Venture to the heart of Verde Valley on this immersive day tour, taken initially by foot and then on the heritage railroad of Verde Canyon. First head to the mining town of Jerome, responsible for 33 million tons of ore, including copper and gold, dating back to the late 1800s. You can also hear of this ghost town’s fascinating history with an expert-led guided tour. Next, venture to Clarkdale, known for its copper mining past, and the Arizona Copper Art Museum, which showcases the creative fruits of the region’s labour. Finally, it’s all aboard the Verde Canyon Railroad, a miner’s commute to work over 100 years ago, to wind your way through the scenic wilderness of Verde Valley. Admire the rugged hilltops and dusty, barren lands that define the American South’s characteristic countryside from your first-class seats or open-air viewing car.
