We were at Luke for 5 yrs. We LOVED it so much we built a home there. We also had a pool put in (a must!!!). Luke is a great base. There are many things for kids to do. The surrounding town/cities are great! It is HOT! Be ready for a large electric bill!! But the winters are great!! Eating Thanksgiving dinner poolside is pretty amazing! :)

My father was stationed at Luke Air Force Base from the time I was 6 until I was 14 or 15 years old. I actually lived 20mins away in Avondale, AZ. There are a lot places to shop, diner and have fun with family, singles and couples around and downtown is maybe a 20min drive away!

Prepare yourself for the heat. Anything above 110F is HOT no matter if it?ǨѢs a ?Ǩdry heat?ǨѢ or not.
There are a lot of outdoor things you can do, as mentioned be prepared for heat during the day and cold during the night. This is desert area. Familiarize yourself with dangerous animals in the area and what to do when you encounter them.

The BX has had generally good feedback and I found positive remarks about the very new shoppette.

Luke AFB is almost like a suburb to a large urban area of Scottsdale, Phoenix, Glendale and Mesa. Glendale being the closest to base. With Phoenix and Scottsdale close by, you have quick access to a large airport via a great freeway system.

Westgate has all the best restaurants and theater, is just down the street and so is the Peoria entertainment and sports district.

If you get tired of the heat take a trip two hours north to Flagstaff, where you can ski during the season or at least get a breather from the heat.

Luke is the largest F-16 base in the USAF and is a training base for several job fields, they run flights from 7am to 10pm M-TH and flights can run as late as 11pm some nights, Friday is the same except they cut flights short and you can usually hear flights ending by 6pm.

As with most military installations it?ǨѢs what you make it. Some you will like more and some you will have to work harder to ?Ǩlike?ǨѢ them. Be adventurous! Since you can?ǨѢt change anything, you might as well make the best of it.

+Animal Shelter: The shelter in Glendale is called Sun Valley Animal Shelter.
