Destination guide

Canyon-side perfection in Show Low

This chilled Arizona mountain town has all the pleasures of the state’s back country away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. Sitting 6,000 feet above the desert plains, Show Low makes a cool change from the Phoenix oven. Show Low vacation rentals provide you with the base camp, but the adventures are yours to tailor. This is Mogollon Rim country, full of natural spectacle, trails to trek down, lakes to laze by, and casinos to bet in. Canyon-side condos offer pin-drop perfect seclusion, while in town, great-value properties will leave you plenty of cash to stack up those chips.

Things to do

Casinos and bright lights in Show Low

With the many Show Low vacation rentals in town, you’ll find there’s plenty on offer here, too. The Show Low Museum dishes the lowdown on the city’s varied history, including the tale of the late-night, high-stakes card game that gave the place its name. Head just a few miles south and you can chance your hand at the Hon-Dah Casino. Its 800 slots and live blackjack and poker will keep the buzz going for you and your buds 24/7 (or until you’re down to your last dime).


The all-year highs of Show Low

The call of the great outdoors is strong here, whether you’re sharing your Show Low vacation rentals with friends or family. As well as adrenaline-pumping trekking, biking, boating, and off-roading, Show Low has its calmer side, too. The thwack of the nine iron at the championship Silver Creek Golf Club is made all the sweeter by the affordability of this course. Come winter time, the canyons transform into a winter-sports paradise. Snow-boarders and skiers chase the thrills in the Sunrise Park Ski Area, while frosty breath and frozen stillness await those who head out snow-trekking in Show Low’s wild surrounds.


Sun and snow aplenty in Show Low

In Show Low, you really do get the best that the Arizona climate has to offer. It’s all thanks to the 6,000 feet of elevation here. Summers are pleasantly warm, occasionally hot, but rarely too much. That means plenty of dry sunny days that are perfect for exploring the wilds or for family-friendly fun and games. Spring is when the mountain meadows shimmer with color. At the other side of the year, the high elevation also means snow often comes, lasting from November through April, so be sure to dust off those snow-shoes.

Natural features

Show Low showcases natural splendor and majestic wildlife

This part of Eastern Arizona may be less well-known than other parts of the state, but Mother Nature has certainly been kind. The rugged ridges and cliffs of the White Mountains climb up to 11,400 feet high atop Mount Baldy. And it’s not all sheer rock and sun-warmed canyons. The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest has vast stands of pine forest for visitors to explore. Many Show Low mountain lodges will tantalize you with the brisk clean scent of ponderosa pines. Head here in winter and you may even catch a bald eagle soaring against the snowy backdrops.
