I moved to Arizona 2 years ago and I have live in Buckeye for 1 year and it has been a great experience living in this location, due to the town being very old fashioned in some ways and people around here are extremely nice and friendly, which sometimes is missed in larger cities, where I have lived prior. I would recommend more group transportation availability, to get to places, but otherwise it is a very good area, especially the cost of living.
I would recommend everyone to move to Buckeye, AZ.

I currently live in Buckeye, Arizona and so far my experience living in this city is going great. I live in a quiet neighborhood and my neighbors are kind and helpful. It has great schools in the surrounding area as well. All of the major necessities are close by like shopping, groceries, and basic needs are within close driving distance. It has everything I need with the peaceful quietness behind my backyard.

Buckeye is an up and coming city. It is an old town that is turning into the new place to live. There is a new neighborhood, Verrado, that everyone wants to live at. The schools are wonderful especially Scott Libby Elementary. The only issue is if you are looking for night life or something to get your adrenaline running, there isn't much around. The community is great and does a lot of family fun events but if you are young and looking for the single life it isn't the place to move.
