Welcome to the Old West

Founded in 1866, Florence is one of Arizona's oldest towns. It's part of Pinal County and is brimming with history, culture and plenty of Old West charm. The town is anchored by a historic downtown core, lined with adobe brick buildings, leafy cottonwood trees and plenty of star-spangled banners. Venture further afield and there are cactus-strewn deserts, rumbling rivers and rugged mountains to discover. Whether you're visiting for work, play or a bit of both, Florence vacation rentals put you within striking distance of Pinal County's top attractions.

Desert romance at Florence's Windmill Winery

Craving a high-octane adventure? ATV safaris are a great way to kick up the dust and explore the desert. Planning on getting hitched? With an elegant lake house and a rustic barn dripping in fairy lights, the Windmill Winery is one of Arizona's top wedding destinations. Spacious and luxurious, Florence vacation rentals are a great way to keep your whole wedding party together.

Looking back at Confederate Arizona

Sitting on the corner of Main and Ruggles Streets, the McFarland State Historic Park offers a fascinating glimpse of early America. Visitors are welcome to walk around the Old Courthouse and get a feel for what life was like in Confederate Arizona. Follow up with a visit to the Pinal County Historical Museum, which showcases an eclectic collection of Native American art, antique farm machinery, vintage fire engines and more. If you'd rather relax and enjoy the sunshine, Florence vacation rentals unlock access to a host of luxury executive homes in the heart of Pinal County.

If you've been waiting for an excuse to throw on your cowboy boots, this is it.

A gateway to the Sonoran Desert

Around 60 miles southeast of Phoenix, Florence is an easy drive from the Arizonan capital. It's set along the Gila River and is surrounded by the vast Sonoran Desert and the San Tan Mountains. Nature buffs will jump at the chance to explore the Tonto National Forest. It covers a 3-million-acre footprint and features a unique landscape of Saguaro cactus-studded deserts, lush pine forests, rugged mountains and shimmering lakes. The forest is home to some of Arizona's wilder inhabitants so wising up on bear safety is a must.
