The census-designated place (CDP) of Anthem in Maricopa County is known across the Arizona as a shopping mecca. But there is far more to this place than just shopping splurges.
Founded only in 1999, Anthem has already become a multi-awarded North Phoenix suburb. The fact that it already has more than 27,000 residents, most of whom are part of family households, says a lot about the level of demand for homes in this area.
Nestled at the foothills of Daisy Mountain, Anthem has an elevation of about 1,800 to 2,400 feet. This gives the locale a relatively cooler climate than most of the Greater Phoenix area.
Located along the Black Canyon Freeway (Interstate 17), Anthem is 30 miles to the north of Downtown Phoenix. It lies north of the Desert Hills community of the New River CDP. The sister communities of Cave Creek and Carefree are located just 20 miles to the east.
