Gilbert

Gilbert is the largest “town” in the U.S. located just 20 minutes southeast of Phoenix. It was put on the map during World War 1 when it helped supply alfalfa to feed the Calvary’s horses earning the nickname as the Hay Shipping Capital of the World.  This prime farming community has had tremendous growth over the past two decades and is now a booming suburb recently voted by CNN Money as the 33rd Best Place to Live.
