Things to Do in Pinetop-Lakeside With Kids. Pinetop-Lakeside is a popular getaway spot in Arizona and we love these two little side-by-side towns! Just 3 hours from Phoenix can bring you cooler temps, pine trees, and some super fun family activities and restaurants. Show Low is also nearby, and offers some great activities, or you can travel about 40 minutes further east to Greer. This area of Arizona is beautiful any time of the year!
