Does anyone know anything about the city San Tan just outside Phoenix? I use to live in Gilbert long ago and do not remember anything about it. It must have not been built up then? Is it a good family town? Should we be concerned being so close to Florence?

Thanks, I saw these already. I would rather know what the locals think of it. These are just stats.

Do a search for "queen creek" and then look for the Pinal County sections (johnson ranch, Copper Vista etc). The name of that area has just been changed to seperate it from the Maricopa County QC. There are lots of posts here on that area. Some love it due to the inexpensive housing and newer developments, and some dislike it alot because of the long drive into Phoenix. Currently it is probably one of the most foreclosure saturated areas out there since it was so overbuilt, but this is temporary (who knows HOW temporary).

My uncle and his wife live in San Tan Valley (formely of Queen Creek). They love it there. It's a great area. I've visited them a few times and will be staying with them for a few days again in a matter of days. The neighborhood they live in is great and family oriented. The only thing my uncle does not like is his 2 hour round trip commute to work in Tempe.

There's civilization on Ironwood not far from 60 with a Frys and your usual suspect fast food joints. Closer into San Tan Valley at Bella Vista and Hunt Highway there's another Fry's and more shops and restaurants.

The homes are cheap. You can rent a nice house for the cost of a good apartment closer to Phoenix.

Which one are you talking about? Santan or San Tan Valley? They are two different places.
My guess is you are talking about San Tan Valley....

San Tan Valley is (basically) Queen Creek but in Pinal County instead of Maricopa. As far as I know it is still unincorporated. Newer homes, still a bit rural, not much in the way of shopping/dinning in "town" (although Queen Creek is right up the road). As far as I know it is a safe area, although I've never lived there.

Santan is a very rural community along AZ 587 a little north of the I-10 where it meets the highway.
