El Mirage once lived up to its name as a rural farmland town with crops growing strong in the flat west desert landscape that sits at the edge of West Phoenix, Arizona. Today, however, this small mirage of a town is the gateway to the Northwest Valley of the greater Phoenix Metropolitan area and has witnessed a 400 percent growth rate in the past five years, making this once rural area one of the fastest growing communities in the Valley of the Sun.
