Like the city of Chandler, Gilbert was originally founded for agricultural use. The city used to be known as the Hay Capital of the World. In the past two decades, Gilbert has grown tremendously attracting a young, affluent community. Gilbert was recognized in 2010 as the “36th Best Place to Live in the nation,” as well as among the nation’s “top places to live and learn” by GreatSchools.org.
Gilbert has many options when it comes to having fun. The Gilbert Art Walk occurs several times each month and is free to the public. Visitors can look at local artist’s work in downtown Gilbert. The Big League Dreams Sports Park is another attraction. The park hosts soccer and softball games but is known for its replicas of famous baseball stadiums.
Gilbert also has three top-notch medical care facilities: Banner Gateway Medical Center, Gilbert Hospital and Mercy Gilbert Medical Center. Businesses looking to be in a popular, growing area will find success in this city.
