Some of these interesting things include Columbia University's Biosphere 2, Peppersauce Canyon, the Arcadia Ranch Museum for local artifacts plus several Mexican restaurants. This town is definitely worth a trip. Take Oracle Road north to the fork at Oracle Junction, then turn right on AZ Highway 77.
