Halfway between Phoenix and San Diego and just 20 minutes from Mexico is the city of Yuma. A temperate winter climate makes this one of the most popular destinations in the Southwest. This is the place to be for outdoor activities and entertainment.

With over a dozen golf courses and the Colorado River running through town, Yuma has a host of local attractions for recreation. Several area lakes offer fishing and boating opportunities. Adair Park is located 16 miles northeast of town on Highway 95. Included in the park’s 660 acres are nine rifle, pistol and archery ranges, a baseball diamond, a radio-control model airplane strip and picnic areas. At Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park, see where, between 1876 and 1909, this penitentiary housed many of Arizona’s most dangerous and notorious criminals. The Cocopah Indian Museum, south on Highway 95, gives a glimpse of Native American life in this area.

One of only two places west of the Mississippi River to receive designation as a National Heritage Area, Yuma is proud of its history. Yuma became a critical part of the southern travel route during the migration from the east to west coast. The Yuma Crossing on the Colorado River was the narrowest and therefore safest place to cross. The Ocean-to-Ocean bridge, completed in 1915, stands as a monument to that crossing.
