The perfect place to live would have beautiful weather, friendly families, abundant business opportunities, affordable and high quality homes, safe neighborhoods, good schools, lots of shopping and restaurants, and plenty of fun things to do. This is Gilbert!
Gilbert is home to some of the friendliest people on earth. It's almost hard not be in a good mood with 310 days of sunshine every year cheering you on. You will enjoy the rare combination of modern amenities (terrific shopping, theaters, restaurants, newer neighborhoods, roads, and parks) and the classic rural feel Gilbert has kept from its early days as a farming community with fields of alfalfa, corn, and cotton.
There's plenty to do with the friends you're sure to make here, too! Outdoor enthusiasts have an incredible array of choices with 6 lakes within an hour, three ski resorts within 4 hours, and more hiking and mountain biking trails than you could tackle in ten years. You never lack for sporting events with pro sports teams in the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB, Phoenix International Raceway for NASCAR, over 180 golf courses, plus the excitement of competitive college sports at ASU. And at the end of the day, you come home to a place that's still quiet and carefree.
So, is there a perfect place to live? For the lifestyle you long for, come to Gilbert!
