experience the wonder of the Sonoran Desert. Arcadia is the place to experience the best of everything Phoenix and Scottsdale have to offer, all while maintaining its own identity and community.
