My husband & I are relocating to AZ from Indiana. Can't wait! We have looked all over the valley-really like Maricopa, but it seemed a little far out. Can someone give us the lowdown on Casa Grande? We have found a house we really like, but neighborhood is very important, so we'd like to find out a little before we make an offer. We made an offer on a house in Maricopa & had to pull the bid. Any info-good & bad-is really helpful! Thanks

Maricopa -- seemed a little far out from what? The general Phoenix area? Casa Grande is even further out than Maricopa. :-)

However, CG has a much better infrastructure than Maricopa, including much more shopping and food choices, so you will probably be able to find what you need in town. It is also bordered by the 10 FWY, instead of just a state HWY.

There are a lot of topics here on CG, which will probably provide you with more information that you ever wanted!

We have lived in Casa Grande for 20 years and are currently wanting to sell our home and start a new adventure. Casa Grande has been very good to us. We raised 2 kids here and never had a problem. They were well educated in Casa Grande schools. If you are looking for a busy, action filled life, then CG is not for you. If you prefer a laid back lifestyle, friendly people, and starry night skies..then this may be the place for you. We live in the desert and instead of city lights we have stars, instead of sirens, we have coyotes howling. We recently had a new mall built....Dillards, Target, Kohls, PetSmart, Harkins Theater etc. New restaurants are now being built, In-N-Out Burger, Applebee's (so I hear). Olive Garden just recently opened. If I can be of any help, or answer any specific questions...feel free to contact me.

You'll be warm and lots of sunshine (along with dust)
Just be prepared- It's pretty much like being south of the border.

I've only been here for 9 months but I like it I live on the newer northern part off town and you do see alot of unfinished developments since the housing crash. but I can of like having open desert around my home. For the most part people are friendly, you have everthing you'd need in the town, and Chandler and Phoenix 30 to 45 minutes away if there is something you want. I'm not sure were the last poster is from but I've been south of the border and never really felt like I was there here. In fact a lot of what some may assume are from south of the border do to skin color are actually native americans from area reservations. Again it's Arizona it can be hot and dusty during the day but nights cool down alot more than in the city.

Get over it, Squangie. The whole southwestern United States is basically "south of the border"!
