The town of Cave Creek was recently incorporated in 1986 and began as a small mining town built out of its rocky desert surroundings during the Arizona gold rush in the 1880s. Residents who stayed behind after the gold dried up turned to ranching, and much of this heritage can still be seen in both residents and town design. Even today, Cave Creek has become a refuge for those who want to escape big city life and enjoy the country lifestyle. Numerous horseback-riding trails can be found throughout the city and into the 2.9 million acre Tonto National Forest. Some roads in the city have even been left unpaved to cater to horseback riding residents and preserve the natural beauty surrounding the area.
For those who prefer a more modern lifestyle, Downtown Cave Creek provides a number of unique shops and restaurants, and several resort-quality facilities, bed and breakfasts, and golf courses have been built within easy reach of the city center. Several art festivals are held annually, including the colorful Fiesta Days Parade.
Several of the planned communities in the area are gated and have been designed around championship golf courses, providing residents with the all the luxury and greenery that golf courses can provide. With all that is has to offer, Cave Creek is sure to become one of the most desirable places to live in Arizona.
