Avondale is a small suburb of Phoenix, Arizona. It has plenty of business that provide different services at different cost. Avondale also contains enough public schools for young students to attend to. Another awesome thing about Avondale is that it has a lot of parks for a lot of recreational activities. The public libraries are also a great access for recreations activities for people of all age. One thing to experience in Avondale is the Nascar racing events, which has a perfect background of the gorgeous avondale mountains. Overall Avondale is a small suburb of phoenix that is still being populated by a diversity of people,culture and tradition. One thing i would like to see change is Friendship Park located in Avondale to go under construction to repair the park fields ands restrooms!

This area in Phoenix is my favorite when it comes to picking a place for residency. I personally find Avondale very beautiful with its views and nature. Although it might be a little costly, it is worth all of it. Plus, there are many good public schools around that family members can attend. Avondale is one of the many reasons why Arizona is amazing!

There is so much that goes on in Avondale, Arizona. The public schools are one of the best with great teachers working closely with students. I should know because I grew up in this area. For the nightlife, most things close around 9-10 o'clock so for any exciting times you need to go out of the area. The only low point I would say is the commute time for work or other places. If you work in Phoenix or near there it will take roughly 30-40 minutes without traffic to get there. If you are looking to go to a football game at Westgate in Glendale you have to drive about 15-20 minutes to get to the area. Other than that you can see people walking around and gyms everywhere promoting healthy living and the diversity of people driving in their cars and riding bikes around town.
