Things to Do

Apache Junction is the gateway to the best outdoor playground in the Phoenix Valley. Come to disconnect from your urban life and enjoy the grandeur of the Superstition Mountains. Hike our mountains to find petroglyphs, waterfalls, unparalleled views of the valley and if you’re lucky the richest vane of gold in Arizona.

Our city is built upon a few core values: independence of attitude, love of the outdoors, and commitment to building a better community for current and future generations. Our residents are hardworking, salt of the earth folks and our local economy reflects their no nonsense attitude. Most of our businesses are locally owned and operated by real people chasing real dreams day by day.

So we invite you to escape the urban in the grandeur of our outdoor playground and support our truly local entrepreneurs build their dreams.
