Visit Yuma's new 2019-2020 Visitors Guide available now

Yuma, Ariz. — The new 2019-2020 official Yuma Visitors Guide has been released and is now available at the Visitor Information Center. Every year, the Visitors Guide provides more than 50,000 visitors, locals and newcomers to Yuma with up to date information on what to see and do around town. The Visitors Guide is published by Visit Yuma and this year, it celebrates the arts in Yuma.

Featuring a cover photo of the Flor de Desierto mural on the side of the Del Sol grocery store at 4th Avenue and 3rd Street, the Visitors Guide highlights some of the many murals around town. Visual art groups, art classes, the local jazz scene, youth ballet and the Yuma Orchestra Association all enjoy write-ups about their events and offerings. The performing arts and entertainment venues join the lists of choices for visitors and residents to go to. And of course, buying unique or artisan gifts and enjoying fine food and drink go hand in hand with getting into the arts in Yuma. 

The 96-page visitors guide covers everything visitors need to know about Yuma, from military tours, to outdoor adventure, to farm tours and dinners. Restaurants, lodging and shopping are important sections in the guide, as are the events and calendar sections, and the entertainment, activities and attractions pages. Beautiful photography, maps and contact information accompany listings of Visit Yuma members' businesses and organizations. Information is included, too, on Visit Yuma's new Ag to Art Market, specialty tours and specialty dinners.
