This North Phoenix neighborhood has a lot to offer — from excellent recreation to tasty tamales — and the housing market is red-hot.
Buy a home

Take in some culture
Thunderbird Arts Center (1106 E. Grovers Ave.), an extension of the Phoenix Center for the Arts, works in partnership with the City of Phoenix to offer classes in ceramics, mosaics, painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, youth art and more. In-person classes expect to remain closed through Spring 2021, but online classes are available.
Grab a bite to eat
The Tamale Store (15842 N. Cave Creek Rd.) is a local, family-owned business that serves up an amazing variety of tamales — from the go-to chicken green chile to the Southwest veggie — all handmade from scratch daily.
