One description of Cave Creek is "Cowboy Chic" and chock-full of fun and trails. Its winding roads afford spectacular mountain views at every turn of the road and are defining marks of the town's charisma.

That is the description, edited, from the Magazine, Cowboys and Indians. This up-scale community is 17 miles north of downtown Scottsdale but it feels worlds away from the Phoenix sprawl. It is not only scenic, but historically rustic with a population of approximately 5,000 which makes it a pleasant trip from most of Arizona. It is named for a mountain stream emanating from an open-mouthed cavern two miles north of town. Cave Creek is a quietly refuge that did not even have electricity until 1946. There are still no traffic lights and the speed limit throughout town is 25 mph. Cave Creek has recently become increasingly popular with tourists in search of authentic Western art, culture and western fun, as well as its connection to its Native American inhabitants and gold rush settlers of the late 1860s.
