The Show Low Regional Airport has become the premier air transportation facility in the White Mountains.  Great Lakes Airlines is located in the center of the terminal building offering scheduled airline service between Show Low, Phoenix, Farmington and Denver seven days per week with roundtrip flights daily.

According to the legend, the city was named after a marathon poker game between C.E. Cooley and Marion Clark, they decided there was not enough room for both of them in their settlement. The two men agreed to let a game of cards decide who was to move. According to the story, Clark said, "If you can show low, you win." Cooley turned up the deuce of clubs and replied, "Show low it is." The stakes were a 100,000 acre ranch. Show Low's main street is named "Deuce of Clubs" in remembrance.  A card game is still used to decide the winner of a tied election.

You can enjoy a monument depicting the infamous card game located on the Deuce of Clubs in Festival Marketplace.
