The temperatures here are usually about 10 degrees cooler than Phoenix, which lies about 100 miles to the south. Take a hike, go horseback riding, or mountain biking in Dead Horse Ranch State Park, Red Rock State Park, or in the Sycamore Canyon Wilderness. Visit nearby attractions such as Out of Africa Wildlife Park and Montezuma Castle National Monument.

The Fourth of July is also a special time in town, with a fireworks extravaganza and much more at Cottonwood Kids Park. Other popular events include Thunder Valley Rally and Walkin’ on Main. The Thunder Valley Rally is a motorcycle rally that also includes vendors, concerts, and much more. Walkin’ on Main is a time for the community and surrounding areas to come together to celebrate wine, art, cars, and music.
