East of Scottsdale and north of Mesa, nestled against a corner of the Tonto National Forest, lies the oasis of Fountain Hills. Though the town’s namesake fountain is now the fourth largest in the world, at the time of its construction it topped the list. For about fifteen minutes of each hour, between 9 in the morning and 9 at night, the fountain displays a gorgeous plume of water that ranges from around 300 feet up to 560 feet high!
Fountain Hills is known for its dedication to the arts, and celebrates the connection regularly. Throughout the year, locals and visitors attend the Fountain Hills Great Fair, a carnival and art exhibition, along with other arts fairs including one promoted by the Thunderbird Artists—a group that celebrates each March with the popular Fountain Hills Fine Art and Wine Affaire. Fountain Hills also celebrates the beauty of nature by being an International Dark Sky Community, as designated by the International Dark Sky Association—one of the closest you can find to any major metropolitan area. Talk about good fortune!
Although the community is relatively small, Fountain Hills boasts an independent school district and three public schools to meet your family’s educational needs, and its proximity to Phoenix means there is plenty of opportunity for continued education through a four-year University or the community college system.
With resort-style living just outside your front door and incredible views available all over town, Fountain Hills is the perfect place to find your next home. You’ll love the community events, entertainment, and incomparable Arizona sunsets that can be yours with a property in this quiet little corner of the Valley of the Sun.
