FUN! FUN! FUN! FUN! Educational. Welcoming. Friendly. Knowledgeable. Enthusiastic. I loved the stories behind the wines. And the staff? SERIOUSLY down to earth, funky, friendly, warm. Just makes your heart happy. Wines were very interesting. Didn't try the food, but it looked great. A happy stop on our way to Sedona!

Small museum on the main road in Clarkdale, near Jerome. Too much info to absorb on one visit. Fascinating story of Trench Art from World Wars. Want to revisit.

The Blazin' M Ranch dinner/show was a highlight of our RV Group's rally in the Verde Valley. The tractor-pull, gun range, and the wood carving dioramas were all great pre-dinner experiences.
The BBQ dinner served on our tin plate, as we walked by the Conestoga wagons, was delicious... especially the prickly pear coleslaw.
The music show was all country and well done. We laughed a lot and joined in on the songs. The Ghost Rider song as the grand finale was superb!
Do not miss this fun evening if you are in the Cottonwood area.

Tuzigoot National Monument

Built on the top of a hill, these are the ruins of a village from 1100 A.D. that once consisted of approximately 110 rooms.

Reviewed By Valerie G

Located on the outskirts of the charming town of Cottonwood. We have to thank our server at the Arizona Stronghold winery in town for suggesting that if we found Montezuma's Castle a fascinating archeological site, we must visit Tuzigoot. She was right, and we're glad we did. The museum holds numerous artifacts uncovered on site. They really provide you with an understanding of the daily life of these now long disappeared peoples. The most fascinating for me were the textiles. Thousands of year old fragments of both tie dyed and intricately woven fabrics. To see them and watch the accompanying video/audio tape informing us about their rarity (in the case of the tie dyed piece) was jaw dropping.
The site itself, located at the top of a hill, offers a broad view of the surrounding valley. The main building atop the hill and the numerous ones descending the slope, provide a fascinating glimpse into this lost culture. Had it not been so cold at the top of the hill last Sunday morning, when we visited, we might have lingered to listen to the Ranger who offered to answer any questions we had. I regret now that we missed his stories that others report to have enjoyed. Kudos to all Rangers and guides who impart their knowledge and wisdom to others.

Jerome State Historic Park

The Douglas Mansion has been an eye-catching landmark in Jerome since 1916, when James S. Douglas built it on the hill just above his Little Daisy Mine. This former home is now a museum devoted to the history of the Jerome area and the Douglas family. The museum features photographs, artifacts and minerals in addition to a video presentation and a 3-D model of the town with its underground mines. There are more displays outside along with a picnic area offering a beautiful panoramic view of the Verde Valley.

Reviewed By ArizonaJIMandJILL - Arizona

This is a must stop on your way up the hill to Jerome. The 25 minute move gives you an excellent overview of Jerome's history. Plus, this home (The Douglas Mansion) is a unique experience in and of itself when you realize the era of when a family lived in this lovely home. The view is spectacular as well!.

My husband and I had a blast on this guided bike tour. We both love road biking but he is an excellent rider and I am okay. When we visit new areas we often rent bikes on our own and figure out routes. In Sedona...MoreAwesome! Just what I like to hear ! My goal as a bike tour owner/operator is to make sure you enjoy yourself. If you're working too hard you may not be having fun. I can accommodate you! Come back and ride with us again!

I went specifically for a trail ride (horseback) but my friend lives in the area and holds an annual Arizona State Parks pass. We also walked around one of the fishing ponds. We saw a bald eagle catch it's lunch, a blue heron, and lots of other beautiful birds. It's very well maintained and the the gate attendant very friendly and informative.

Despite the hype, there is really not much to see. We did walk around the old town and admit that some of the architecture was interesting. We go into several of the shops but they were nothing to write home about. There are some restaurants in the old town area.

Larry's Antiques & Things

Larry's is the biggest, best and most unique antique store you'll ever find! "From tea cups to tractors", we have two acres of odd, unique and hard to find items. We love antique farming equipment, wagons, mining cars, gas pumps, signs, tools, car parts, furniture, lighting fixtures, collectables, house wares and more. At Larry's Antiques we buy, sell, trade and consign.

Reviewed By Mike H - Phoenix, Arizona

When we set up our b and b 12 years ago we had shopped at Larry's and found many items. Now that we have sold the property, we went back just for fun. This place is amazing with the different items that you can find here. Accents or collectables and in some cases items that need a lot of TLC to restore. You never know what you will find. That is part of the fun.

Historic Road - US Route 89A

One of only three historic Arizona roads recognized by the State of Arizona, Centered in Clarkdale. US Route 89A is plaqued with a historic 89A sign and the historic portion begins in Cottonwood, Arizona south to Clarkdale, Arizona and ends in Jerome, Arizona. All three towns have historic districts (Old Towns) with the road as its center. Clarkdale features a historic 89A road marker near the center of town, which explains the origins of the road as a trail about 600 years ago.

Reviewed By NKVK - Machesney Park, Illinois

Have traveled this route many times and never get bored with it. Always stop in Jerome. The first time I traveled on this route was in 1950. not much has changed just more traffic. A good friend and I drove out from Chicago to LA visited Jerome I think there were about 20 or so folks living there.. We drove a 1938 Ford about froze was in the month of February. What an experience never will forget it. Great memories.
