Visit Jerome State Park and be sure to watch the movie. Then, visit the town. You will learn so much in that order! How interesting! Our children, ages 9, 13 and 15 enjoyed it all!

As you wind your way up the narrow road from the canyon floor, you will be delighted and surprised at the gift of the little mountainside town that awaits. At times, you could never imagine that a town could hang so precariously off the sid of this place, but it does, and it does not disappoint. As you will discover... More

Take the time to drive up, up, up the road to this historic old mining town less than an hour from Sedona. Visit the museum and learn the history of this town built into the side of the mountain.

Wasn't quite sure what to expect, but the view of the area is spectacular and the museum has lots of photos and information about mining and other historic activities in the area. Worth the few bucks to take a look and get some local insight.

Jerome is an important part of Arizona's history that almost disappeared forever. But thanks to the perseverance of the town's 500 remaining residents, it has found new life catering to a thriving tourist industry (based on what I saw). This is a great place to spend a day learning about the origins of the town, its mining roots, its near-demise,... More

This was a great day trip to see the sights at Jerome State Historic Park. But see the town while you are there. Fun day.

This was a really good place to visit, though not an easy drive for the man in the RV who we saw stuck at the top of the town. Jerome has lots of stories to tell, and walking around reading the plaques brings the place to life again. The tourist information office is helpful and the crumbling architecture among the... More

Many of the Building in the town are from the cooper boom. The Town has a very interesting history and the views of the valley are amazing

Jerome as a whole is a fun place to visit. The State Historic Park contains the Douglas House museum which is a cool place to visit with magnificent views of the valley below. It is quite a trek uphill to get to Jerome and at times a bit overwhelming, but the town is worth the visit. The mine shaft that... More
