When you're not working, where in Gilbert do you spend your time? *
As a resident of Gilbert and the wonderful Power Ranch Community, my husband and I, along with our two teenagers, Bryanna and Jack, enjoy spending time in the sunshine and being outdoors, hanging out with friends and at local spots including Four Silos, Barnone, downtown Gilbert, and all the wonderful restaurants and stores at San Tan Village, just to name a few. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found Gilbert and moved our family here from Minnesota in 2016. We are proud to be a part of the Power Ranch Community, Higley Unified School District, and the Town of Gilbert. It really is the best place to live.
