Hi everyone-
Moving to AZ from the midwest for a job transfer. Looking at the North Scottsdale/Cave Creek area for my family. Are there a lot of kids' activities up there? Soccer, baseball, etc? Or is it more of a snowbird/part time resident sort of area? I looked at the Preserve, terra Vita, and Sand Flower, didn't see many kids!
Thanks!
Mark

Take a look at Tatum Ranch, Los Alisos, Desert Ridge, La Buena Vida, Tatum Highlands, Dove Valley Ranch lots of young people (more family oriented subdivisions).

The Desert Foothills YMCA has great programs of all types (not just sports), for the whole family.

There are loads of baseball, soccer, football, basketball etc. through Cactus Foothills and Desert Foothills leagues. Both Terravita and Winfield have great tennis programs. Of course there are plenty of hiking, horseback riding, bicycling opportunities. Oh, and golf too...

Also contact some of the schools for recommendations on non-school related clubs and activities.

Some links to get you started:

The farther north you go, the more just snowbird communities...in particular in North Scottsdale...but this is my opinion. That being said, if you are considering just north of the 101 as N. Scottsdale, then that's just fine (Grayhawk, Desert Ridge area).
