For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May.
Neighborhoods in this region of North Phoenix (south of Cloud Road, east of I-17, north of Sonoran Desert Drive) have quick access to I-17, and three major shopping centers are each within a 10- to 15-minute drive: Outlets at Anthem to the north; Shops at Norterra and the Happy Valley Towne Center to the south. Four regional parks that offer hiking, fishing and boating are all within 30-minute drives — and Phoenix Sonoran Desert Preserve is right in some peoples’ backyards. It’s about a 35-mile drive to Sky Harbor International Airport.

One of the larger HOA-governed communities in the North Valley, Sonoran Foothills has more amenities than most nearby communities — all the things you'd expect in a master-planned development.

Remarkable architecture varies from closely-spaced, urban-like patio homes to sprawling hillside homes with broad vistas — and everything in between.
