Yuma vacation rentals

Yuma, an action-packed destination for summer and winter fun

Known as the Gateway to the Great Southwest, Yuma is located in the southwestern corner of Arizona, bordering California and Mexico. The desert climate makes it ideal for year-round travel, but the area hosts the largest volume of travelers in the cooler winter months. This family-friendly hotspot has something for everyone. Explore the city’s mining, military, or aviation history at its many museums. Bask in the beauty of natural spaces, or make a splash at the water park, or the Colorado River itself. With numerous vacation rentals in Yuma, your family will have more things to do than there are hours in a day.

Action-packed family-friendly recreation in Yuma

Whether you love the water or like to stay on land, Yuma keeps you busy from dawn to dusk. Yuma vacation rentals near the Colorado River place you in the heart of water recreation. Gateway Park blends a peaceful park experience with full river access. Learn to kayak, float inner tubes down the river, or take a cooling dip in refreshing waters. Enjoy guided activities or explore independently with rented recreational vehicles. For a land-based challenge, head out to the Imperial Sand Dunes and race ATVs where they filmed several blockbusters such as Star Wars.

There's something for everyone in historic Yuma

Yuma is a family-friendly destination for all tastes. Step back in time at the Castle Dome Mine Museum, a preserved mining town featuring old mills, an original broiler, and stocked merchant shops that ensure an authentic feel. Military enthusiasts will enjoy the Yuma Proving Ground, and the Yuma Quartermaster Depot where the army stored supplies for southwestern forces during the Civil War will also fascinate the military-minded. Spend the day laughing with the kids at the brand-new Waylon’s Water World full of slides, or try your luck at Paradise Casino.

Yuma, the sunniest city in the world

As the Guinness World Record holder of ‘Sunniest City in the World’, Yuma is an excellent destination year-round. This dry, desert climate is sunny for nine-tenths of the year, and all that sun brings heat, so visit the Kennedy, Marcus, and Carver public pools to cool down. Reserve your Yuma vacation rental for March to experience the fragrant bloom of orange blossoms. Humidity stays low most of the year, except during July and August. Don’t leave your jacket at home, though, as desert climates cool considerably at night, particularly in winter months.

Preservation and restoration for Yuma

Hikers and nature lovers will be thrilled with Yuma’s three national wildlife preserves, Cibola, Kofa, and Imperial. Just outside of downtown is the East Wetlands Restoration Area. This once dilapidated zone full of invader species has been revitalized into stunning wetlands. A Yuma vacation rental near the wetlands gives you access to city life as well as this 3-mile, unpaved, loop of natural space. Make sure to bring plenty of water and perhaps an umbrella for shade. The south channel has access for recreational water activities.
