Sandwiched between the Arizona Canal and Camelback Mountain, Arcadia is not just gorgeous and livable but also a great place to pick a lemon. Once home to hundreds of acres of sweet-smelling citrus groves, Arcadia is today the residential jewel of east Phoenix, and many homes are still hugged by lush fruit trees. Immaculately maintained, mostly mid-century ranch-style houses with wide lots – perfect for backyard baseball games and family barbecues – are Arcadia’s signature. Highly respected area schools add to the allure.
The Arcadia neighborhood is one of the most desirable addresses in Phoenix. Leafy streets, historic citrus groves, and some of the best dining and shopping in the Valley of the Sun make this one of Phoenix's most picturesque and popular neighborhoods.
Perhaps the most prominent natural landmark in the Phoenix Metro area, Camelback Mountain, named so for its uncanny resemblance to a kneeling camel, has been called the soul of Phoenix. The Arcadia neighborhood offers unbeatable views of the mountain, and easy access to some of the best hiking in the city at Camelback Mountain Echo Canyon Recreation Area, situated between the Arcadia neighborhood and the town of Paradise Valley.
