Without a doubt, Superior is your destination
for Adventure, Elevated!
From the breathtaking beauty of the Boyce Thompson Arboretum to the rugged trails on the Tonto National Forest designed for hiking, mountain biking and four wheeling, every adventure enthusiast can have a truly unique experience.
In downtown Superior, you can find the Queen Creek Canyon segment of the Legends of Superior Trails (LOST) — a trail full of history and adventure. This segment of trail will celebrate 100 years this year.
You can take a hike or bike ride on the first million-dollar highway (4-mile round trip) built in America. The entire Legends of Superior Trails traverses 12 miles and connects Picket Post to downtown Superior.
You can immerse yourself in Superior’s adventures of the past on a jeep tour with Superior Tour Company or a visit to the Bob Jones Museum.
During the summer, Superior temperatures are eight to 10 degrees cooler than the Phoenix Metro area, providing respite from the searing heat of the lower deserts.
Head inside during the day’s warmer hours for cool treats at Felicia’s Ice Cream shop, Bella’s Marketplace or Mountainside Coffee. Or cap your Superior adventure with a visit to Porter’s Saloon, which was recently awarded the Best Burger in Pinal County.
If local wine is something you desire, be sure you stop by the recently expanded Bruzzi Vineyard wine tasting room. The new location has added seating capacity, retail options and snack boards from Bella’s Cafe and Marketplace.
Fresh smoked barbecue can be found at Silver King Smokehouse & Saloon; their sauces and menu of beers from across the country will surprise you. Superior also boasts authentic Mexican food at Los Hermanos Restaurant and Jalapenos. If Italian food is your favorite, a must stop is DeMarco’s Italian Restaurant — their sub sandwiches are also great for a picnic or sunset drive.
You can easily spend a day or weekend in Superior. Consider staying at one of our local hotels and then plan on a hearty breakfast to start your day at Buckboard Restaurant or Miner’s on Main. Be sure to visit one of our many great boutiques, art galleries and retail shops that are sure to suit any fancy.
