"Yuma won a permanent place in Arizona Territory by 1870. Today the residents of this city rely on the same river waters to support agriculture, commerce, recreation, and the military. Located close to San Diego and Mexico, this small city attracts thousands of winter visitors to its sunny environs. Today some historic buildings commemorate what was once the busy Yuma Crossing. The Colorado and Gila Rivers once converged here before the Gila changed its course. Eighty years before the Pilgrims landed, beginning in 1540, Spanish explorers rode through this land in search of the Seven Cities of Gold. This chapter from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Phoenix. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
