I have lived in Wickenburg for 10+ years now. My daughter is now growing up in the small country life and she loves it. There is a diversity of shops and a lot of community events offered. The family feel is very welcoming to everyone and everybody feels included. The crime rate is very low, I like to feel safe where I live. There is absolutely no traffic and that is amazing.

Small western town and everything that goes along with it. Comes alive in the winter with the rodeo scene. Families who have been here for a long time thrive, everyone else not so much.
Wickenburg is a very cultural, western town with a very close-knit community. I would like to see more diverse businesses being added and more job opportunities.
