Known as the Gateway to the Great Southwest, Yuma offers hotel guests a taste of the America’s Old West.
Although it includes just a few streets, Historic Downtown Yuma has dining and shopping options to keep you busy all day. Start at Lute’s Casino, which isn’t really a casino, but is definitely a great place for a hot burger and a cold beer––named for the illegal gambling that took place in Lute’s back rooms for several decades, this historic establishment is filled with memorabilia depicting Yuma’s colorful past.
While you’re downtown, be sure to see the recently-restored façade of The Historic Yuma Theater, a grand theatre built in 1912 that has been in continuous operation since 1936.
Active guests of our hotels in Yuma can tube, fish and jet boat on the Colorado River; for those who like a little less action but still love the water, there’s a breathtaking Sunset Cruise on Lake Martinez. And for a knowledgeable guide for any water fun, guests enjoying accommodations in Yuma can contact Yuma River Tours.
There’s plenty of great Mexican food in Yuma, but hotel guests can also find perfect pizza at Ronnie’s Pizza, and an excellent steak at the Market Wine Bar Bistro.
