Whether it’s the welcoming weather or an abundance of activities that compel you to head for the

hills, Payson and Rim Country offers visitors a cool time in a beautiful setting only less than two hours from the Valley.

The rim itself begins just east of the New Mexico border and stretches two thirds of the way across Arizona; the area we refer to as the Rim includes Payson and its smaller neighbors, the communities of Pine, Strawberry, and Christopher Creek.

While decidedly not cosmopolitan – and with an entirely different ambiance than Arizona’s other weekend getaways, Sedona and Prescott – the Payson/Pine/Strawberry area is laid-back, picturesque, and chock-full of ways to enjoy the outdoors.
