Downtown Apache Junction

The heart of the city is where the historic “Junction” once led travelers from the urban oasis into the vast mountain wilderness in search of the legendary Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine. Today, it boasts retail, entertainment, and recreational options for all ages. And, there’s room to add to the existing eclectic options for new and diverse selections of merchandise and cuisine. Freeway frontage opportunity abounds along the main freeway corridor through Apache Junction that runs through the community. The freeway also provides easy access to other transportation corridors. 

The freeway also provides easy access to other transportation corridors, two major airports, Phoenix Sky Harbor and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway, within minutes, and provides easy access to housing communities to the East. Several existing sites are available with even more opportunities for growth on State Lands as disposition occurs (twelve square miles of development potential within existing city limits)



  • Arizona Renaissance Festival attracting over some quarter-million visitors during their two-month celebration.
  • Lost Dutchman State Park attracting over a hundred thousand visitors annually, with breathtaking views, hiking, and recreational opportunities.

  • Tortilla Flat, an authentic remnant of an old stage stop and a haven for tourists, motorcycles, and those meandering the historic Apache trail.
  • Central Arizona College’s Superstition Mountain Campus sits in the heart of the downtown and serves the region with a variety of programs to meet the needs of all ages.
