Don't just pass through, step out of the car and see what Gila Bend has to offer!
A short drive south of the Phoenix Metro area, Gila Bend is a gateway to another world full of pre-historic cultures, wild west folklore, and early American history specific to Gila Bend. Wander around our little town and you will discover hidden gems like our beloved 9-11 Memorial Park, historic buildings and homes, and in every direction, the beauty of the southwest desert that is Gila Bend.
Gila Bend is blessed to have four Wilderness Areas right in our own backyard that offer something for everyone! Whether you're into extreme outdoor adventures or prefer something a bit more tame, we've got you covered!
Of course, if you'd prefer to hang with us locals, Gila Bend has several annual events and festivities throughout the year. Just pop into our Visitor Center and we will be happy to help you plan your visit here in Gila Bend!
