Situated in the northern part of the Phoenix metropolitan area, Cave Creek's motto, "Where the Wild West Lives," reflects the city's heritage as a mining and ranching town. Featuring historic Spur Cross Ranch, Cave Creek is known for its desert landscape and Old West ambience. Born on the backs of a gold rush in the 1860s, Cave Creek is now one of the backbones of North Phoenix. Closely related to the city of Carefree, Cave Creek offers an amazing getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Meanwhile, horseback riding and off-road vehicle tours provide fun for guests and residents alike, while a trip to nearby Bartlett Lake is the perfect way to cool off from the summer heat.
