Apache Junction is a city in the East Valley, in the southeast part of the Greater Phoenix area. It is probably most visited by visitors driving the Apache Trail and in the winter when the Arizona Renaissance Festival takes place nearby. Apache Junction is located in both Maricopa and Pinal Counties. The following chart represents the distance from Apache Junction, Arizona to the indicated city, and the time it takes to drive there.

The purpose of this chart is to give an estimation, not an exact time or distance. For each city, an official destination point such as City Hall, Chamber of Commerce, or an airport was used for mileage calculations. You may be starting or ending at some other point, so please keep that in mind. Likewise, as far as the times from one point to another are concerned, people drive differently, during different times of the day and week, and road conditions and restrictions happen. Also, speed limits vary from 55 mph to 75 mph on highways. 

The times are just estimates. You'll find that the online mapping services used to create these numbers often indicate that you'll get there in roughly 'a mile per minute', though this is not accurate. When driving a combination of highways and city streets, it's wise to allocate an hour for every 50 miles, and longer if it is a major event where traffic or parking problems are expected.

The first set of cities, shown as white in the table, are in Maricopa County. The second set of cities, shown in light gray in the table, are in Pinal County and are considered part of the Greater Phoenix area. The third set of cities, shown in darker gray, are major destinations elsewhere in the State of Arizona. The last set of places, in the darkest gray, are common driving destinations outside Arizona.
