Chandler Property Owners Find Interesting Day Trips Near Home

Chandler residents will discover that a number of unique and entertaining day trips are just hours away. Whether you long for outdoor spender or indoor fun, you can find great places to visit for a weekend or just an afternoon.

Explore the Great Outdoors just a Few Hours from Chandler

Picacho Peak: This repetitively-named state park (“picacho” means “peak” in Spanish) offers a gorgeous location with multiple trails. One of them, Hunter Trail, is a difficult hike, but ends at the top of the peak.

Less than 60 miles from Chandler, this park is an easy drive south. Visitors enjoy the spring wildflowers every year, which include the vibrant Mexican gold poppy, as well as brittlebush, creosote, Coulter’s lupine and globemallow.

Ironwood National Forest Monument: Just a few miles past Picacho Park on Interstate 10, you can explore this expansive, 129,000-acre desert “showcase.” Only about two hours from Chandler, you can see lots of Sonoran Desert wildlife and flora.

Visitors here can camp, ride horses, hike, visit archeological or historic sites, or just relax and soak up the unique atmosphere. Be aware that camping is primitive in this area, and there are no stores or first aid opportunities within the park.

Take the Learning Indoors near Your Chandler Home

Spend a day on a tour of Chandler, AZ and get to know the town you live in. You can start at Wonderful Wanda’s on Chandler Blvd. for breakfast where you can pick up a burrito, omelet or sandwich for a great price.

After a filling breakfast, you can move on to the Chandler Museum where visitors can view the Chandler Sports Hall of Fame, as well as exhibits about the Morrison Grocery Store, San Marcos Hotel, the Hohokam tribe and the early history of the city of Chandler. Plan ahead and you can be sure to catch one of the numerous events the museum hosts each month.

After catching up on your city’s history, you can grab a late lunch at Espos Restarant. This family owned and operated joint offers a full menu that is made while you wait. The line in this popular eatery can get pretty long during lunch and dinner rush times, so plan accordingly.

Last stop is the Arizona Railway Museum so all aboard! This museum offers engines, equipment and cars from many of the great railroad companies of the last two centuries. Access to the yard is free, but you can enjoy a personal tour that includes the internal view of many of these awesome artifacts.
