The area is extremely nice, there are plenty of shopping centers, and rarely any traffic! There is not a lot of diversity in the area however, but outside of that it is great!
There is so much to do in Ahwatukee and everyone here is so kind and welcoming. It is extremely family friendly as there are many local events within neighborhoods or even as a community in general!
Everyone here is at best cold and indifferent, at worst extremely hostile and rude. You have to drive into Phoenix to find something to do, and good luck not getting driven off the road or killed in a road rage incident on the way. If that doesn't get you, the bad roads will. The schools and crime are both awful. It seems everyone here is also a political extremist, on both sides. You can't ask for help finding a lost dog without something screaming at you about whoever the current president is.
Ahwatukee Foothills is adjacent to the beautiful hiking trails of South mountain. The area is convenient to shopping, the airport, downtown Phoenix, and much more. It is a very safe area and I love it much more than Scottsdale where I lived for 13 years previously.
Amazing area. Not much to do, but there are shops and restaurants on just about every corner. Also a mix of busy during the day, quiet at night. Love it here!!
The Ahwatukee Foothills neighboorhood is such an amazing and great place to live. Everyone is super friendly and the schools are nice!
I lived in Ahwatukee from the day I was born to my 18th birthday and I would never want anyone else to have this experience. It's an EXTREMELY sheltered white suburb full of bored and racist rich people with zero knowledge of real life. Lookswise it's not the worst in Phoenix but the bar is really low on that one anyways. If you live here you will need to have a car as there is one bus that runs for a few hours a day to a couple stops in town and it always, always at least 20 minutes late. There's few local stores and not many good restaurants. Nothing is open past 10pm except the IHOP on Ray. If you want to do something fun your best bet is to drive 30 minutes to Phoenix or Scottsdale. The people here are boring and rude and will look down on you if you're not as rich as them. The schools are okay for Arizona (but again, Arizona public schools are awful) but the people in them are a different story. High school kids here are not people you'd want your children to be around.
Ahwatukee Foothills in Phoenix, AZ is filled with safe suburban neighborhoods and institutions that are family-friendly. The overall atmosphere of Ahwatukee is calm and family-oriented. There are many parks and recreation areas that offer a multitude of spaces for various activities to take place. Ahwatukee also holds many various businesses and restaurants.
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.
Safe community with good amount of stores and restaurants. Not too far from Phoenix Airport or to Scottsdale Nightlife.
I have been a resident in Ahwatukee for the past 18 years. I have seen this small area of Phoenix grow from dirt and freeways to the family friendly area that it is today. This area is definitely resided by primarily high-income individuals but it overall is welcome to all. In the future, I hope to see more activities and restaurants open past 10 PM.
My experience here has been pretty great. I have lived here my whole life in this community. Everyone is nice and friendly and I feel like I am able to get to know a lot of this community if I don’t know them already. One thing I might change if I could is to make the community more diverse. I believe more diversity could be added to this town. I have loved living in this town and has been a great experience for me
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.
Ahwatukee foothills is a beautiful place to live. The neighborhoods are great, and the hiking all around is perfect!
I think compared to a lot of the other surrounding areas Ahwatukee is definitely the nicest. Very low crime rate, nice people, lots of stores and restaurants. More recently I think the kids have been getting more obnoxious but I feel like that's happened everywhere, not just Ahwatukee.
Nice suburb, generally friendly individuals. Grocery stores, different types of restaurants, schools, churches and banks all around. Lots of good places to walk/run and hike. Nice place to raise a family.
I hear things like “All White Tukee” and there is no diversity... the community feels safe, the schools are great, the streets are clean, the parks are clean and the neighborhoods are well maintained. I am glad to live here and welcome anyone that wants to help continue our tradition of community excellence.
