Is Living in Downtown Phoenix for You?

We understand that location is one of the most important factors in deciding where to live. That’s why BridgeWater Assisted Living has taken great care in selecting the right locations for our community residents. We want you to feel at home when you choose to stay at one of our assisted living communities.

If you’re considering our midtown campus, you may be wondering what living in Downtown Phoenix is like. So here’s a little taste of what you can expect from downtown Phoenix living.

Arts and Culture

Downtown Phoenix is Arizona’s center for arts, culture, and entertainment. Whether you enjoy browsing art in a museum or taking in a live theatre performance, there’s plenty for you to experience.

The Heritage & Science Park is home to several museums as well as the Arizona Science Center. You can also take in a performance at the Orpheum Theatre, the Valley’s only remaining historic theatre. Or have a good laugh at a comedy show at the Arizona Federal Theatre.

From murals to galleries to live entertainment, there’s much to see and explore in Downtown Phoenix.

Fine Dining

BridgeWater offers residents the opportunity to dine in at our chef-catered restaurant or go out on the town for a meal with friends. If you choose to dine out, you’ll have plenty of options in the Downtown Phoenix area. In fact, Downtown Phoenix has more than 200 restaurants, offering a great selection of dining experiences.

Need a coffee fix to get your morning started off right? You’ll have 40 coffee shops to choose from when you opt for Downtown Phoenix living. Check out this dining guide for a culinary tour of everything Downtown Phoenix has to serve up.

Sporting Events

If you’re a sports fanatic, Downtown Phoenix is the perfect place for you. There is no shortage of sporting events for you to attend. The Talking Stick Resort Arena is home to the Suns, Mercury, and Rattlers. Located along the Light Rail line, the arena is easy to get to by public transportation. Chase Field is also home to the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Whether you’re a baseball, football, or basketball fan, Downtown Phoenix has just the team for you to cheer on.

A Scenic Landscape

When you live in Downtown Phoenix, you’ll be surrounded by vibrant downtown activities, but you’ll also be able to take in the breathtaking desert landscape. When you choose to live at our seven-story midtown Phoenix community, you’ll be able to take in beautiful mountain views. It’s the perfect combination of city life and desert living.

At BridgeWater, residents can be as independent as they’d like. You can choose to spend the day exploring Downtown Phoenix or stay in and enjoy all the amenities that BridgeWater has to offer instead.

We’re also creating opportunities for our residents to engage in local community events, philanthropic projects, and local civic affairs. We don’t believe life should slow down as you get older. In fact, we believe this is the time to live life to its fullest.

So if living in Downtown Phoenix sounds right for you, come visit our Midtown Phoenix community. We’d be happy to show you everything BridgeWater and Downtown Phoenix have to offer.
