Graham County is “Life the Way It Ought to Be” in this special region of Arizona. Lying gently in the shadow of the 10,720-foot Mount Graham of the Pinaleno Mountain Range, the communities of Safford, Thatcher and Pima house some of the richest treasures in the southwestern United States. An expansive 4 million acres of National Forest and Protected Wilderness Areas offer 4,500 square miles to stretch and explore.

The small-town friendliness will embrace you as you discover the unique and high-quality lifestyle that offers a wide variety of activities that include hiking, cycling, birding, rock hounding, fishing, floating the Gila River, annual events, and investigating the history of the pioneers by day. In the evening, savor local cuisine from the internationally known Salsa Trail. Then attend a seasonal performance at the David M. Player Center for the Arts or at the Eastern Arizona College Fine Arts Auditorium, to close your day with world-class productions in music or theater.
