Apache Junction is the last small town before you venture out into the Superstition Mountains -- where you will find dirt roads, hiking, three lakes, a damn, and a really good time.
Apache Junction has turned into a retirement village and a "snowbird" landing spot for older folks who wants to avoid the cold weather. The population goes from 10,000 during summer months to 140,000 in the winter months.
Apache Junction is gateway to mining towns, mountain ranges, the Renaissance festival, caving and many other sites. Apache Junction has an amazing thrift store area if that is your cup of tea. They have the standard thrift stores, estate thrift stores, flea markets and antique stores, it is a plethora of shopping delight in attempt to find a bargain or a deal.
Apache Junction is also the start of the Apache Trail, a mostly unpaved road through the mountains, following the Salt River past some beautiful lakes, ending at Roosevelt Dam and Lake. Also near the other end of the Trail is Tonto National Monument, with its fascinating ancient Native American cliff dwellings.
