    Get carefree in classy Carefree

    Carefree is a welcoming little nugget of suburbia that's sandwiched between the scrub-topped hills of the Tonto National Forest and the northern fringes of Phoenix city. Upscale and classy, it was once known for its desert-side film studios, although today the Silver Screen has been traded for cacti-peppered golf courses, horse riding ranches, and Wild West saloons where locals chatter over frothy craft brews. Carefree vacation rentals are also your chance to conquer the great Sonoran Desert _ think hikes and biking tours around the toppling hoodoos and canyons.

    Country pursuits in Carefree

    Carefree is a fine place to trade in the office gear for the country wear. Trailheads start in the town center and weave deep into the hills of the beautiful Tonto National Forest. Bridle paths beckon those who enjoy a spot of horse riding. And there are dusty mountain biking routes aplenty for adventurers who want to get the adrenaline pumping. Back in the heart of town and you'll also find sprawling shopping malls with high-street fashion outlets for that retail hit, not to mention plenty of hickory-scented cowboy kitchens. Smoked burros anyone?

    Enjoying Phoenix and Tonto from Carefree

    Staying in Carefree vacation rentals means you can enjoy all the awesome attractions of Phoenix, from the sequoia-topped Desert Botanical Park to the sprawling gardens of Phoenix Zoo _ think roaring lions, galumphing elephants, and prowling black bears. Other sights exist in Carefree itself, like the historic ruins of the Sears-Kay fortress on the hills, and the Carefree Sundial, which is said to be one of the largest in the entire Western Hemisphere. And that's not even mentioning the natural draws of the great Tonto National Forest, which unfolds in creeks and canyons just to the north.

    Fall to spring in Carefree

    Because Carefree sits on the edge of the arid Arizonan deserts, you can expect dry weather and oodles of sun for much of the year. In fact, the high summer sees the mercury levels shoot upwards, which is probably why most folk search for their Carefree vacation rentals during the cooler months between September and March. That's when you can still enjoy heat in the middle of the 60s and 70s, and around just 3 days of rain per month.

    Carefree is crammed between the rocks

    Carefree could just be the perfect springboard for enjoying the natural delights of Arizona. You won't have to go far from the doorstep of most Carefree vacation rentals to join the trails of Cave Creek Park, or even the longer hiking routes of the Tonto National Forest. And talking of Tonto, it's that vast wilderness of more than 3 million acres where you'll discover some of the Wild West's most breathtaking wonders. Mountain lions stalk the bluffs of the Hellsgate Wilderness within its borders, there are caves and canyons aplenty in the Sierra Ancha, dense pine forests around Mazatzal peak _ the list goes on.
