"Main Street of Anthem, a planned community north of Phoenix"

Anthem is a quiet suburb north of Phoenix on the 10. The main street W Anthem Way leads into the neighborhood through a nice waterfall sculpture. As you come into Anthem there is a Safeway on the right, with the usual amenities, a Blockbuster, Domino's pizza, dry cleaners and some really decent restaurants. As you proceed further along Anthem Way there is another little strip mall on the left with a Hardware store, gas station and other little shops. Continuing further you come to the Anthem Community Center. It has baseball fields, a multilevel fishing pond with ducks and swans, and it's own waterpark. Inside the community center there is a heated swimming pool, a gym and lots of sports equipment.

Overall this is a really cool idea for a neighborhood, there's only one problem.

Anthem was designed to have lots of central amenities, but it's so big that it's simply not walkable. If you have small children or older relatives you have to load them in the car to take them anywhere in the community. Also, a lot of the space in the community is given over to parking for this very reason. It's a great effort though, and it looks wonderful.
