Desert Ridge is one of our favorite locations in North Phoenix. Located off the 101/51 and just west of Scottsdale, this community is a great example of live, work, play! We are a little bit biased on our love of the area, because everyone on The Henbest Team lives in Desert Ridge! We are truly neighborhood experts!
Here is a great overview to the area, plus a close-up look at Aviano and Toscana!
We also want to share some of our restaurant favorites with you in the neighborhood!
