Travel Tips for Yuma

In front of tourist attractions

by matcrazy1

In front of national and state parks, monuments, historic parks etc. they used to build... look at my picture taken in front of Yuma Teritorial Prison Historic Park. Hmm... how to call it in English?
It's quite popular place to take pictures hehe.

Packing List

by Lady_Sunfire

Cool clothes. Light long sleeve shirts to keep the sun off, you will burn out here and quickly. Always be sure to bring plenty of water. Of course you can get it here, but I recomment buying bottled water.

The bridge over Colorado River

by matcrazy1

If you are going to see the Californian side of the old Fort Yuma you must pass this bridge as on my picture. Hmm... not the most beautiful bridge but... interesting history. The bridge called Southern Pacific bridge was built at the beginning of 20th century.

A quick trip across the border

by spartan

Algodones, Mexico - I have to believe that I have never seen so many drug stores and optometrists in 1 square mile as I've seen here. But be warned, the shops close early (around 4:00 p.m.) and the border crossing closes at 10:00 p.m. Located about 10 miles west of Yuma, take I-8 West to the Andrade/Algodones exit (Highway 186) and follow the signs south.

New Yard

by matcrazy1

Twelve cells were dug into the hillside in 1900 to relieve overcrowding - they formed so called New Yard. By 1907, the prison was severely overcrowded, and there was no room on Prison Hill for expansion. Convicts constructed a new facility in Florence, Arizona, and the last prisoner left Yuma on September 15, 1909.

As you can see on my picture the external walls of the cells are painted in white nowadays. Hmm... better to have sun glasses looking at them :-).
