There aren't too many modern amenities in Queen Creek and I'm not aware of any condos. A few major chain retail stores have finally opened but still waiting for a movie theater. The width of the streets in certain communities are a bit more narrow than others, but that's just probably because the developer wanted to pack as many homes in as possible. There are plans to eventually bring an extension of the freeway down to Queen Creek, but that's probably many, many, many years away. The rush hour drive in & out of Queen Creek for some is not the most favorite activity to participate in. There are 2, maybe 3 ways to get in/out of Queen Creek & during rush hour, it's quite busy . But I've heard that the sometimes quiet nights and starry skies are quite nice. I think the main reason for the very cheap real estate in Queen Creek is based on the location. Remember, the key word in real estate is location, location, location. So, I digress.
The best county? Well that depends on each person & what they want to do, what they like, where they work, acceptable crime rates, etc.
There are some golf courses, but any where you live in the Phoenix metro area, you are only 5-10 minute drive from a golf course. There are so many golf courses in the Phoenix metro area, that you could probably golf at a different course every day for a year.
There aren't too many other activities to do in Queen Creek. Oh! I forgot to mention that if you are an ATV or a dirt bike enthusiast, you'll have plenty access in Queen Creek.
Queen Creek is mainly a commuter town and not necessarily a hub of urban activity, but it is definitely a place where cheap real estate prices abound.
