Things to do

Cultural treats in Queen Creek

Perhaps a culture fix is on the agenda? On Saturdays, vacationers can head to the San Tan Historical Society Museum, a national historic landmark on the site of the old Rittenhouse Elementary School. Maybe it's agritourism that gets you fired up? The 100-acre Queen Creek Olive Mill offers daily tours of the Grand Canyon State's only working olive farm, plus the chance to pick up a few gourmet treats along the way. For something to entertain the kids, the Arizona Renaissance Festival (open President's Day to April 1st) serves up costumed characters, jousting tournaments, circus acts and a traditional feast.

Activities

Fashion and fairways at Queen Creek

Keen to squeeze a little shopping into your stay? Fashionistas in the know are likely to head straight to the Chandler Fashion Center, but if you like a bit more variety, the Queen Creek Marketplace and SanTan Village are all but guaranteed to deliver a healthy dose of retail therapy. After a busy morning trawling for the latest must-haves for your wardrobe, an afternoon on the fairways might be in order. You'll find Queen Creek vacation rentals within swinging distance of several courses, including the Michael Asmundson-designed course at the Las Colinas Golf Club.

Weather

Sunny days in Queen Creek

Queen Creek vacation rentals are a year-round option, although the best deals are often found between May and October. A visit over these summer months does mean that you'll be dealing with temperatures of around 100 degrees, but, as southerners will tell you, it's a dry heat. If it all sounds too much, a visit between November and April might suit you better. You'll pay more for your rental but temperatures drop to around 60 to 70 degrees Ñ more bearable but still sunny enough to enjoy the area's abundance of natural attractions.

Natural features

Explore natural delights near Queen Creek

Afterwards, be sure to stop by the Nature Center for a look at the tortoise habitat and wildlife exhibits.
