More on Living in Apache Junction
The name sounds like it's taken right out of the Western history book but Apache Junction, located on an unpaved stagecoach trail to the nearby Superstition Mountains became a historical landmark and scenic byways that was open to the public in 1922 and currently part of a 120-mile long "circle trail" that begins and ends in Apache Junction.
Flanked by rugged mountains, vast deserts, and a beautiful expanse of the outdoors, Apache Junction has been noted as one of the best places in the state to explore. It's not unusual to find wildflowers blooming throughout the area and residents, locals, and visitors alike can experience an exhilarating zip line ride at Goldfield Ghost Town, explore history at Superstition Mountain Museum, and do a little mining of your own at the Mammoth Mine Rock Shop.
Apache Junction is known for its iconic mountain range home to some of the state's most photographed trails and canyons. Locals call it the "Supes" and legend has it that immigrants discovered gold in them-there hills and wilderness and to this day, tons of gold have been unearthed throughout the region. Along the Apache Trail, you can mine for gold yourself at the Goldfield Ghost Town or ride Arizona's only narrow gauge railroad. But, we like the gold of a different kind, the beautiful desert sunrises and sunsets that draw most visitors and homeowners to Apache Junction. Whether you're hiking, horseback riding, or offloading, Apache Junction is definitely worth the trip.

"Lived in A.J. seven years now. Originally from the burbs of Chicago. Great community. Easy to get most anywhere in the East Valley from here - live in far Northeast area; Superstitions are out our living room and dining room windows. Fabulous weather, great views, plenty or places to ride our horses and large homes with acreage for very reasonable prices and low taxes in Pinal County part of A.J."
"I love how beautiful and calm this area is and it's at the same time very close to the city. However I would definitely do some changes such as accessibility, a better night life so young people know where to go that is not so far from home, more stores and schools." - Niche.com
