Yes, Goodyear, AZ, was named after the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. Luckily for the company, this area used to have plenty of farmland where they could grow cotton for their tires. Today, though, Goodyear, AZ is anything but a sleepy farm town! Instead, it's a thriving Phoenix suburb.
More than 65,000 people now call Goodyear home, and the city is chock full of stores, restaurants, and fun places to hang out. In fact, plans are in the works to build a mall that would offer more than two million square feet of shopping!
Luckily, though, Goodyear is also home to Estrella Mountain Regional Park, which is made up of nearly 20,000 acres of desert and mountains. So, if you live in Goodyear, you'll have all of the big-city amenities you need, but you'll get to look out your windows and see things that most big-city residents can only dream of!
