In 2009 Business Week named Fountain Hills the "Best Affordable Suburb" in Arizona. They weighted affordability most heavily, but also considered short commutes, clean air, weather, green space, schools & the local economy. Phoenix Magazine choose Fountain Hills the best place to live in the Greater Phoenix area. Neighborhoodscout.com ranked Fountain Hills among the Top 15 towns (in the nation) to retire near a metro area. Fountain Hills could be described as an upscale community with hometown character. The richness of life here is evident the moment you crest the mountain pass, leaving the hustle and bustle of Scottsdale and the valley. Visitors find themselves letting out a big sigh of relief as they watch the chaos of the big city fade away into the distance of their rear view mirrors.
The Avenue of the Fountains is considered to be "downtown". The beautifully shaded corridor resembles a quaint main street. Each year the Fountain HIlls Chamber of Commerce holds special events along the Avenue. In Spring it's the Fountain Hills Greater Fair. In Fall it's the Fountain Hills Fall Festival of Arts and Crafts. In Winter the avenue becomes a Holiday Wonderland with hundreds of thousands of decorative lights & lumilnarias.
