Drivers often stop at the town on their way to the Grand Canyon from either Williams or Flagstaff, as it is approximately at the halfway point.
Valle is not shown on the Rand McNally Road Atlas annual series. The town sits to the west of the highway intersections, with some streets to the east of US 180. The area is subdivided by roads for a planned community in which 1-acre (4,000 m2) lots were sold during the early 1960s. These roads are all dirt with the exception of the two main highways (US 180 and AZ 64). With the exception of a few property owners who have set up camp on their land, the area has not been developed.
Valle maintains no website. It has two main gas stations, several gift shops, and a small post office.
