Sedona, while extremely special, isn’t the only game in town. The Verde Valley is home to a variety of scenic cities and towns rich in culture and history, and all are located not far from our famous red rock village. Explore the mining town of Jerome, including the famous Powder Box Church, share a glass of wine at one of the many wineries in Old Town Cottonwood, or go antiquing in Clarkdale. No matter what you choose to do, you will find that the Verde Valley is an area worth visiting more than once.

Clarkdale

A sleepy little town that was once a company town, Clarkdale is a place where the noise of the real world is muffled and calm. Eat like a cowboy at Nates Cowboy Café or ride the Verde Canyon Railroad on their monthly Saturday Starlight tour. Sit back, relax, and enjoy life at a slower pace in Clarkdale, Arizona.

Cottonwood

Home to the Tuzigoot National Monument, multiple wineries, and a quaint little Western town called Blazin M Ranch, life is quiet in Cottonwood also, but you will never lack for something to do! Tuzigoot National Monument is one of a few surviving rock dwellings built by the ancient Sinaguas that still stand proud and tall as a monument to a historic people. Sample a taste of Arizona’s best wines in the tasting rooms of Arizona Strongholds Winery at 1023 N. Main Street or be entertained by the performances of the Blazin M Cowboys in the dinner theater at Blazin M Ranch located at 1875 Maberry Ranch Road.

Jerome

This former mining town has a large and illustrious history complete with brothels, bars, and bootleggers, and while it’s no longer the wild child it once was, Jerome will still entertain you. Today, Jerome is a thriving artists’ colony filled with galleries and boutiques featuring one-of-a-kind art pieces, jewelry, and other special treasures, as well as a cute little Christmas store called Mooey Christmas & Udder Things that stays open year-round. Sample local wines in style at the Jerome Winery, or take a ghost tour of the Powder Box Church and experience the opportunity to be a real live ghost hunter—for the length of the tour, of course! Discover the colorful and fascinating history of Jerome by visiting the Douglas Mansion museum in Jerome State Historic Park; Jerome is filled with fun activities to keep you entertained!
