The Town of Cave Creek is located in the northern part of the Valley, northeast of Phoenix and northwest of Scottsdale. It is just west of Carefree, which is often considered a sister community. Black Mountain is to the south and Elephant Butte is to the north.
Cave Creek has a genuine western attitude. Here you'll find many horse properties, saloons and rodeo events. There's no shortage of shops here, so if you are looking for western jewelry, one-of-a-kind pottery, cowboy furniture, a cow head (you can never find one in Phoenix when you need one), a pair of boots, antiques or a lamp with horns, this is the place.
