Never heard of Ahwatukee? Ahwatukee is an urban community of Phoenix situated in the
Ahwatukee Foothills, just west of Chandler, and south of Phoenix. It is one of the most beautiful
communities of Metro Phoenix Area, bordered on the North by South Mountain Park, and on the
South, by the Gila River Indian Community. Some people call Ahwatukee the “largest cul-de-sac”,
known more its small-town feel, and many community events. I LOVE living here in Ahwatukee for so
The Sky Harbor International Airport is just a short 15 minute drive from Ahwatukee. You should also
know that Sky Harbor Airport now has its own tram to transport you from the parking areas to the
terminals, so flying into Phoenix and getting to Ahwatukee is so much easier now.
Picture yourself living in beautiful, sunny Ahwatukee or the Ahwatukee Foothills! Take a drive
through the foothills and you will see streets lined with trees, and water fountains & little lakes
almost everywhere. There are beautiful golf courses, wonderful hiking trails, and the weather is
perfect for golf, hiking, or biking. Every restaurant of any kind can be found here in Ahwatukee, as
well as a boundless array of shopping. You don’t even have to leave the community to enjoy these
Got kids? One of the things Ahwatukee is best known for is its award winning schools. One of the
charter schools here has been voted the best in the nation, and my granddaughter goes there. I’m
amazed at what she is learning already …she is only 8 years old!
Money Magazine voted Ahwatukee as one of the Best Places to Live. The nearby South Mountain Park
Preserve offers miles of rugged trails & desert scenery. Early in the morning, you will find people out
walking, biking or just taking their dog for a morning stroll.
Whether you stay at home or go out, you won’t be bored if you live in Ahwatukee. Choose from bars,
books, dance clubs, comedy, country, jazz, local bands, or national acts, to AMC or DVD movies, plays,
musicals and more.
Just want to do some shopping …there’s an array of great local shops & nearby malls to find something just right for you or for that someone special.
