Welcome to Cave Creek
Cave Creek, along with its sister city of Carefree, is nestled just north of Scottsdale, Arizona.
Known for its beautifully preserved open spaces and multiple-acre homesites, Cave Creek offers magnificent 360-degree Sonoran desert and mountain views for all its residents. Cowboys, yuppies, artists, hippies — Cave Creek is a 31-square-mile melting pot of approximately 5,000 individuals — or should we say individualists — all drawn to this quirky town’s combination of wondrous Sonoran desert and mountain scenery, and, well, quirkiness.
A quickly growing and diverse group of residents.
Cave Creek must be doing something right because between 2000 and 2013 its population grew 36.1 percent. In 2013, the median age for a Cave Creek resident was 55.5 years and the median household income was just above $75,000. Most residents of Cave Creek come to the town for its wide open land, acceptance of diversity and distance from city life.
What To Expect
An eclectic mix of saloons, shops and galleries at the heart of the town.
Where else but in Cave Creek can you drive down a town’s main road and pass a five-star restaurant, rough and tumble cowboy saloons, chi-chi coffee shops, trendy wine bars, a biker’s hangout, burger joints, feed stores, fine art galleries, luxurious day spas as well as shops that sell funky fashions, Mexican wares and Western gear…all within a two-mile stretch.
What Not To Expect
Feeling like an outsider. This is a welcoming and diverse community.
Cave Creek’s residents range from the cowboy of yesteryear to motorcyclists to business executives to modern millennials. Wherever you fit on the spectrum of personality and lifestyle, you’ll probably have no trouble fitting-in in cool-as-a-cucumber Cave Creek.
Relaxing, secluded and fun whether you fit in with the artists, cowboys, motorcyclists or business executives — everyone gets along in cool-as-a-cucumber Cave Creek.
Cave Creek is famous for its Western-style fun that brings local cowboys and cowgirls into town, all decked out in their traditional Western gear. You’ll find them at one of Cave Creek’s several Western restaurants, bars and saloons and you can either watch or join in the fun as they kick up their heels to the live Western music. If you’re into something that requires less exertion, perhaps you’d prefer to sit back and savor some smooth jazz or listen to karaoke vocalists and amateur comedians on open-mic nights — or grab the mic yourself.
