Carefree, An All American Town
Carefree is a typical small town community not unlike any other American small town. The town is just under 9 square miles and has a population of roughly 3,500. Plan a little extra time when you to to the local grocery store or the post office, you are sure to run into someone you know. Take a walk through the Carefree Desert Gardens, one of two public botanical gardens located in the Valley.
Activities are just one of the things that make Carefree unique. There is the weekly Farmer’s Market, the summer Sand Sculpting and fall Enchanted Pumpkin Garden by Ray Villafane, the award winning sand sculptor. Don’t miss the many art and wine festivals throughout the fall and spring months. Over the holiday season is the Carefree Christmas Festival the Electric Light Parade and tons of snow – in the desert.
