Homes for Sale in Superior, AZ by Price

Small-Town Charm Surrounded by Breathtaking Landscapes

Located just 70 miles from Downtown Phoenix and the same distance north of Tucson at the base of Apache Leap Mountain, Superior, AZ is a world of breathtaking desert beauty and small-town charm. Surrounded by the picturesque Tonto National Forest and nestled into rocky foothills and climbing mountain slopes, Superior is a truly amazing place for photographers, outdoor lovers, and those seeking a quiet respite within a decent drive of big-city amenities.

What makes Superior truly unique, however, is its geographic location along the "division line" of Arizona's three main geophysical features—which means you can travel less than fifteen miles to the west and find yourself in the Arizona-Sonoran desert, fifteen miles south and dive into the mineral-rich valleys and plateaus of Central Arizona, and fifteen miles east and immerse yourself in the gateway to Arizona's majestic mountain ranges, complete with waterfalls and snow in the winter.
