Compare Chandler to Top 10 Best Places
Feathered hats may not be the rage anymore, but Chandler's annual Ostrich Festival certainly is: It's the town's nod to the ostrich farms that used to dot the area.
Today, technology has displaced feathers as big business here, with a major presence by computer chip maker Intel. And the second largest mall in the Phoenix area -- the 180+ stores in the Chandler Fashion Center -- is a shopper's paradise.
On the downside, public transportation is weak: many local bus routes to Phoenix end a few miles outside of town.
