Cave Creek

Cave Creek, Arizona's most culture filled town.  From bikers to cowboys to golfers, musicians & artists, Cave Creek has it all.  Cave Creek was founded in the mid 1870's as a mining town and camp for the U.S. Cavalry and has maintained its western charm ever since.   Cave Creek locals or "Creekers" hold its western history and culture very dear.  The town slogan is "Where the Wild West Lives."   With a past full of gun fights, indian wars, and mining and a present that maintains the old west through western saloons and western themed restaurants,  and retail stores, its rodeo events, lively biker events, and growing live music scene, Cave Creek has earned this title and maintains it 24/7, 365 days a year.  Cave Creek Live celebrates the uniqueness of Cave Creek and keeps you updated on its lively events.  Visit our pages often for the latest updates about everything in Cave Creek, Arizona, and the surrounding area.
