I stayed with my grandparents in Casa Grande for three years during my college days. The city's close proximity to Tucson and Phoenix offers all residents of Casa Grande an easy access to these twin cities. While Phoenix is just 45 minutes away from the city, Tucson is just one hour from Casa Grande. This beautiful and historic town boasts a rich history and rural heritage.
This beautiful city is known for the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument. This national monument is one of the popular attractions near to this city. What I love about Casa Grande is the typical small town charm. No matter when you visit, you will surely find some cultural events to participate in and enjoy. The town features beautiful and fast-growing communities. The climate in Casa Grande is consistent with an average temperature of 70 degree F.
Shopping in Casa Grande includes a beautiful outdoor shopping center known as The Promenade. This open mall features a number of stores within the mall's 100-acres of setting. The look of the mall resembles the Desert Ridge Marketplace in Phoenix. As the town is sparingly populated, you can experience a peaceful and friendly lifestyle here. As per the 2014 census, this small city has a total of 47,675 residents.
The economy of Casa Grande is mainly dependent on agricultural industries. Most of the residents work in cotton and dairy farms. Locals also work in new businesses like gas stations, retail outlets and restaurants. Another thing that I like about Casa Grande is its cost of living, which is 7.60 percent lower than the USA average. Families will also be happy to know that the city has good elementary and public schools and a number of public and charter high schools. In addition, the city has two private high schools and two colleges as well.
