"Deer Valley Is A Little On The Industrial Side, But Is Still A Decent Area"

I moved to the Deer Valley area in order to be close to my employer, as I was working at the PetSmart Corporate office off of I-17 at the time. There are other corporate offices in the area including Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, American Express, Discover Card Services, Safeway and Lucent Technologies. The Deer Valley airport is also close by, which features car rental services, a restaurant, a gift shop and a flight school. I found that there is a lack of convenience in terms of quality grocery shopping in the area. There are grocery stores around like Fry's and Safeway, but they are the smaller/lower end versions of these stores. There are many apartment complexes in the area and lots of moderately priced houses, etc. I don't think that this is the best area for children. It is a concrete jungle for the most part. Nightlife in this area is pretty much non existent except for the occasional strip club or restaurant bars at places like the Macaroni Grill. I have also noticed some graffiti in select parts of the Deer Valley area. I don't know what the crime rate in the area is, but there are alot of transient people and college students that go to UTI's MMI (motorcycle technology school), so there are alot of motorcycles around creating noise. If you are looking for shopping in the area, it is fairly limited. If you need to do major shopping, the best option is to venture east on the 101 to the Desert Ridge Marketplace. http://www.shopdesertridge.com/
