Some say the boundaries for Arcadia are south Camelback Mountain to Thomas road, and 44th street east to 64th street, but this can depend on whom you ask.
Arcadia is not what you would call a “cookie-cutter” neighborhood, but a unique zone full of well put-together, upscale ranch style houses and a plush landscape. It is adjacent to the swank lifestyles of Paradise Valley, the Biltmore area, Scottsdale and north Phoenix. Arcadia has been frequently ranked as one of the top places to live in the Phoenix metro area, due to the unbeatable views of Camelback Mountain. Also, it is an ideal location for both work and fun activities, with nearby restaurants, some of the best hiking trails of Camelback and close to the Echo Canyon recreation space.
Arcadia has character that no other neighborhood in Arizona can quite compete with, because the majority of these homes were constructed in the mid 1950’s. However, many of these homes now have been upgraded and remodeled but still encompass the old-fashioned finishes, which Arcadia is well known for.
