If you’re looking for more history, the town of Jerome is just a day drive away. Known as the Wickedest City in the West in 1903, Jerome is an old mining town turned ghost town and restored in the 1960’s to the art style community it is today. There’s a side selection of wine tasting rooms, unique specialty shops, and restaurant. Wear your comfy shoes though, this town is full of hills!
