Uptown Phoenix is the perfect combination of urban and suburban. If living right in the middle of downtown isn’t your thing, but you still crave the diversity and excitement of the city, then Uptown Phoenix might be exactly what you’re looking for.
Hailed as one of the most eclectic and vibrant communities in Phoenix, Uptown offers everything from ranch style homes, to historic brick homes, to brand new stucco homes in the modern Arizona style. But very few residents come to Uptown just for a house.
A community surrounded by mountain preserves, Uptown doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the views. The community is a short ride or drive away from some of the states’ most scenic hiking trails, including the Phoenix Mountains Preserve and North Mountain Park. The Penny Howe Barrier-Free Nature Trail is also nearby. In fact, National Geographic named Phoenix one of the 15 best hiking cities in the U.S.! And, because many of the neighborhoods are so well-established, you’ll also find beautifully landscaped parks and open spaces as well as popular bike and walking paths, right in your own back yard!
If luxury is your thing, you’ll love the Phoenix Country Club, with its lush golf course and state-of-the-art tennis club, just a stones’ throw away from downtown Phoenix. You can also find world-class culinary skills at many of the posh new restaurants. Several of the local favorites have been featured in national syndicates, such as USA Today and NBC News.
Casual bistros, bars, and coffee shops are also plentiful and offer a wide variety of options for a mid-day business luncheon, coffee with friends on a Sunday morning, or a fun family dinner on a relaxed Friday night. And it’s not just traditional southwest fare, either! Here, you can find Asian cuisine, French presses, vegan delights, and nearly everything in between. It’s truly a foody’s paradise!
For family life, Uptown is a favorite for private school options. Area incomes range from average to slightly above average so homes and parks tend to be well-maintained and there’s plenty of activities for the kids. The recently restored Uptown Plaza is a weekend family favorite because of its modern vibe, wide array of shops, and foody destinations. Granada Park offers a beautiful location for a family picnic – and Fido is welcome at the dog park!
