Apache Junction is small community east of Mesa that sprang up as a natural progression, of its location at the junction of the Apache Trail and the main highway between Phoenix and Superior. Nestled against the Superstition Mountain rising up majestically some 3,000 feet above the desert floor, it is a favorite winter home of more than 35,000 winter visitors each year, which brings the towns total population to 77,000. Winter visitors are welcomed each year by the local population, who understand the contribution to their town by these season residents.
Winter visitors come for the warm weather, hospitable locals and the allure of the areas past. It is a past that fascinates those who come simply for the winter or who move permanently to the area. Locals pride themselves as amateur historians and are ever ready to share a story or two with anyone willing to listen. The most famous legend of the area is of the Lost Dutchman Mine. It has been drawing adventurous treasure hunters for more than 100 years. It is but one story of lost treasure, and hardly the only thing that has brought visitors to Apache Junction.
