Travel Times From Maricopa to Phoenix and Other Arizona Cities

How Long Does It Take to Drive From Maricopa to...?

Harrah's Ak-Chin Casino

Maricopa  is a city in Pinal County, southwest of Phoenix. It isn't far from Chandler, and many people who live in Maricopa work and play in Chandler, Tempe and Phoenix. The following chart represents the distance from Maricopa, 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. Obviously, I had to pick one point in each location in order to map it. Typically, I chose the City Hall, Chamber of Commerce, airport or some other official central place. 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. Speed limits vary from 55 mph to 75 mph on highways here. 

The times are just estimates. You'll find that the online mapping services that I used to create these numbers often indicate that you'll get there in roughly 'a mile per minute'. I don't usually find that to be true. If I am driving a combination of highways and city streets, I usually leave an hour for every 50 miles, and longer if it is a major event where I expect traffic or parking problems.

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.
