Why Move To Yuma? Because it just might be the best place on Earth
With mild weather – averaging 350 sunny days per year, the stark beauty of the desert landscape and stunning mountain vistas, Yuma is home to artists and engineers, teachers and farm workers, tourists and life-long residents… in short, we’re friendly, helpful people just like you.
Thanks to the mineral-rich soil, mild winters, and irrigation from the Colorado River, Yuma is the third largest vegetable grower in the nation. Not just for agriculture, the Colorado River is the lifeblood of the area. Outdoor activities abound with fishing, boating, hiking, rock climbing and camping. Visit Imperial Dam, on both the Arizona and California sides, for water sports, unforgettable views and nature photography.
Our panoramic views and magnificent sunrises and sunsets are endless inspiration for artists. Don’t miss the art shows at the Yuma Art Center with its Art Deco murals in the theater and cast plaster bas-reliefs in the lobby.
Like to Golf?
With sunshine to spare, our sweeping hills and valleys make everyday a great day for golf. Yuma has a diverse array of courses available, so every golfer can find the right match, whether seeking a challenge or just some low-key recreation.
Entertainment & Events
Enjoy glitz and glamour at the casinos. Lady Luck is calling you to visit Cocopah, Paradise and Quechan for exciting table games and entertainment. And our beautiful weather makes every weekend perfect for festivals and special events – like the Midnight at the Oasis Car Show, the Yuma Air Show, and the free block party at Celebrate the Heat.
