Take a break and visit Chandler in your RV rental from RVshare! One of the fastest growing cities in Arizona, the city of Chandler was once dependent on the agricultural industry. There was a period of time when the city’s population declined and there was no sign of economic growth but during the 1980s, its proximity to the city of Phoenix positively affected the city. Agricultural land were turned into residential areas, which in turn, lured new investors into the city particularly big computer companies such as Intel, Motorola, Microchip, to name a few. Its growth as a city was recognized by the National Civic League in 2011 when it named Chandler as an All-America City.
