About Carefree

Set in the unspoiled beauty of the high Sonoran desert, relaxed sophistication is this community’s watermark. Posh shopping areas and an eclectic blend of shops, cafes and restaurants are punctuated by the occasional appearance of a jackrabbit, quail or deer, adding to the town’s charm. Founded in the 1950s, Carefree is one of the earliest planned communities in Arizona. Located 36 miles north of downtown Phoenix, Carefree is primarily a residential area with heavy emphasis on resort-style living and low density development. Tourism is the cornerstone of the town’s economic base, supported by many retail businesses and restaurants.

Activities and Attractions

A striking attraction in the middle of town is the huge Sundial, one of the world's largest working timepieces with a diameter of 90 feet. The quaint downtown is filled with unique shops where you can spend hours strolling through studios, trading posts, shops, clothing boutiques, and crystal shops then enjoy lunch at one of the many restaurants.
