Nearby Attractions/City

Apache Station Wildlife Viewing Area

The Apache Station Wildlife Area, located next to Apache Generating Station near Cochise, is a primary winter roosting location for sandhill cranes. The station supplies water for the wildlife area from an onsite well system, supplemented by rainfall. The station keeps at least 40 acres of land inundated with water during the sandhill crane wintering season, which runs from late October until early March

The Wildlife Area is populated by mammals including javelina, bobcat and deer. Birds of prey include the Northern harrier, red-tailed hawk, ferruginous hawk, bald eagle and golden eagle. Wading birds and waterfowl are present year-round, although numbers reach their peak in the winter months. Frequently seen waterfowl include the snow goose, Northern shoveler, mallard, Northern pintail, and American widgeon.

Willcox Wineries

People often ask, why is this area so good for growing wine grapes and making wine? Three things: Elevation, climate, and soil. Put all together, it means the wines produced in the Willcox region carry their own unique Arizona signature and stand among the great wines made anywhere in the world. Summer days are warm and nights are cool, and that wide shift in daily temperatures imparts flavor to the grapes. Then the Arizona summer/fall monsoons introduce a unique twist to the growing season. And finally, the soils are generally rich alluvial and volcanic mixtures from the surrounding mountains. Try a glass yourself, you won’t be disappointed.

Sunsites

Sunsites is an attractive community that lies in the picturesque Sulphur Springs Valley, set against a verdant backdrop of apple, peach, pecan, pistachio orchards and grape vines. Almost anything grows in this favorable climate. Farm produce includes alfalfa, corn, chili peppers, pinto beans, and wheat. Bask in the warm hospitality of a local bed and breakfast to extend your time in this pleasant valley. Just to the west of town, the granite peaks of Cochise Stronghold – once refuge of the great Apache chief Cochise – holds phenomenal high-desert hiking trails. 

Pearce

Pearce is home to the now-shuttered Commonwealth Mine, one of the state’s major silver producers from 1895 to 1942. But don’t pass it by – this ghost town is home to two properties in the National Register of Historic Places, the Old Pearce General Store (1896) and Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church (circa 1916). Several other historic adobe and frame structures – some intact, some in ruins – including an old cemetery that are scattered throughout town. It just takes a bit of imagination to picture what the town looked like in its heyday.
