The Town of Carefree was established in the mid ’50s as a master-planned community, and to this day it maintains much of its Western ambiance, effortlessly combining rustic charms with multi-million dollar desert estate homes. It’s no surprise then that the Town motto is “Home of Cowboys and Caviar, Where the Old West Meets the New.”
Carefreeʼs location at the “top of Scottsdale” and on the fringes of the Tonto National Forest provide an abundance of unspoiled natural beauty. To the west, Black Mountain is the unofficial divider between Carefree and the Town of Cave Creek, where a similarly laid back lifestyle permeates its Wild West themed shops and restaurants.
