I always here there is nothing to do in Yuma, Arizona. At times I think I even believed this myself. Growing up in the small neighboring town of Somerton the summer days were filled with trips to the local park to watch little league players and stops at the local ice cream stop. I thought man I wish they would do this and that. The truth really was I was surround by constant events and things to do. In fact I started volunteering for the Somerton Parks and Recreation Department when I was 13 years old until I turned 16. I have always been asked what things there are to do in Yuma. With my lack of education I said nothing.. We now have a wonderful water park, Waylon’s Water Park that is a part of the Yuma Fun Factory another awesome “thing to do in Yuma”. I thought there has to be more. There is so much I have learned especially when it comes to history and Yuma. I have sat a few times with Carol Brooks of the Arizona Historical society and as we are talking about certain points of interest I can vividly see some of the historical information come alive before me. There were several movies that were filmed in the area and the stories that people have been talking to me about are truly entertaining. I think Yuma Arizona is an interesting place not so well notarized or spoken of by travel or tourism magazines or even blogs for that matter. In any case, I will do my best to find the places. people. events and information and bring it to you
Wish Me Luck!
