Tens of thousands of raw troops underwent rigorous training during World War II at Yuma Proving Ground's Camp Laguna before deploying to combat fronts around the world. The training was tough and everyone lived in tents, with no electricity or air conditioning. On this tour, attendees will visit actual sites that remain today from the sprawling camp.  Tour attendees must be mobile and in good physical condition, as walking over uneven desert terrain is required.  Everyone must wear close-toed shoes, hiking boots are suggested.  Tour departs from the Yuma Visitor Information Center.  Purchase tickets here.

The holidays were always a very special time for The King of Rock n' Roll. For Elvis, the holidays meant a time of sharing with friends, family, and even complete strangers!  No expense was spared when it came to decorating Graceland for Christmas and Elvis took the same approach when it came time to record holiday music. During his lifetime, he released three albums of songs to celebrate the season, which have since been re-packaged and re-configured many different ways.  This heart-warming show In the Yuma Historic Theatre features some of The King's best loved holiday favorites mixed in with a healthy dose of top hits from throughout his career.  Call 928-373-5202 for more information.
