Welcome to Yuma!
A rich heritage, surrounded by wide-open spaces and pristine desert scenery - all with a river running through it. Once a river port sending military supplies shipped from California to forts and camps in the southwestSunshine to fight the Apache wars, today Yuma is a winter retreat for thousands of visitors craving its warm, dry and sunny climate. With warm weather comes golf, and the city has several excellent courses. Birdwatchers will enjoy the Imperial National Wildlife Refuge, which is rich in migratory bird life and also offers hiking, fishing and boating facilities. Yuma has much to offer and at the top of the list is sunshine.
