Most People Have No Idea Just How Unique This Village In Arizona Truly Is

We have quite a few villages in Arizona, but many are either abandoned or still inhabited by the same families who settled them. Laveen, located within the city limits of Phoenix, is considered an “urban village” and retains its rural roots while continuing to urbanize and prosper. This juxtaposition is a truly unique phenomenon that sets the community apart from any other place in Arizona.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
