Yuma Travel Guide

In Southwest Arizona, overlooking the Colorado river, Yuma awaits. This dusty desert town in the heart of the Great West is a travel destination that offers something for everyone -- with national parks and beatiful scenery, an abandoned prison complex and great local culture to name but a few highlights.

Things to Do in Yuma

One of the best things to do in Yuma is to visit the Yuma Territorial Prison State Park, a Wild West style prison that is seemingly frozen in time and offers tours that lead visitors through the cells and the prison’s gruesome history. Yuma is surrounded by open spaces that offer great hiking trails, even for beginners. Some routes to consider include the Painted Desert Trail at the Imperial National Wildlife Refuge, or trekking through Palm Canyon.

Best Time to Visit Yuma

Owing to its desert location, Yuma can get very hot. As such the best times to visit are in the spring or fall.
