In addition, Goodyear is just a short distance from downtown Phoenix, making it even more attractive.

The city is near the Estrella Mountains but it is also located near two freeways. Natural beauty combines with convenience in Goodyear, making it a lovely place to live. Named an "All-America City," this Arizona town joined just three others in the state as a recipient of the award: Tempe, Phoenix and Mesa. Those looking for apartment rentals will find that Goodyear is a good spot to find something that will provide convenient access to Phoenix and a wonderful environment in which to live.
