Yuma Crossing Bridges

Two bridges, one for autos and one for trains, cross the Colorado River at Yuma Crossing.

As far a we can tell, without the Colorado River, there would be no Yuma, Arizona. However, because Yuma has abundant water from the River, this Southwest Arizona City has an abundance of attractions for locals and snowbirds alike.

Moreover, we at Southern Arizona Guide recently discovered that Yuma is in Southern Arizona. So, on our return from Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point) the last week of 2016, we stopped in Yuma to find out what it’s all about. We spent a delightful evening and morning exploring, but there is so much to see and do in Yuma that we want to return soon ... hopefully during one of their many annual festivals.
