The Wild West Comes Alive in Cave Creek

Like much of the Phoenix area, Cave Creek was originally established as a gold mining town and stopover point for the U.S. Cavalry in the mid-1870s.  Cave Creek has maintained its Wild West feel since that time, yet it has also established itself as a vibrant small-town with unbeatable outdoor adventure in the desert mountains and wild spaces and a bustling small-town community filled with old-timey saloons, western shops, local galleries, championship golf courses, and a completely unique Wild West flare!  Visit Cave Creek to see for yourself!
