About This Community

Apache Junction is located in Greater Phoenix’s East Valley, with easy access to freeways including the U.S. 60 and the Loop 202. The city serves as a gateway community to the Superstition Mountains and the mining communities of east central Arizona, yet is conveniently located just 15 miles from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and 30 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The city’s nearly 40,000 residents are the center of a trade area. With the annual influx of an additional 30,000 seasonal residents and winter visitors, Apache Junction remains a very desirable place to call home.

Central Arizona College – Superstition Mountain Campus and the Arizona operations of Blue Bell Ice Cream both call Apache Junction home.  Apache Junction is also home to 7,700 master planned acres within the Superstition Vistas  planned corridor where an estimated 500,000 Arizonans are expected to live in the coming decades.
