Carefree is a town located just north of Scottsdale and east of Cave Creek. With a population of only 3300, Carefree is an intimate town. The town center has several small shopping and dining areas to service the population and the neighboring residential areas of North Scottsdale and Cave Creek. Most of the homes in Carefree are custom, and it isn't unusual to find homes over 5000 square feet. Carefree is nestled within the hills of the Sonoran Desert and some homes are built on the hillside with great views of the area.

Carefree is a desert community north of Scottsdale. Bordered on the north by the Tonto National Forest, Carefree blends in almost seamlessly with the adjacent wilderness area. As you drive into Carefree from the South, you'll enjoy the enormous boulder outcroppings that make this area unique. Carefree homes usually have custom architecture with desert landscaping, and many Carefree homes are nestled in the most beautiful rugged desert terrain, with sweeping mountain vistas.

"Downtown" Carefree is a charming mixture of commercial buildings with the southwest designs and interesting street names like "Ho Hum" and "Easy" street. Art galleries and collectables shops spot the landscape, along with unique cafe's like the English Rose Tea Room, and the legendary Boulders resort, owned by Wyndam. Major shopping malls are a thing left to other towns nearby like Scottsdale and Phoenix.
