Cave Creek is located Northeast of downtown Phoenix about 33 miles with a total area of 28.2 square miles. The town is rich in Western history and has managed to maintain the eclectic charm found in the old West. The lifestyle tends to attract those in search of the natural desert and a laid-back atmosphere. There are plenty of places to eat a satisfying meal like the Horny Toad, Buffalo Chip Saloon or the famous Binkley’s restaurant. Enjoy horseback riding, rodeos, country and western dancing, hiking, biking and of course shopping. True beauty can be witnessed when you live in Cave Creek with some of the most eye appealing desert landscape and sweeping views of Black Mountain, Skull Mesa, and Elephant Butte. However, not all Cave Creek is cowboy chic. Play a round of golf at the world-class Boulders Resort with views of boulder outcroppings and immaculate fairways or relax and enjoy a treatment at the Golden Door Spa. Another perk of life in Cave Creek is that the temperature can be up to 10-15 degrees cooler at night than downtown Phoenix. Cave Creek is serviced by the Cave Creek Unified School District. The population is under 5,000. Zip codes are 85331 and 85327.
