With my dad, who now owns a spot in Yuma (congrats, dad!), we visited the Yuma Territorial Prison, right on the now-border of California (aka the Colorado River). It’s a gorgeous spot, and the exhibits are amazingly hands-on and done with a clever sense of humor!
Our #1 reason for spending Spring Break in Arizona was to visit my parents, who both now winter there. Both were INCREDIBLE hosts! Both are also teachers (semi-retired and still substitute in both MN and AZ), so our glorious time in the sun was also filled with learning time (of course!).
