Apache Junction Arizona ranked #4 as one of the best affordable places to retire as listed in Business Week magazine. The article was in the Friday July 10, 2009 issue. Locations were ranked primarily on relative cost of living. Other factors also included number of sunny days, the home price forecast for 2010, and the number of nearby amenities including golf courses, hospitals, theaters, museums, religious institutions, shopping centers and airports.
Apache Junction came in #4 with an average of 295 sunny days per year. Population was quoted as a year round number of 42,000 that swells to 77,000 during the winter season. Being close to a number of golf courses and the fact the area promotes retirement activities helped cement it’s position.
With Gold Canyon just to the east of Apache Junction, it also stands to benefit from this nationally promoted ranking.
