Economic Development

Carefree, Arizona’s premier Sonoran resort lifestyle community, provides a respite from the humdrum urban grind.  From it eclectic Town Center, anchored by the fabulous Carefree Desert Gardens, to award winning resorts, Carefree offers visitors and residents a truly unique Arizona experience. The Town takes pride in its small business community, offering a wide array of boutiques, restaurants, specialty shops, wellness services and art galleries. 

With several local amenities such as Bartlett Lake, Black Mountain and the Tonto National Forest, Carefree is continuing to grow its resort destination brand. Civana Wellness Resort, an award winning facility, and the soon to be completed Hampton Inn, along with the Spirit in the Desert are an excellent complement, offering visitors multiple options for their Carefree experience.

Carefree’s Economic Development Division is committed to the Town’s economic sustainability, and has been working on several initiatives outlined in the 24-month.  This includes adding new sites for resort development, and a commitment to the continued evolution of the Carefree Town Center.  If you are interested in some of the new initiatives, opening a business in Carefree, or looking for investment/development opportunities, please check out the information on this site, or feel free to email or call me.

It may sound cliché, but Carefree is a great place to live, work and play, and if you are looking for a list of events and activities, or our online business directory, please check out Visit Carefree
