Welcome to Gilbert

Gilbert is a town located southeast of Phoenix within the city’s metropolitan area. Once known as the “Hay Shipping Capital of the World”, it is the fifth-largest municipality in Arizona, and the fourth-largest in the Phoenix metro area.

Thriving in business and leisure activities, access to a nationally ranked public school district, and Gilbert has been recognized as one of the Best Places to Live in the United States by CNN/Money Magazine. Gilbert is the biggest small town you’ll ever meet. Laced with 217 kilometers of equestrian and cycling trails and expansive enough to include five lauded golf courses, Gilbert’s made the most of its spacious borders, agricultural roots and scrappy Western culture. It’s got farmland, cutting-edge art and a heritage area that keeps the town’s rustic soul alive, even as it welcomes the new. The sun is always shining here, making every season the best season to visit – so long as you have a pair of sunglasses.
 
Gilbert’s Heritage District, or downtown Gilbert like the locals call it, is just three blocks long, its dozens of restaurants and shops make it feel like more. Stop into Liberty Market and Lolo’s Chicken and Waffles, both local favorites. Don’t forget Joe’s Real Barbecue for slow-smoked deliciousness. Beloved musicals and plays are always on stage at historic Hale Centre Theatre Arizona, while history buffs will be well-served by Gilbert Historical Museum’s multi-media archives commemorating Western U.S. culture. For a glimpse into what area artists are working on, explore Art Intersection, a gallery that doubles as a studio, as well as a hub for workshops and lectures.
