The famous Fountain!
Fountain Hills is well-described as an upscale desert community with hometown character. The richness and quality of life here is evident the moment you crest the mountain pass, leaving behind the hustle and bustle of Scottsdale and the rest of the Phoenix area.
Fountain Hills is most famous for its namesake Fountain, which rises almost 350 feet into the air every hour for fifteen minutes. But one of the town's most valuable assets is its natural beauty. Nestled among the rolling foothills of the rugged McDowell Mountains, the lush Sonoran desert landscape and its vistas are breathtaking! Locals and visitors both enjoy a range of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, boating, and some of the more challenging and picturesque golf courses you will find in the country.
The town's spirit comes alive year-round with a host of town-sponsored cultural and recreational events such as several Art Festivals, Ballet-in-the-Park, Broadway-in-the-Park, Oktoberfest, Disc-Golf Tournaments, a St. Patrick's Day Celebration, a Thanksgiving Parade and so much more!
Great schools and many local clubs are a cornerstone of life here too! Many unique shops and locally-owned restaurants add to the hometown charm.
