Tucked in between South Mountain and the I-10 freeway.
Tucked in between South Mountain and the I-10 freeway, this upscale suburb south of Phoenix (technically part of Phoenix) is known for the athletes who love to recreate on South Mountain Desert Park. It’s home to an 16,000-acre mountain paradise amid a 5-million person metro area.
Ahwatukee exploded into the most upscale suburb the Valley has ever known, with over 12 square miles of cul-de-sacs and golf courses, with an average household income of $130,000, the most educated people in the Valley, and one of the most expensive places to live in the US.
This community began to turn its focus to the arts since then. In 2000, the Ahwatukee Foothills Village merchants/residents association (AVFVRA) formed an Arts and Cultural Committee to provide visual arts, music and writing opportunities. If you love the outdoors and the arts, then check this community out today.
