Cottonwood AZ

Nestled between Prescott and Sedona in the heart of the Verde Valley lies Cottonwood, Arizona, a former mining town and jewel of the riparian river valley that offers today's visitors and residents panoramic views of rolling green foothills punctuated by red rock formations. Cottonwood is a funky combination of a medium-sized urban community and a charming, shady and gentrified historic Main Street district. Explore Cottonwood itself, strolling through Old Town galleries, thrift shops, and kitschy boutiques. Dine at one-of-a-kind restaurants and diners, and be sure to stop at the tasting room for Arizona Stronghold, one of Arizona's finest wineries. If you wish to venture out into the Verde Valley, with Cottonwood at the hub, visitors can follow short spokes outward to experience the Verde Canyon Railroad in Clarkdale, Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Camp Verde, the former ghost town of Jerome, red rock sightseeing in Sedona, and, of course, all the attractions in Prescott.
