Anthem Visitor's Guide
Within barely a decade, Anthem has grown from a sparse desert at the foot of Daisy Mountain to an incredible little town conveniently located just north of Phoenix. With six elementary schools and its own high school (Boulder Creek), Anthem is a family dream community with one of the best areas to raise children. Dozens of parks, a community center, and miles of biking and hiking trails give residents the perfect setting to enjoy the incredible climate that central Arizona has to offer.
Anthem has become a great destination for anyone visiting from out of state or even from elsewhere in the valley. The continuously updated outlet mall with nearly 90 outlet stores is a huge draw but the nearly two dozen restaurants and numerous retail shops that fill the six major retail centers within Anthem are also gaining recognition as well. Additionally, although the huge community park was designed for resident enjoyment, it provides a great place to let the children run around and play on features such as the castle park, Anthem train, volleyball courts, outdoor basketball courts, picnic areas, baseball fields, soccer fields and so much more.
