Welcome to Gilbert

Gilbert – One of the Country’s Best Places to Live!

A prosperous town in the south east Metro Phoenix area, Gilbert has seen huge growth in the last 40 years. Incorporated in 1920 and historically the ‘Hay Capital of the World’, Gilbert has grown from a farming community based around the railroad to a thriving family-friendly urban suburb.

Gilbert - A 21st Century Boom Town!

One of the fastest growing communities in the entire country, Gilbert’s population has grown from 6,000 in 1980 to 260,000 in 2020. The Town of Gilbert, and yes it remains a town not a city, is continually ranked as one of the best places to live…not just in Arizona, but in the entire U.S. The most recent accolades received by the town include landing at #46 on Money’s 2020-21 Best Places to Live rankings after an analysis of more than 1,800 U.S. cities and towns across the country.

In 2020 Gilbert was also named the most prosperous large city in the nation by Economic Innovation Group. The study evaluated the economic performance of the country’s 100 largest towns and cities based on seven different metrics including poverty, education, housing vacancy, work, incomes, job growth and business openings.

Live in Gilbert – Access Everything

The San Tan Freeway (202 loop) to the south and east, the loop 101 to the west and the proximity of the US60 to the north make Gilbert a very accessible, and desirable place to call home. Sky Harbor Airport is about 25 minutes away when traffic is flowing, and you can get to downtown Phoenix for a baseball or basketball game in about 30 minutes. Drive 30 minutes in the other direction and you will find yourself in the wilderness of the Superstition Mountains. That’s one of the things that residents of this town love; proximity to the amenities of city life or the natural wonder of a hike in the mountains.

While still a family friendly community, the town has also evolved in recent years. The Heritage District in old downtown Gilbert with its famous water tower is now home to more than 30 bars and restaurants. People now travel from all over the valley for a night out here!
