City officials in Fountain Hills, northeast of Phoenix, like to say that beauty is the city's most valuable asset. The area's picturesque scenery provides the background to a number of recreational opportunities and annual events that often turn one-time visitors into long-term Fountain Hills apartment residents.
Fountain Hills plays host to a number of annual events to pique the interest of local apartment renters, including the annual Thanksgiving Day Parade, which was once billed as the only such parade held west of the Mississippi River, until Houston, Texas, started their own. Saint Patrick's Day is also a popular annual celebration in Fountain Hills, when apartment residents turn out at the city's renowned fountain to see it spout emerald-green water.
The fountain itself is a popular attraction for local apartment residents. When it was built in 1970, it was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records for being the world's tallest fountain, shooting water 560 feet into the air - 10 feet higher than the Washington Monument. Three turbine pumps operating at 600 horsepower shoot 7,000 gallons of water per minute through an 18-inch nozzle, according to town officials. Though it rests in the center of a large lake, the fountain shoots so high it can be seen nearly anywhere in the city.
Those renting apartments in Fountain Hills can also take advantage of a number of natural attractions, including McDowell Mountain Park and the Tonto National Forest.
