What to do:
“Adventure, Elevated” you can only find in Superior. This town only 1 hour away from Phoenix and 2 hrs from Tucson! Where to start? Book an appointment to browse through local artists’ pieces inspired by the town at The Kay Gallery. Mask up and find an electric selection of antiques at Picket Post Antiques. For some more shopping, Rose’s Roses also acts as a collective, with (12) 12x8 stores filled with local artisan creations, handcrafted jewelry, and repurposed furniture all at amazing prices. Go for a morning or sunset hike at Picket Post Mountain Trailhead or opt-in for a relaxing stroll at the Boyce Arboretum.
Where to eat:
A great place to stop for breakfast or lunch, Buckboard City Cafe, also hosts the World’s Smallest Museum on site! (Biscuits and gravy are the way to go.) There is so much more than meets the eye at Felicia’s Ice Cream Shop. This is definitely the place in town to stop to satisfy your sweet tooth. But, you’ll be surprised to find that Felicia’s also offers specialty menu items like shrimp cocktails, street tacos, and posole.
