Located about halfway between Pheonix and Tuscon is the historic desert town of Casa Grande. Originally founded as a mining town in the late 19th century, today Casa Grande offers history, adventure, and if nothing else, a much-needed reprieve from the hustle and bustle of nearby cities. With about 55,000 permanent residents, Casa Grande has all the ingredients of a small town feel. There’s a main street, seasonal fairs, vintage trading posts and antique shops, sports bars, dive bars, and friendly cafes. Arguably the best part about Casa Grande is getting outside of town and into the surrounding nature. Amidst the vast desertscapes of Arizona, Casa Grande is within a stone’s throw of some excellent hiking trails, natural reserves, and green oases. If you’re embarking on a southern road trip across the U.S. along I-8 or I-10, Casa Grande is an excellent stop-off point.
First off, we recommend visiting the site to which Casa Grande owes its name. The Casa Grande Ruins National Monument is a collection of buildings that date back hundreds of years to indigenous farmers who once lived off the land. Visit the famous Casa Grande, which was the nation’s first officially recognized archeological preserve.
Next, jump forward a few centuries and see the archeological manifestations of the 1970s -- which are about as curious as you’d imagine. The Domes in Casa Grande are a collection of abandoned dome structures that were intended to be a facility for computer production. Today it’s supposedly a site for satanic rituals and witchcraft, but visiting during the day will be danger-free.
Other excellent options for things to do include visiting the 1920s-era Paramount theater, the Casa Grande Historical Society, Main Street, and the Promenade. If you’re looking to get outdoors, we highly recommend checking out Picacho Peak State Park and the Peralta Trail. Perhaps the best thing to do in our opinion, however, is visiting the Western Trading Post. Here you’ll find collectibles and antiques from bygone cowboy eras and vintage Native American finds. The worst that could happen is leaving town with a new 10-gallon hat.
Casa Grande is a relatively small town, so if you’re looking for a place to stay, we recommend staying right near Main Street. Casa Grande is a big golf retreat town, so there are tons of hotels tailored to golf enthusiasts. There are also great options for Airbnbs and more small-scale vacation rentals.
Due to the oppressive summer heat, the best time to visit Casa Grande is during the spring, fall, or winter. We recommend visiting in either March or October when the climate is perfect. Visiting during the winter will be a bit chilly, but prices will be lower as well.
