  • Bioshpere 2, the 3.5 acre glass-enclosed science research center in Oracle, AZ
  • Picacho Peak, site of the westerly-most battle of the Civil War back in 1862.  The battle is re-enacted at Picacho Peak State Park every year in March.
  • Copper Creek, one of twenty ghost towns scattered around Pinal County that you can visit. 
  • The Florence Coke Ovens.  Florence is the county seat.  The coke ovens have nothing to do with carbonated beverage or illegal drugs.

  • State Trust Lands
