Apache Junction Real Estate Information

As the terminus of the Route 60 freeway, Apache Junction lies at the western edge of Mesa and serves as a suburban neighborhood in support of the Phoenix-Scottsdale-Mesa metropolitan area. Split between Maricopa and Pinal counties, there are over 33,000 people who call Apache Junction home. The city is named after the junction of the Apache Trail and the U.S. Highway 60 that intersect in the city center. The picturesque Superstition Mountains are located nearby and provide a dynamic backdrop for residents.

One of the largest annual events in Apache Junction is the Arizona Renaissance Festival and Artisan Marketplace. The festival includes twelve stages of continuous live entertainment, an outdoor circus, a medieval arts and crafts fair, a jousting tournament, and a day-long feast. The festival is open on the weekends from the beginning of February through the end of March. Besides the festival, there are a number of other attractions and places to visit. Prospector Park and Equestrian Park are quite popular with outdoors adventurists while the Goldfield Ghost Town and Superstition Mountain Museum suit indoors people best. Canyon Lake is another popular attraction. The recently completed Apache Junction Parks and Recreation Multi-Generational Center is one of Apache Junction residents’ favorite places to be because of its large fitness center, special interest classes, sports leagues, senior citizen classes, and other large community meetings and events.

Superstition Gateway West is the main shopping plaza for residents of Apache Junction, although residents can easily drive into Mesa should they like to shop at big box or other brand name retailers and stores. Apache Junction is conveniently located near a cluster of golf courses situated on the outskirts of town. Superstition Mountain Club, Golf Camp, and Golf Canyon Golf Resort are all just a few minutes away. South of Apache Junction’s central area is the Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport, formerly known as Williams Air Force Base. The airport serves the area’s commercial and general aviation needs and is a reliever for the much more central and popular Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Although there is only one commercial airline, Allegiant Air, the airport is served with non-stop service to over a dozen destinations throughout the United States, including Bellingham, Chicago, Eugene, Medford, Missoula, Rwapid City, Springfield, and Sioux Falls.
