There isn't much to not like about Buckeye if you understand that it is a SUB-urban/rural community. It's beautiful, quiet, and safe. There are neat little places to explore and the city seems ready to explode into new development (increased land value people!). The few drawbacks that I really take issue with this beautiful, quiet city is that the tax rate is ridiculous and the water prices are nuts. It's not enough to drive me away though! There is also the fact that due to it being a small town, at present there are not enough job opportunities in town for younger people (like my children).
Buckeye is a laid back, yet interesting area to reside or even just visit. The coolest place to visit, in my opinion is Skyline Park just a few miles away from the Buckeye Walmart. Gorgeous views of the whole city! One of least likeable aspects of Buckeye is perhaps the amount of break ins. That includes vehicles, homes, purses, etc. However, Buckeye is still a wonderful place to live.
Buckeye, Arizona is a quaint living environment with diversity. While it is encompassed with country living full of farmland, dairies and yes even rodeo shows, it is also a thriving place for entrepreneurship and employment. Our demographics are from seniors to families raising children to college students. Other benefits I cherish about living in Buckeye, it is a thirty-minutes from Phoenix Valley. And Phoenix offer a variety of sport activities from college to the pros which my family and I enjoy. In addition, four hours from Los Angeles, California and six hours from San Diego for the enjoyment of a beach get-away. And three to four hours from Flagstaff, Sedona, Grand Canyon marvelous for skiing, bob-sledding or simply a cozy get-away or some quite time. However, the one thing I would like to see is diversity in our government leadership, which presently it lacks.
