Buckeye Reviews

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.
We live on the outskirts of the main city of Buckeye, AZ on the border of Goodyear, AZ. We like the fact that it is away from the city and quiet. You can also see all of the stars at night which my family enjoys. Shopping and entertainment are only 20 minutes away. Great city!
I've lived in Buckeye for the past fifteen years and I couldn't be happier. Seeing this small town grow into a small city in just of a matter on ten years is insane to me. This city has so much history at every corner. There are people in this community who have had family living in Buckeye for over 100 years. There are even teachers at Buckeye Union High School who attend that school when they were in their teens. Overall, Buckeye is a safe place to raise a family due to low crime rates, and gives people a small-town vibe without being too far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
