Queen Creek is one of the best-kept secrets in Arizona. Exceptional climate (with 330 days of sunshine annually), natural recreational riches and a relaxed, rural lifestyle combine to fulfill the dreams and visions of those who relocate to one of America's best small towns.
Queen Creek's approximately 42,000 residents enjoy the benefits of small-town living close to a metropolitan area: low crime rates, easy commuting to and from metro Phoenix, excellent air quality and a variety of recreational activities, all elements of a low-stress lifestyle.
Queen Creek is a family place, where the residents take pride in independence. It's a "first name" community, where a person behind the counter isn't an uncaring stranger, but someone who will know you by name.
Back to Nature
If you enjoy the great outdoors, Queen Creek is the place for you. You can ride a horse or hike into the mountains and across trails into the countryside. The Horseshoe Park & Equestrian Centre provides opportunities for events of both the English and Western persuasion, ranging from jumping competitions to roping, team penning, barrel racing and cutting contests.
If a more relaxing time is your idea of fun, you can sit on the patio and view the San Tan and Goldmine Mountains to the south, and the Superstition Mountains to the northeast.
Founders Park, Desert Mountain Park, the Community Center and local schools offer ball fields, tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts. Four 18-hole golf courses are also available within the Queen Creek area.
Shop the QC
Queen Creek offers a variety of shopping options including retail and dining options at Queen Creek Marketplace, the Cornerstone at Queen Creek, Power Marketplace and Queen Creek Village. One of Arizona's newest shopping malls, San Tan Village, is just 15 minutes to the north.
High tech Industry
Access to both rail and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, as well as large tracts of affordable land, have brought the Queen Creek area to the attention of industry. Both TRW and Arch Chemicals are located nearby.
