Area Towns

Area TownsSedona is nestled among a red rock wonderland. Stone formations jut upwards from the high desert floor creating a vivid, mesmerizing setting that changes hourly with the light. USA Weekend claimed Sedona as their Most Beautiful Place in America.

Jerome is a major attraction for tourists and residents is the fantastic view from Jerome, which, at 5,000 feet, overlooks the Verde Valley and the spectacular red rock cliffs of the Mogollon Rim, capped by the 13,000 foot San Francisco Peaks 50 miles to the north.

Clarkdale  contains multiple sites listed on the National register of Historic Places, including the original “company town” site, mining and smelter sites, the one-lane bridge on Broadway and the Clark Memorial Courthouse. Clarkdale houses a vibrant downtown featuring restaurants, bars, an art gallery and a beautiful park, complete with a nostalgic bandstand where summer evening concerts are held.

Cottonwood is located in the “heart” of Arizona, the Verde Valley is ideally situated above the heat of the desert and below the cold of Arizona’s high country. Surrounded by the red rocks of Sedona, Mingus Mountain elevating to 8,000′ to the west, and the Mogollon Rim stretching north and east, its low elevation of 3,300′ and moderate climate is enjoyed year-round.
