Come and experience beautiful and vibrant  Yuma, Arizona where the sun shines almost every day and dreary, cloudy days and snow are a thing of the past. Our mild winters average a high temperature of 70 degrees, which allows you to be outside having fun and enjoy the sunshine all winter long. In addition, everything you need is within a 5 to 15-minute drive with minimal traffic.

Our year-round population for Yuma County is ~ 217,000 residents; however, we grow by an additional 100,000 winter residents who come to enjoy the weather and our community.

Yuma sits on the edge of the Colorado River and borders San Diego, California and Phoenix, Arizona.  Our community is large enough to have everything you need, but small enough that everyone  is like family. Yuma is a great place to live that has so many travel options close by.

  • San Diego, CA and Phoenix, AZ are just over a 2 and a half hour drive away.
  • Tucson is just over 3-hour drive. 
  • Las Vegas is a little over 4 hours.
  • Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Mexico and so many other options are available when you want a quick weekend get-a-way.

Enjoy numerous year-round community activities; such as, block parties, fairs, festivals, concerts, art-walks, farmers markets, culinary dinners/tours and so much more. There are many outdoor activities available in our community with the nearby Imperial Sand Dunes (ATV's, rails & dirt bikes), Colorado River (boating, kayaking, & fishing), and hiking/riding trails (Telegraph Pass/Pilot's Knob), Gateway (Beach) Park and West Wetlands. 

You will find that our diverse community is very warm, friendly and takes an interest in the well-being of one another. Yuma is a place that makes you feel right at home - from the rental car agent at the airport to the gas station attendant, to your server at a restaurant and everyone else you may meet.

Reach out today and join us for a little fun underneath the Arizona sun!
