Embark upon this tour of the Verde Valley, including Jerome and the Verde Canyon Railroad. Take a tour of the historic ghost town of Jerome, a tour of the Copper Art Museum in Clarkdale, as well as stunning night time views from your first class seat on the Verde Canyon Railroad.
On select Saturday evenings, the Verde Canyon Railroad departs the depot at 5:30 p.m.. As it rumbles through the Canyon, the low slant of sun bathes the high cliffs in soft golden hues. The train reaches the turn-around point of Perkinsville amid a scandalous sunset. The return trip offers a serene glimpse into the nocturnal wildlife set against a dazzling canvas of celestial bodies. As the sun slips behind distant mountains, cool air sweeps through the Canyon signaling the resident wildlife to begin their nightly rounds.
