Yuma Territorial Prison
Opened in 1875, the Yuma Territorial Prison is a former prison located in Yuma that now serves as a historical museum called Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park. It had accepted its first inmate on 1 July 1876 and the number swelled more than three thousand times over next 33 years. This ghastly number was inclusive of some of the most gruesome offenders of 19th and 20th centuries who were charged with counts like murder, felony and polygamy.
West Wetlands Park
The West Wetlands Park is a public park along the Colorado River in Yuma. This 110 acres of fun has been regularly voted Yuma’s best park. Home to a vast range of local flora and fauna, it also supports a wide range of activities like fishing, tubing, canoeing, kayaking, motor boating, jet skiing and swimming.
Castle Dome Landing (or the Castle Dome City)
Located less than an hour away from the city, the Castle Dome Landing is a ghost town in the Castle Dome Mountains of Yuma County in Arizona. It was settled as a transport depot and mining camp around 1863 but later fell into an irreversible cycle of decline and was deserted. Today it stands as a museum that encapsulates an area of over 50 restored buildings, a saloon, a hotel, a mill and a blacksmith shop to hail an appearance of those happy times of 100 years ago.
Bridge to Nowhere (or the McPhaul Bridge)
The Bridge to Nowhere is 800-foot suspension bridge that was built in 1929 and was known to have served as a model for the Golden Gate in California. The bridge was abandoned after a dam was built over upstream 40 years later, resulting in the river and motorized traffic being routed over a much smaller bridge. It is closed to all pedestrians and motorized traffic ever since.
