So much culture, history, and natural beauty in one stop. I loved looking at the Apache artifacts and reading about their culture. This is such a unique place and it is well preserved. Make sure you stop in at the resteraunt. It's worth it!

All beautiful places although Show Low is highly urbanized. Fort Apache Cultural Center is nicely done, and the Fort buildings area is a nice walking area (although easily accessed via auto).
