About Yuma, AZ

Did you know that more people are moving to Yuma than almost anywhere in the country. In fact, Yuma is the third fastest growing area in the United States!

Yuma is located in the Yuma and Gila valleys of Southwestern Arizona where Arizona, California, and Mexico converge. Yuma is the third fastest growing area in the country for the period from 1990 - 2000, behind Las Vegas, Nevada and Naples, Florida with a growth rate of 49.7% and is also Arizona's third largest metropolitan area, behind Phoenix and Tucson.

The most obvious reason for Yuma's outstanding growth is, of course, our wonderful climate. Summers can get a little warm, but with the low humidity and the prevalence of air conditioning, they are far from unbearable. And as your reward for making it through 3 months of heat, you have 9 months of beautiful temperatures. Even in the middle of January - our coldest month - the daytime temperature averages in the mid-60's. Yuma's wonderful winters have not gone unnoticed by our friends from the North - our population doubles with the arrival of winter visitors, providing a boom for area businesses. Seasonal visitors contribute approximately $300 million annually to the Yuma economy.

How did Yuma become one of the hot spots in the nation in terms of population growth? Why should you come here? Chalk it up to livability, proximity, accessibility, and climate. In other words, Yuma has it all - and people are taking notice. Click here for a list of things to do in Yuma
