Queen Creek has been developing very rapidly; each new establishment offering up entertainment and positive change for the community. One of my favorite parts that the town of Queen Creek does, is hold Food Truck Friday every Friday night. They offer many varieties and have benches so that you can enjoy food with your family or friends. Even though Queen Creek continues to grow, it still maintains that "homey" feel. They always hold events for the community and have plenty of clean and safe parks that involve: skateparks, big fields, playgrounds, basketball courts, and tons more. I myself live a town over, San Tan Valley, but try to stay in Queen Creek as much as I can, due to the many opportunities the town offers so I can have fun with my friends. The only downfall is the varied diversity, religiously and racially. If anyone has a chance to come down to Queen Creek, I highly recommend it!

I moved to Queen Creek 5 years ago from Higley, AZ. The one thing that stood out to me was all of the agriculture fields and openness. I like driving and seeing all the cows grazing along with orange trees, corn, and cotton growing. It had and still has a small town feel, I recognize people from all over. The people here are welcoming and friendly. Now that it has become more popular, there is an abundance of shops and restaurants that cater to everyone's taste. I love the sunsets here, they are vibrant with brilliant shades of pinks, purples, reds, and oranges painted across the sky. I like the country feel and enjoy seeing some people dressed in their boots, buckles, denim, and hats. I love Queen Creek!
What I have liked about Queen Creek is that it is not in the middle of the craziness of the East Valley but it's also not far from it all either! Queen Creek is more of a family area than anything. There are not too many retirement homes or college students and you don't really see homeless people either. I loved living in this part of Arizona because Queen Creek has been constantly growing. Just over the last five years I have watched a movie theater get built along with a Sprouts and many other great franchises! What I'd like to see change from Queen Creek is more local small businesses/ restaurants and maybe even some more attractions. It can become a little bit of a drive to get to some places. Although that's really not too bad either, the Chandler Fashion Center is the second largest mall in the metropolitan area and is about 25 minutes from Queen Creek. The casinos nearby are also only about a 30 minute drive. As I continue to live here I watch it grow more and more.
