The prettiest location in all of Arizona. Really no where else compares. I live in Scottsdale and whenever I come out to Catalina Foothills I do not want to leave. The views and weather are perfect. Great restaurant choices, culture, and great schools as well!

Beautiful scenery, good schools, extra-curricular programs, affordable after-school care; safe low crime environment. Lots of hiking trails and outdoor activities. Not enough diversity in food especially delivery. Supermarkets are fair and dine-in restaurants are good and affordable.
The Foothills has wonderful views, shopping, hiking and restaurants. The people are friendly and there is not much traffic.
