Fountain Hills was named by Phoenix Magazine as the best place to live in the Valley of the Sun and was cited as "a welcome oasis on the outskirts of a metropolis." The magazine measured the quality of life in twenty-two Valley communities, including the statistical analysis of each community's population, income, home price, crime rate, miles to Sky Harbor Airport, and square feet of retail. The criteria used by the magazine in this ranking are similar to the priorities established in the Town's Strategic Plan. The volunteer spirit and high level of involvement of the citizens and business representatives were highlighted.

Fountain Hills has been names the "Best Affordable Suburb" in all of Arizona. They evaluated suburbs on a variety of factors but weighted affordability most heavily. Fountain Hills' low population density is a major reason it is such a desirable place to live. Unlike other regions of the Valley one can dine, play, and commute, without congestion.
