Apace Creek Gold Cour
A favorite pastime in the Southwest due to the great weather and picturesque backdrops is golfing. Apache Junction provides this entertainment and sporting option for residents with the Apache Creek Golf Course. This course features small and medium-sized greens that are sure to offer a competitive test for seasoned and amateur golfers alike. A championship, 71-par course with 18 holes, it also features a quality driving range to hone your long ball skills, as well as a pro shop for all your golf needs. Golfing professionals are also on hand to provide expert mentoring and lessons.
Taking a cruise in an area composed mostly of desert may seem out of place, but this is exactly what you get if you try to experience a bit of fun on the Dolly Steamboat. Apache Junction sits adjacent to the rather large Canyon Lake. The Dolly Steamboat tour, in operation since 1925, takes visitors on a scenic ride along the lake. There is a lot to see, as the tour goes through the Tonto National Forest and encompasses many of the sights of the Sonoran Desert. Sightseeing and dinner cruises are also available for evening rides.
Experiencing the local outdoors is a must in Apache Junction. Along with the beauty of nature, there is quite a bit of history connected with the surrounding areas to pique your interests. This is certainly the case with Gold Canyon. There is quite a bit to learn about the Native Americans who populated the area, as well as the people who would settle the area in later times. The canyon is at the base of Superstitions Mountain, with plenty of tours available to show you around and provide information about the local history of the area.
