Why wouldn’t you want to try a new adventure this winter? Ditch the slope or the beach and head for the desert. Yuma, a true oasis in the desert, is located at the extreme southwest corner of Arizona. The weather is mild and dry. The city averages 242 sunny days per year. Explore the historic and wildlife areas – with dunes that reach 300 feet – and enjoy the lively riverfront as well as the many parks and recreation areas. Bonus: The city is close to historic ghost mining towns.
