Casa Grande sounds like a magnificent place, doesn't it? That's because it is. Sitting at basically the halfway point between Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona, this town—which takes its name from the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument—boomed as a mining town in the late 1800s, as it was geographically vital for its position along the Southern Pacific Railroad. Today, the town features a pleasing blend of Old West charm and modern excitement, and you'll want to stay in Casa Grande hotels to experience it all.
Your best option for flights to town is probably to book one into Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. The airfield is only 45 miles away, and you can easily reach most hotels in Casa Grande by rental car, taxi, or private shuttle. If you don't wind up renting a car at the airport, you should rent a car in Casa Grande, as it's the easiest way to get around the area.
Start your trip in Casa Grande by checking out the historic Southern Pacific Railroad Depot, which dates back to 1925, and shopping at the Promenade at Casa Grande, a cool open-air shopping center. If you want a thrill, skydiving facilities and gun shooting ranges are both available here, or you could enjoy a relaxing round of golf instead. Peart Park is a nice spot to relax and people-watch, and there are plenty of eateries around East Cottonwood Lane if you get hungry. Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, which details the agricultural community of the Ancient Sonoran Desert People, is a must-visit. Also, if you wish to have more fun, know Phoenix—Arizona's largest city—is within striking range; book one of the amazing Phoenix resorts before you go.
