Verde Valley Activities

When you're in the Verde Valley, you're never far from breathtaking sights, family-friendly attractions, historical landmarks, natural beauty and more things to do. Within minutes, visitors can go from exploring the Historic Old Town Cottonwood on foot, to softly rumbling through a serene riparian canyon by train in Clarkdale, to winding along red rock highways and steep cliff-side mining town roads by car in Jerome. And just as easily, it seems you can weave back and forth between the Verde Valley's ancient Sinanguan and 19th century past and a peaceful present, with the Verde Valley's rich mining history and today's small-town charm ever-apparent as you explore the Verde Valley. Check out these things to do in the Verde Valley, like shops, galleries, restaurants, golf courses and attractions for kids and adults alike.
