Overview of Carefree

Tucked away in the scenic beauty of the Sonoran Desert, the city of Carefree is one of Arizona's most striking communities. With the lush landscapes of the desert that incorporate well with the warm and welcoming residential community, many families are drawn to Carefree apartments for rent because of the town's unique personality. Apparently the word is out on this beautiful town, since Carefree has seen a near 15 percent increase in population from 2000 to 2010, according to City-Data. Another big plus to this community is the temperate climate that so many Arizonians love because of the outdoor activities that they can enjoy year round, such as golf and swimming.

Living in Carefree, AZ

Carefree got its start after developers K.T. Palmer and Tom Darlington dreamed up a master-planned community in the 1950s. The term "carefree" was used to describe the community, and the name stuck. Palmer and Darlington chose a location that would keep Arizona residents coming into the city for many years. The scenic splendor of the desert foothills of Black Mountain and gorgeous granite formations that are abundant here still keep Carefree an ideal city to live, work and play in. Today, Carefree is home to more than 3,400 residents, according to 2010 information from City-Data. Another big plus to living in Carefree is how affordable the town is. The cost of living index in this charming community is more than 8 points below the national average, making Carefree an ideal location for Arizona families looking to live on a budget.

Carefree Attractions and Special Events

There are several festivals in Carefree for residents no matter the time of year. Enjoy the delectable treats and visual beauty of the Culinary Festival of Chocolates, Confections and Fine Art in the spring, the delicious fine-dining offering during Taste of the Foothills and the town's popular Carefree Christmas Festival held every holiday season featuring an electric light parade and holiday fireworks extravaganza.
