Along the famous 98-mile Apache Trail on state Highway 88, imposing saguaros, rugged mountains, desert vistas, and four lakes created by dams on the Salt River give the traveler a glimpse of Arizona's beauty and diversity.

East of town are Queen Creek Bridge and Tunnel. On the eastern side of Queen Creek Canyon are the red-streaked towering cliffs of Apache Leap Mountain where Apaches are said to have jumped rather than surrender to U.S. troops.

Nearby attractions include Magma Copper Company Mine, the state’s largest underground mine; Oak Flats campground; and Boyce Thompson Southwestern Arboretum, with more than 10,000 desert plants. Superior has identified three historic districts and the Superior Historical Society opened the home of Bob Jones (Arizona’s sixth governor) as a museum.
