Buckeye: Beautiful, Quiet, Safe & Growing Fast

Founded in 1888, Buckeye, AZ is home to over 50,000 people and is located just 35 miles west of Phoenix. Buckeye is known as “Arizona’s biggest small town”; it’s large in area but has always kept up its small-town feel with fun community events. Within the next 30 years, the city’s planned growth is expected to be 600 square miles, and already the area is seeing a rise in new developments, neighborhoods, and homes. Still surrounded by beautiful farmland, dairies, and rural communities, Buckeye is no longer a sleepy agricultural town, but a thriving city filled with possibility. Beautiful, quiet, and safe, it’s not hard to see why Buckeye has earned its place among Arizona’s top towns—including the Top 50 Best Places to Live, the Top 5 Safest Suburbs, and many more.
