Pinal County, AZ is #1 in job growth for the nation, according to Money Magazine.
You never heard of Pinal County, AZ? Think again. You likely know something about Pinal County without having learned the name. It's the county just north of Tucson, and it's home to:
- 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.
Pinal County has an Open Space & Trails Master Plan. Check it out. Approximately 50% of the county is comprised of:
- State Trust Lands
- National Forest
- State & County Parks
- Wilderness Area
Combine all that recreational potential with the fact that Money Magazine rates Pinal County #1 in job growth for the nation, and you just might want to dig a little deeper. Call me. I'm never too busy to talk with you.
