Enjoy Cool, Crisp Water At What Was Once An Apple Orchard In Arizona

Did you know one of the most popular swimming holes in Arizona started off as something entirely different? Slide Rock State Park, beloved for its 80-foot-long natural waterslide, was originally an apple orchard and homestead built in the early 1900s. You can still see the original farmland and several historic cabins, plus (of course) try your hand at plunging down the slide.

Visit the Slide Rock State Park website or Facebook page for more information, such as current hours and entrance fees.
