Why is Arcadia in Phoenix so popular?

Real Estate Agent with Realty Executives

amy gerrish headshot By: Amy Gerrish   I moved to the Phoenix metro when I was 20 years old. The first neighborhood to stand out to me was Arcadia. In fact, my first job was at the Subway on 44th St & Indian School, trust me, that plaza looked nothing like it does today. It was run down, but so very busy.  In fact, Alice Cooper used to come in and order sandwiches from me. Yeah, that is my one claim to fame.

But why is Arcadia so popular?

Unlike the rest of the flavor of the outlying metro with it's cookie cutter suburbia,  Arcadia is rich in eclectic 50-60's era modern homes, larger yards, greener, tree lined streets that just abosulutely scream this place is home. arcadia 4 As far as homes for sale in Arcadia, it is divided up by the larger mansionesque homes and then there is Arcadia Lite, for those that don't need something quite as large.


Aside from the homes that make up the neighborhood, Arcadia also has great views along with easy access to  Camelback Mountain, which is the center point of the Phoenix Metro.  There are great restaurants and shops nearby: The Capital Grille, Postino Wine Bar, Le Grande Orange & Chelsea's Kitchen. This neighborhood has been dearly loved for the 20 years that I have lived in Phoenix and probably won't ever lose it's popularity.
