Explore Arizona’s White Mountains and Apache County when you fly to a jet charter airport in Springerville, Arizona.
Tucked away in the northeastern corner of the state, Springerville was established in 1879 in the heart of the growing American southwest. Located only a few short miles from the New Mexico border, Springerville grew around founder Henry Springer’s trading post located 7,000 feet above sea level before being incorporated in 1948.
Along with its neighbor Eagar, the two communities comprise Arizona’s Round Valley Region. Here, amongst the White Mountains, Springerville shines as a true four-season playground. And, as a destination not often visited by tourists outside of Arizona and New Mexico, you’re sure to find your own personal slice of outdoor haven waiting among the desert grass and sagebrush. In the summer, Springerville comes alive with gorgeous scenery, great fishing and incredible hiking trails. And, given its altitude, snowy winters mean best-in-state skiing and cross-country adventure at the Sunrise Park Resort.
A favorite for locals and tourists alike, start your journey at the White House Ruins. Here, you’ll see where the Anasazis lived before their sudden disappearance 800 years ago. Nearby, you will also find the Antelope House Ruin, another Anasazi home left abandoned by an unknown force that drove the Anasazi from home, never to return. Finally, stop by the Sliding Rock Ruin to complete your Anasazi history tour. A local guide can help you learn more about the people that once called this beautiful valley home as you explore these mystifying ruins.
