A singular mash-up of Victorian and Western history, Taylor is a place where frontier hospitality makes visitors feels at home.
Along with its sister community of Snowflake, this Arizona town is nestled in the Silver Creek Valley of the White Mountains. Home to friendly modern-day ranchers and descendants of Mormon pioneers, Taylor is postcard-pretty. The sweetly manicured buildings have been lovingly preserved by townspeople, who double as tour guides for visitors. The Taylor Historic Home Tour takes in five sites, including a log cabin where a midwife birthed more than 1,400 babies.
Should you find yourself in Taylor over Labor Day weekend, the Sweet Corn Festival celebrates the town’s main crop with a parade, Wild West barbecue, kid’s rodeo, musical performances, and hayrides. If it’s outdoor recreation you seek, Taylor offers golf, fishing for Apache trout at Silver Creek Hatchery, canoeing and kayaking at nearby Fool Hollow Lake, and wildlife viewing. Just ask those friendly locals for the best places to spot pronghorn antelope or elk.Visit City Site
