As the weather warms up and the Palo Verde explodes into bloom, there’s no better time to visit Yuma, Arizona, for a unique outdoor adventure. Here are just a few reasons why you should visit Yuma this spring:

With a legendary average of 4,015 hours of sunshine annually, Yuma is known as the “sunniest place on earth.” This makes it the perfect destination for those who are looking to escape the cold weather. Soak up the sun from the water’s edge at Gateway Park or take in the technicolor sunrises and sunsets (some of the best you’ll find in the Southwest). Whether you’re lounging by the pool, exploring the desert landscape, or taking a leisurely stroll through one of the many parks, you’re sure to enjoy the warm, sunny weather in Yuma this spring.

2. Outdoor Adventures Galore



Soak up every minute in Yuma the way you’ve always wanted to — without regrets. Kick off an adventurous stay at full throttle with high-speed boating. Find solace in the sunset from a pontoon, a paddleboard, or one of Yuma’s three National Wildlife Refuges. The Yuma East and West Wetlands are popular destinations for birdwatchers and nature lovers, while the Colorado River provides ample opportunities for water sports, including fishing, boating, and kayaking. Whether you’re a seasoned adventurer or just starting out, Yuma must be added to your bucket list. Adventure is calling — will you answer?
