Day Trips

Yuma serves as the hub city for many communities and attractions around this corner of the Great Southwest. With Yuma at the center of your trip, there are many options for fun day trips around the Yuma area! Explore Old West abandoned ghost towns and mines, head out on adventures along the Colorado River or in the desert, get to know the other friendly towns around Yuma, or make a run for the border and get to know our neighbors to the south in Mexico! Mexico is a very do-able day trip, provided you have your passport. Going to either of the two nearby ports of entry can gain you access to a whole other country, all in time to be back in Yuma for dinner! With so much to discover, plan to stay a little longer in Yuma. Take some day trips, and take in more fun!

Going to Mexico
