Located less than 30 minutes southwest of Phoenix, Chandler offers year-round sunshine, a solid economy, a growing real estate market, great schools, and a wide range of outdoor and cultural activities. The year-round sunshine is both a blessing and a curse. Summer temperatures frequently soar above 100 and residents curtail outdoor activities until the fall. But temperatures the rest of the year make up for the summer heat, and that’s when golfers come out in droves. Tee up! Seven championship golf courses are within Chandler city limits.
Chandler’s solid economy and leading employers like Intel, Orbital, Wells Fargo, and PayPal make this a top area for job seekers. You’ll find real estate offerings that range from mansions in luxurious gated communities to mid-size homes, townhomes, and apartments in modest neighborhoods. Big names perform at the Chandler Center for the Arts; city museums celebrate Chandler’s history, art, and culture; boutiques offer unique shopping; aware-winning restaurants serve up international fare, and Cactus League Spring Training draws baseball fans to Chandler venues.
The park system in and near Chandler is extensive and varied. Over 60 parks, ranging from small urban pockets of green space to large wild regional parks, allow you to enjoy your favorite outdoor activities throughout the year. The proximity to the Sonoran Desert offers fascinating wilder adventures like climbing, hiking, and discovering the wonders of regional wildlife. Plenty of local biking and walking trails wind through many neighborhoods.
