In 1938 Surprise, AZ consisted of just one square mile of farmland. Legend has it that town founder, Flora Mae Statler, exclaimed, “I would be surprised if the town ever amounted to much.” Today, just a 45-minute drive to downtown Phoenix and surrounded by four regional parks, several lakes and the Sonoran desert, Surprise is a top tourist destination.
Adrenaline junkies and naturalists alike will be drawn to Surprise for its proximity to one of the most significant prehistoric sites in the American Southwest and the state’s largest parks, Agua Fria National Monument and Tonto National Forest, respectively. Here you’ll enjoy exploring cultural sites and diverse geologic landscapes, hunting, viewing wildlife, fishing, biking, climbing or horseback riding.
Drive less than an hour to Agua Fria National Monument to see a dormant volcano, early rock deposits, lava plateaus and semi-desert landscapes. White Tank Mountain Regional Park is a favorite spot for locals -- a great place to relax, hike or bike while surrounded by magnificent mountain vistas.
