Things To Do
It’s been designated the World’s Sunniest City by Guinness World Records! Use those sunny days for outdoor adventures in all the wide-open space around Yuma. The Colorado River and lakes make for fun tubing, canoeing and boating. Imperial Sand Dunes, the Sonoran desert, and three national wildlife refuges offer great off-roading, hiking, biking and more. Or get your Vitamin D closer to town at one of almost a dozen area golf courses or by enjoying the miles of scenic pathways which edge the river near downtown.
Next, explore the city’s vibrant arts and culture scene, or hit up unique shopping options. There are plenty of entertainment and gaming choices to fill your days and nights. Don’t miss Yuma’s historical sites that are living legends, and take time to learn about how the native peoples came together at The Crossing. Families love all the kid-friendly activities Yuma has to offer, and visitors of all kinds go loco for experiencing authentic Mexican culture, whether in Yuma itself or on a daytrip down to Mexico.
