Young Arizona

Visitor's Information for Young and Pleasant Valley, AZ

Home Page

Welcome To YoungAZ.com

Young, Arizona is located in the heart of Pleasant Valley and Gila County, about 120 miles northeast of Phoenix.  Arizona's best kept secret.  Untouched and unspoiled.  The true wild, wild west.

Step back in time.  Electricity didn't arrive until 1965 and there was no cellular service until 2009. Even today, there are no fast food restaurants or well known chain stores.  Progress in Pleasant Valley moves very slowly.

There are no strangers in Young, only welcomed guests.  As you travel through town, prepare to be greeted often by a pleasant wave and a friendly smile.

Enjoy a two and one-half hour drive from the Phoenix/Mesa area or fly in to the local airport affectionately known as "Young International Airport".  Of course, you won't find any jet planes landing here, the pace of life is just too slow!

Once you arrive, be sure to relax and enjoy a bite to eat.  Plan to stay over?  Check in at the local motel or rent a cabin in the woods. 

We'd love to meet you, so please do plan to visit soon. In the meantime, enjoy browsing our website. It's our home on the net and we've opened our doors to you!
