Review Apache Junction
I love the small-town vibe and community warmth with my neighbors. We are on the outskirts of the hustle and bustle, so things are a little more slow paced. The views don't hurt either!
In Apache Junction, it really depends on where you are to really know anything about the town. If your in town it is easy to get places because all the roads are pretty much connected and all of your businesses are along a single street. If your along the outskirts expect a short drive time, approximately 10 to 20 minutes depending on your location. The town is in the process of improving its image by building and bringing in new business opportunities. It is generally a quiet place with beautiful scenery, including the infamous Superstition Mountain.
Apache Junction, Arizona has clearly expressed the desire to grow and revitalize the downtown. Back in 1978 when my parents moved our family from New York to Apache Junction, Arizona, it was quite the culture shock. We moved from city living to this little desolate town that seemed to be about 2 miles long. There was desert every where, one grocery store, 2 elem. schools, and the JR and SR High shared buildings. It was a very fun town to grow up in, everyone knew everyone. Now this town has grown and populated like nobodies business. There has been numerous shopping centers built and we even got a WalMart. Its a little western town which is the home of the beautiful Superstition Mountains and carries the history of Jacob Waltz and his hidden pot of gold, a part of history that has yet to be explained. This is a very interesting place to grow up to say the least.
