Ahwatukee, "the land in the next valley" is an affluent community nestled against South Mountain in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. Ahwatukee was first developed by George Presley, the uncle of Elvis Presley in 1972 and been home to famous folks from the beginning. Professional athletes, musicians, authors and politicians all call Ahwatukee home, yet it is anything but pretentious.
It is the southernmost urban village of Metro Phoenix and it is the one with the strongest sense of independence. Ask an Ahwatukee resident, and although they have a Phoenix address, they will tell you they live in Ahwatukee, not Phoenix. While its affluence is evident in the homes of Ahwatukee, the stores and restaurants, its residents' demeanor is friendly and inviting. Ahwatukee has great restaurants and dining out is a staple for those who call it home. It has been remarked by media personalities that a night out for dinner in Ahwatukee would make anyone believe that the economic news of this decade has yet to make its impact known in Ahwatukee, as service is still top notch, prices are fair, and the restaurants are brimming with patrons enjoying a nice evening out.
