Chandler is a city in its own right and one of the largest and most vibrant suburbs in all of Phoenix. Chandler has a lot to be proud of: Chandler was named in 2010 as an All-America City as bestowed by the National Civic League. The city has revitalized its historic downtown area, which includes the award-winning Chandler City Hall and Center for the Arts. Even Chandler High School dates back to 1914! However, Chandler is a modern place that positively pumps with business and commercial opportunities, being as it is the chosen location for high-tech communications and computing firms such as Microchip, Verizon and Intel.
Chandler residents may have all the benefits of living in such a thriving urban business hub but they can still enjoy a quieter, more suburban lifestyle in one of its many neighborhoods. There is so much for the family to enjoy. Chandler is a national leader in parks and recreation. In 2016 it was voted a ‘Playful City USA’ community, which is the tenth consecutive year that the city has been awarded that distinction (and is one of just 12 founding cities in all of the U.S. to receive this honor each year since the program was initiated in 2007). Chandler hosts the Rock -N- Roll Marathon and the Iron Man Triathlon. A person can enjoy the outdoors at the city’s seven world-class golf courses, as well as venues that offer tennis, swimming, hiking, horseback riding – well, the list is endless!
Chandler has so much more to offer. The quirky Ostrich Festival can be enjoyed each year, whilst The Chandler Center for the Arts is a magnificent 1,500-seat regional performing arts venue of wide repute. There is also the Arizona Railway Museum at Tumbleweed Park and a host of other places of interest. Chandler is a shopping paradise, with so much to choose from at Chandler Fashion Center, the Shoppes at Casa Paloma and Chandler Pavilions. A flourishing economy means that one is spoiled for choice in where to eat, ranging from chic restaurants to eateries specializing in ethnic cuisines, as well as national and regional chains.
