Valley Attractions


The Valley of the Sun continues to attract those who want to escape the cold winter months in other parts of the country. The dry southwestern climate gives the valley a summer high temperature of 104 degrees and winter low temperature of 35 degrees.

There are many historical attractions nearby. The Goldfield Ghost Town was an old mine boomtown in the 1890's. Visitors are welcome at the reconstructed Mammoth Mine to see what yesteryear living was like. Mining pieces, antique shops, and underground mine and railroad equipment are available for the visitor to enjoy. The town has exhibits you can tour, along with carriage rides, a railroad train tour and gold panning.

Mesa's location in the East Valley is ideal for outdoor activities. The famous Apache Trail is a winding road that takes drivers north out of town up to a series of lakes(Fishing Allowed). This drive is one of the more breathtaking drives in the state.

The Lost Dutchman State Park is a 320-acre site with many activities available to its visitors. The Superstition Mountains offer hiking and the quest for the Lost Dutchman Gold. Legend has it that the gold is hidden somewhere in the mountains. There is a visitor's center, camping, picnicking, mountain biking and horseback riding trails at the park.
