Casa Grande, the second largest community in Pinal County, was founded in 1879 and incorporated in 1915, is named for the famous Hohokam Indian ruins 20 miles to the northeast. Known as a “community first” hometown, Casa Grande is a forward-looking city yet one that has retained its small-town charm.
Casa Grande, with a population of more than 45,000 full-time residents and about 20,000 part-time, winter residents, is located in the center of the megapolitan corridor. It is a 45-minute drive from Phoenix to the north and an hour from Tucson to the south, and at the intersection of two major interstates, I-10 and I-8. However, most residents feel that they can find whatever they need locally, without having to travel outside of the Casa Grande area.
Casa Grande is also known for its commercial and residential growth, retail and accommodation options, stable local economy, dedicated City and County governments, wide range of services including excellent schools, outstanding medical care, employment opportunities, affordable housing, and much more.
You will find a wide variety of shopping and dining experiences, historic sites, attractions, golf, movies, museums, community theatre, as well as many unique festivals and events, all which make our area uniquely prepared to celebrate Casa Grande’s exceptional appeal.
