Pinal Day Tripping Offers Much

by Renée Louzon-Benn, Executive Director, Greater Casa Grande Chamber of Commerce

While some think of the Greater Casa Grande Chamber of Commerce office, 575 N. Marshall St. in Casa Grande as the local business advocacy organization, we are also the designated Arizona Office of Tourism Visitor Information Center for our community.

We have travel information, brochures, and other publications available for most areas, cities, towns, counties, and attractions in Arizona — all free of charge. Planning a vacation? Stop by the Chamber to help you navigate this big, beautiful state we live in.

The great thing about living in Casa Grande is our proximity to so many incredible unique attractions and dining experiences — perfect for planning your local staycations right here in Pinal County. Of course, any road trip must include experiencing our diverse restaurants so plan these stops as part of your Pinal day trips. Check out this Pinal Eats video from Pinal County to inspire your explorations and appetites:

There are hiking venues in both Casa Grande and outlying areas. Drive to Pinal County’s casino in Maricopa or day trip to enjoy Arizona’s lakes and rivers. In Pinal County, there are numerous attractions and sights to see, including but not limited to Aravaipa Canyon, Biosphere II, Boyce Thompson Arboretum, Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, Ira Hayes Memorial Park, Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch, Queen Creek Olive Mill, SkyDive Arizona and SkyVenture AZ, and St. Anthony Greek Orthodox Monastery.

There are many wonderful museums and so much to learn about the people and processes that brought our County to 2021.

It’s gratifying to feel like you’re part of something bigger: part of history in the making, part of learning about and supporting your city, your county, and your state. We encourage you to visit every corner and community in Pinal County.

The Chamber office/Visitor Center is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 520-836-2125, or visit
