Arcadia Lite

Hip. Funky. Fresh.  Arcadia Lite is known for its trendsetting style and eclectic crowd.  This part of the neighborhood is where you can find hotspots like La Grande Orange, Postinos, The Vig, The Attic, Little Woody’s, Tee Pee, and the Madison Improvement Club…to name a few. Arcadia Lite is great for those that want the central location and Arcadia aesthetic in a mid-range budget.  The neighborhood has seen a lot of turnover in the past few years and it is now home to many young professionals who want to be close to major business and entertainment centers.  If you work near the Esplanade, downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale, or further North then this location provides you with a quick commute.

Arcadia Lite is highly regarded for its tight-knit community and safe streets.  You will typically find people hanging out for coffee in the mornings at La Grande Orange,  having a glass of wine during the evenings at Postinos, or in their front yard on adirondacks.  The canal and quiet streets of Arcadia Lite provide a great place for those that love taking walks or runs.

If you are new to the area I would suggest taking a day to bike ride down some of these beautiful streets and visit the local hangouts.  You will instantly gravitate towards this area because of its hip and vibrant charm.  There is a reason Arcadia Lite was recently named one of the hottest neighborhoods in Phoenix.
