The dusty desertscapes, craggy rock formations, and wildly growing cacti that make up the scene at Apache Junction make travelers feel as though they have been transported onto the set of an old John Wayne movie. Apache Junction is the embodiment of the true Wild West and as well as plenty to keep visitors occupied, it has a fascinating and mysterious history as well.
Exploring Lost Dutchman State Park, amid the Superstition Mountains, is one of the most fascinating things to do in Apache Junction. According to legend, there is a gold mine nestled somewhere in the heart of this region and those who were lucky enough to find it and emerge with riches had difficulty locating it again or died under mysterious circumstances. Today, the Lost Dutchman State Park is enjoyed for its hiking trails and unusual caves that show signs of being former dwellings for Native Americans. The trails here offer something for people of every ability and who knows, if you're lucky you may once again stumble upon the Lost Dutchman's gold.
Another site not to miss while in Apache Junction is the Goldfield Ghost Town -- an abandoned wooden 18th-century town where tours into the old mines are led by costumed actors, and reenactments of life in the times of cowboys and Indians take place.
