The area is primarily residential.
Of the many appealing features of Sabino Vista are its rolling hills, picturesque winding roads, and mature landscaping that includes mesquite, eucalyptus, and pine trees, as well as the stately saguaro.

No one knows for sure where the name “Sabino” comes from, but many have speculated that the canyon was named after Sabino Otero, an 1800s area rancher, while others have suggested that the name comes from the Spanish word “sabino,” meaning red.
