The Wild West Comes Alive in Cave Creek

Established as a gold mining town and stopping point for the US Cavalry in the mid 1870s, Cave Creek, AZ is not like most other towns in the bustling and urban Phoenix metro. While most of the buildings built in the 1800s have vanished, quite a few still stand to offer a vivid glimpse back into the Wild West of days long past.

Located high above Phoenix in the foothills of the Black Mountains, Skull Mesa, and Elephant Butte, Cave Creek has managed to maintain its utterly unique and charming Old West character despite the exponential growth of the surrounding Phoenix metro. Its breathtaking topography of desert trees and rolling hills make for truly unbeatable outdoor adventuring into desert mountains and wild spaces, while its bustling small-town community is filled with saloons, western shops, local galleries, championship golf, and an undeniable Wild West flare.
