UZA loves Yuma, Arizona!  We went there on a trip a couple of months ago.  It is a small town, but it is quaint, friendly, interesting, multicultural, agricultural, nature friendly, beautiful, historical, entertaining, FUN and there is something for everyone to see and do.  Do not shortchange Yuma just because it is small.  You might even want to stay a couple of days/nights to get a chance to take in everything and enjoy the peace and quiet you can find there as well.

Yuma Territorial Prison 
State Historic Park

Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park Is one of the coolest places UZA has ever been to.  This Historic Prison is really one of a kind and just so amazing to see.  The history and background of the Prison is so amazing.  The Dark Cell is one of the best parts of the whole experience.  You walk in and feel the energy and can feel that you are not alone in there.  Founder Syd was taking photo's and her camera kept dying and as soon as Syd left the Dark Cell her camera would start working again.  The Theater that they show the short video on about the Prison was the most creepy part.  The feeling you get in there is just so odd.  In the Theater she even heard weird music and sounds and she really felt like she was not alone in there, and it was as if someone was watching you.
UZA would recommend that you should be sure to go visit the Prison in Yuma, Arizona!

Yuma Prison Cemetery 

Yuma, Arizona Prison Cemetery is close by and just outside the Prison.  There are
 no grave markers so all the graves
 there are unmarked graves.

Yuma Prison Hill Brewing Company

The Yuma Prison Hill Brewing Company Food is to die for!  UZA had the pleasure of eating here and it was very delicious!
The food was excellent and the portions were large and the 

root beer float was refreshing!!home/mainPage

The Jail Bird

Slow smoked turkey, bacon, avocado, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo, and mustard. Served cold on thick cut white or wheat bread

Prison Hill Smoked Meat Plate

It's your choice. Pick any two of our house-smoked meats: turkey, tri-tip, BBQ beef, brisket, pork, or Kammann Sausage. Then pick two sides to go with them! Served with warm tortillas and Prison Hill's homemade stout BBQ sauce.
Convict Cobb

Mixed greens, bacon, avocado, tomato, a hard-boiled egg, and blue cheese crumbles round out this bowl.
Root Beer Float

Two scoops of homemade vanilla ice cream, served in a pint glass filled with root beer. Topped with whipped cream and a cherry.

Gateway Park

Yuma Gateway Park on the Colorado River is such a beautiful spot to just sit and relax.  Gateway Park is a great place for photo's and is just breath-taking and not far from the Prison.  Make sure to stop by, see, and drive on
 the "one-lane" (at a time) historic 
"Ocean To Ocean" Highway!

There is so much more to do and see in Yuma, Arizona!  Have a great time when you get the chance.  (They also have the cutest cos-play Dancing Teddy Bear and UZA just loves him - Rock On and Keep On Dancing!)
