My husband and I absolutely LOVE Ahwatukee! We moved here from Orange County, CA, and will not be moving back to CA anytime soon. We have everything we need within 5 minutes driving. Plus, we are just 15 minutes from downtown Phoenix. There are tons of restaurants, bars, stores and services around here. The area is clean and safe, and everyone is super nice! If you are considering moving to the Phoenix Area, we highly recommend Ahwatukee.

As a seventeen-year-old, I grew up in Ahwatukee Foothills - an incredible sanctuary in Phoenix. I learned to not take the beautiful mountains and scenery for granted. The people are friendly, the hikes are endless, and the homes are gorgeous. There are many kids of all ages, so it's easy to make and stay friends with families in this community. I feel safe almost all of the time, and nature is very important to my happiness, so I love that you can find a hiking trail in almost every neighborhood. I adore everything about living here and will be sad to leave for college in Tucson, but know that I can return whenever I need.
I grew up here and I did not always appreciate it as I do now. In my adult life, I really enjoy the quietness and the family-friendliness of the residential communities in the area. I currently live here with my parents and brothers and it is a good place for us to be. There are plenty of grocers and plenty of restaurants. My favorite parts about Ahwatukee by far are the views, especially during monsoon season. Watching the dust roll in is very romantic. Most importantly, it is very safe. The number of crimes here are very low with the biggest thing be the occasional car break-in because people leave cars unlocked.
