The city of Laveen is a rich and vibrant city, filled with people who love the Arizona scenary and weather. Communities in subdivisions and Custom homes stretch out accross the city. Right next to Laveen is the South Mountain that has many trails for hikers, bikers, and horse back riders. For those a bit more adventurous there are areas up the slope of the mountain where people will be able to hang glide down to the base.
Through out the year Laveen has events, festivals, and many other activities around the community. On November 6th there is the annual Festival of Thanksgiving Parade on Central Avenue where the Laveen and South Mountain community gathers to have a great time and celebrate with one another. For additional information on what is happening around the community check out the South Mountain Villager's monthly magazine which can be picked up for free around the community. South Mountain Villager's website has a slew of events and activities that people can check out or even volunteer for.
Next to Laveen are several restaurants that are tucked away in the South Mountain community. One not-so-secret secret is Los Dos Molinos located at Central Ave and Euclid Ave. I enjoy eating here primarily for the amazing salsa served. If you haven't had the opportunity to try it out, I would strongly recommend you do. Another place that I enjoy eating at is Poncho's. Any restaurant that a President of the United States has eaten at is a place to check out, and that holds double with Poncho's. Their food is great, and there is a lot of it. When you first walk in, it seems a lot smaller than it is, but then it just seems to get bigger and bigger.
Laveen has two golf courses: Bougainvillea Golf Club (Private) and Aguila Golf Course (Public) .
