THINGS TO DO:
If you and your family love outdoor fun, then expect to be busy. For starters, you can get some exercise and enjoy that fresh air at Pioneer Park, which is just 14 minutes away.

The park is a great place to chill out and a nice place to watch the sunset.
When you’re ready for a much livelier activity like pumpkin-picking, you can head to the Willis Farm. This farm comes to life in the fall, when locals and visitors gather to load up on pumpkins and enjoy some fun fall activities as well. The farm grows and sells pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, many of which have odd shapes and funny names. Whether you’re looking for jack-o-lantern pumpkins, ones for pumpkin pie, or just autumn decorations for your home and garden, you’ll find what you’re looking for here. They also have great activities like an air-powered pumpkin launcher and a haunted corn maze that kids and kids-at-heart alike will enjoy.
If soaking in nature’s beauty is your cup of tea, you’ll be delighted to know that the property is surrounded by different national forests. The popular and nearest one is the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, which is just 58 minutes away from the property.
