Arizona 373 is a short route that travels to the mountain hamlet of Greer. Greer is a popular summertime destination for those escaping the heat of central and southern Arizona.

Arizona 373 was added to the state highway system in 1962. The route number is derived from Arizona 73, which used to continue between McNary and Eagar until the road was renumbered to Arizona 260.
