Once you find your ideal Strawberry vacation rental, you’ll find landmarks both natural and historic waiting to be discovered.

An outdoor playground on Strawberry’s doorstep

Arizona is known for its dramatic landscape, and the area around Strawberry might well be considered the cream of the crop. The lush scenery of the Mogollon Rim offers the perfect backdrop for birdwatching, horseback riding along the vast network of trails that wind through pine forests, and fishing and kayaking in Stoneman and Green Valley Lakes. Be sure to stop by the Tonto Natural Bridge, the world’s largest travertine bridge and a spot that combines both history and scenery. If you prefer to take things a little easier, the Rim Road and Woods Canyon Lake Loop are ideal for enjoying scenic drives.

Peek into Strawberry’s past

While Strawberry is perhaps best known as a place to slow down and escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, there are still several spots that should feature on your must-see list. The Strawberry Schoolhouse built from logs in 1885 is one such attraction, as is the Pine-Strawberry Museum near Pine’s Cultural Hall. You might also like to peek even further into the past, as far back as AD 1000, at the Shoofly Indian Ruins, or enjoy an afternoon at the Ranch at Fossil Creek, where the family-friendly activities include llama trekking and cheese-making and felting classes.

Enjoy Strawberry all year round

There really isn’t a bad time to visit Strawberry. although if you’re something of a sun-worshipper, the nicest of the summer weather can be enjoyed in June through September. If you’re looking for the best of both world – decent temperatures and less chance of rain – the months of April and October are likely your best bet for a trip to this tiny Arizona community. Strawberry vacation rentals are available throughout the year, so whether you’re hankering after sunny days or want to admire the area’s fall colors, you’ll find a perfect spot to call home during your stay.

Lose yourself in Strawberry’s landscape

The landscape surrounding Strawberry plays host to a wide variety of natural features. A hike along the winding Verde River will prove well worth the effort when you reach the Verde Hot Spring, a set of two pools of water built into the mountain side. Natural springs, as well as an abundance of wildlife, can be found at Fossil Creek, one of Arizona’s two designated “Wild and Scenic” rivers. Before returning to your Strawberry vacation rental, be sure to head back up the rim to check out Arizona’s spectacular night sky. You’ll find the unblemished mountain atmosphere reveals a sweeping array of planets, constellations, and glittering stars.
