Carefree, Arizona, basks in sunshine most of the year and is located adjacent to its sister town of Cave Creek. Sitting at an elevation of 2500 feet, in Maricopa County and northeast of Phoenix and north of Scottsdale. Because of its elevation the daytime temperatures typically are 6-8 degrees cooler than Phoenix. Existing only since the late 1950s, Carefree, Arizona is nestled in the desert foothills at the feet of the continental Mountains, and is one of the earliest planned communities in Arizona. What it lacks in early old west history, it makes up for with its culture, exceptional granite boulder formations, small town charm, upscale galleries and shops, vibrant sunsets, and a star studded, night sky. Visitors and residents alike enjoy pleasurable outdoor activities at nearby Bartlett Lake. Hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, and boating- all play an active role at this lake, fed by the “sweet waters” of the Verde River. Numerous golf courses are scattered throughout the neighboring areas.
The population of Carefree is relatively small, under 4,000 including winter residents, is not apt to grow much beyond its present size because much of its surrounding large acreage has been designated as preserve area. Preserving the pristine beauty of the desert landscape is one of the key facets to this community. Planned so that the homes look almost as natural as the desert outcroppings of rock and flora, large open spaces have been preserved with the recreational spirit of Carefree, Arizona.
Tucked in the center of a shopping Mecca in downtown Carefree, known as Sundial Circle, sits the Carefree Sundial which is one of the largest sundials in the western hemisphere. This steel and copper-coated giant, standing 35 feet tall with a gnomon, the part that creates the shadow that stretches 75 feet, points to the North Star.
