Anthem was voted the "Best Master Planned Community in America" by the National Association of Home Builders in 2001 and by the Home Builders Association of Central Arizona in 2000 and 2001. Additionally, the community's developer, Del Webb, was voted Builder of the Year by Professional Builder magazine in 1999 and has been a top rated builder by JD Powers for several years running. For those visiting this county club community for the first time, it quickly becomes apparent why Anthem has received so many awards and accolades in its short existence.

Once outside the community, a world of opportunity exists whether one's pursuit is recreation, education or employment. Downtown Phoenix is less than a 20-minute drive away and is home to a litany of cultural amenities such as museums, theatres, performance halls, concert venues, parks and ethnic centers featuring a diverse collection of specialty restaurants, markets, shops and boutiques. Several major shopping malls are within a short drive. The Outlets at Anthem, Desert Ridge Marketplace, Metro Center Shopping Mall, Scottsdale Fashion Square and the Arrowhead Towne Center are all accessible. Phoenix is also a sports Mecca when it comes to collegiate and professional athletics. So much so that Phoenix is only one of 12 United States cities that has major league sports teams in the four major sports - baseball, basketball, football and hockey.
For those who enjoy the outdoors, Anthem's year-round sunshine makes this region a recreational paradise for avid golfers, hikers, mountain bikers, and softball, basketball and tennis players.
