Charming, vibrant Arcadia is an up-and-coming shopping and dining district in the Phoenix metro area. It is bounded 44th Street to 68th Street and Camelback Road to the canal. The area offers access to both the Camelback Mountain summit and the Arizona Canal Trail, popular with walkers, runners and cyclists. Arcadia is frequently listed as the top place to live in all of Phoenix Metro due to its ideal location for both work and fun, vibrant food / culture, walk-ability, and plush landscape. Arcadia contains well kept homes characteristic of ranch style properties on large lots with mature vegeatation; these homes command relatively high property values (as the neighborhood is adjacent to the upscale suburbs of Paradise Valley, the Biltmore area, Scottsdale and north Phoenix). It’s known for independent businesses like the upscale boutiques at Camelback Village Center, antiques shops and cocktail bars on nearby Gaslight Square, as well as trendy brewpubs, grills, lounges and fine dining.
