Your home away from home awaits-
In Safford, the same modest cafés have been churning out excellent, home-style Mexican food for decades. If you need a surefire conversation starter, ask a local to name their favorite haunt and then get ready to do some mouthwatering research.
Once you’ve filled your belly, there are lots of ways to work off the calories in this high-desert hometown. From mid-May through October, you can take a guided tour to Mount Graham International Observatory on the Pinaleno Mountains’ highest point. At Gila Box Riparian National Conservation Area, Bonita Creek is home to frogs, javelinas, black bears, and more than 140 birds – bring your binoculars and a picnic lunch! And, surprise, you can also reserve a float trip on the Gila River, fish at Riggs Lake, and take a dip in the natural mineral springs of Roper Lake State Park. Stay awhile.
