2. Try Pickleball
You won’t need to venture too far for a fun-filled game of pickleball, just stop by the manager’s office for information. It’s fun to play and easier to learn than other court sports, having a greater appeal to people of various ages and skill levels.
3. Hike or Bike a Trail
Yuma boasts many wide-open areas that allow for great hiking adventures. Grab the sunscreen, water bottles and a wide-brimmed hat, and check out Telegraph Pass. This trail covers 6.3 miles, with an elevation gain of 1,404 feet. If you want to keep it simple, just turn around at the midway point, which is marked by the start of the paved trail.
4. Explore The Castle Dome Mines Museum & Ghost Town
As you drive into the reconstructed ghost town there’s a stretch of the road that remains unpaved, lending a degree of authenticity and a nostalgic nod to history. Call ahead for reservations during the warmer months. Located on Castle Dome Mine Road, in Yuma, AZ.
5. Head Over to Gateway Park
With your toes in the sand and history overhead, Yuma’s Gateway Park offers a friendly and tranquil riverside spot to soak in the warmth of the day. Gaze at the Ocean to Ocean Bridge, and enjoy a picnic and the little beach next to the refreshing waters of the Colorado River.
6. Do Some Off-Roading
