Living in Central City, Phoenix

The benefits to living in Central City are exactly what you’d expect from the urban core of a place like Phoenix: world-class shopping opportunities, nationally-recognized attractions and points of interest and—catering to students at Arizona State University—a phenomenal nightlife.

The only potential cons of living in Central City are that it’s a neighborhood that never sleeps, and, other than the beautiful green spaces of the Papago Park and the Desert Botanical Garden, it can feel a little isolated from the vast natural beauty of the surrounding Arizonan landscape.

One of Phoenix’s top family attractions—Enchanted Island Amusement Park—is just a stone’s throw away in neighboring Encanto Village. And for fun, free things to do in Phoenix, there’s always the great outdoors, with hiking trails of varying difficulties just a half-hour drive south at South Mountain Park.
