Anthem

Arizona's shopping mecca? Sure! But Anthem is about so much more than its shopping. Community parks, recreational trails, and a first-class aquatic center make this town a top spot for soaking up the sun.

If you’re in the mood for a shopping spree, head for Anthem. The open-air outlet mall just off of Interstate 17 is the perfect place to browse national retailers, high-end designers, and fine jewelers. For some local goods, try Centerpoint at Anthem and find salons, art galleries, and independent boutiques.

If shop-‘til-you-drop isn’t your idea of adventure, no worries. Nestled against the base of Daisy Mountain, this bustling community with a small-town feel is all about fun in the sun, too. The town’s focal point is the Anthem Community Park, a 63-acre recreation area. Pack up your rods and bait for a day of angling: the park has four acres of catch-and-release fishing lakes. Softball, baseball, and soccer fields, sand volleyball courts, a roller hockey rink, and a pickleball court cover all the bases for sports fanatics, and the 14,000-square-foot skate park is perfect for daredevils.

If you’re tame at heart, you’ll love a peaceful ride on the Daisy Mountain Railroad, which follows a 2,800-foot track through the scenic park. An outdoor amphitheater, ten miles of hiking and biking trails, and the Anthem Community Center’s Big Splash Water Park, with a heated lap pool and diving well, round out the town’s recreational résumé.
