Globe is a rural town with a lot of character. It has a thriving arts community, and the neighbors are friendly. What it lacks in the breadth of amenities often found in larger cities, it makes up for in having plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. You can find breathtaking canyons, lakes to sail and fish, and cooler weather up in the Pinal mountain if you're willing to drive 60-90 minutes away from downtown. Overall, I've enjoyed raising my family here!

Globe is a small mining town with some interesting history. This town is only an hour away from the city, a 30 minute drive from the lake, a 10 minute drive from the gorgeous pinals, and it even has its own haunted buildings that were shown on ghost adventures! The Mexican food here is delicious, especially with the variety of restaurants this town has as well. I enjoyed growing up here.
What do i like about Globe, AZ?
The drive to Globe regardless of what direction you're coming from is beautiful. The scenery surrounding this small warm town makes you feel right at home. Its definitely one of those "Friday night lights" type of towns. The food is AMAZING! If you're in the mood for some old fashion Mexican food this is the place to visit!
What would i change about this town?
Along with the good there is also bad. There is poor quality education and care for students and also faculty. If youre looking to visit malls, theme/amusement parks Globe not the place to visit.
