Looking for something to do after dark in Yuma? Hmm... it's NOT a place for party animals, I am sure.
You can cross the newly restored Ocean to Ocean Bridge to the Paradise Casino, Fourth Avenue North (tel. 888/777-IWIN), across the Colorado River on the Quechan Indian Reservation, and try your luck. Hmm... I didn't do it.
I was sleeping and dreaming and... in Yuma Inn Motel, instead! Comfortable beds they had there :-))).
Dress Code: For casino: casual clothes accepted (jeans + T-shirt, I mean)
For a bed in Yuma Inn Motel: hehe, what you prefer: pyjama, sleeping shorts and/or T-shirt, nothing :-))).
Nestled in the Desert Southwest is a place which offers all the excitement of Las Vegas without all the hassle. There are over 800 slot machines, Bingo, Blackjack & Poker.
Dress Code: No suits and evening gowns required, just go casual.
The old downtown Yuma is located at the northern tip of the city right by Colorado River. A good section of the main street (called Main St.) is blocked for pedestrian use only. There are some restaurants and bars, but not too exciting. The famous one is the "Lutes Casino", which used to be a gambling place but now a restaurant and a bar. I don't have a photo but downtown is small so it's hard to miss. Just stay on Main St.
Yuma is a city of about 57,000 people on the Arizona side. It is not a huge city but is big enough to have some places to go at night. We were just there in the afternoon but this casino looked busy on the California side of the river.
