First, there's the ride on 89-A, the road that leads to Jerome. WOW! There are just enough twists and turns to keep even the most experienced biker happy. There may be gravel in the road at spots; just keep that in mind. Once we got to Jerome, we visited the historic park first to learn a bit about the history... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Jerome history museum (mansion). They had a great little movie that lasts about a half hour. It was informative and nicely done. After this stop, we hopped in the car and drove up and down the streets of the town. Great views.

With the homes and business almost stacked on top of one another, winding your way through this town will keep your interest. Very much enjoyed the galleries, and shops. Doubtful there's another place quite like it in the USA. We ate at The Grapes restaurant in Jerome and probably had one of best meals on our trip. Only a short... More

The drive up to Jerome is beautiful and the view from the top is amazing. The museum tells a very interesting tale of the mining done there and the little town on top of the mountain. We really enjoyed all of it.

If you like hair pin turns and beautiful views than this day trip is for you! Jerome is a small town located in the mountains. You will find a few haunted places to enjoy your lunch as well as some shopping.

Few people, even locals, know that the town of Jerome, "The wickedest town in the West", has English Pedigree. Well, sort of. It's named after Eugene Jerome, a cousin of Jenny Jerome, the American mother of Winston Churchill. Eugene Jerome, a New York financier, was the Treasurer of the investors group which incorporated the town in 1899. Large copper deposits... More

We went to Sedona for the day and on our way back we took 89A and happened upon the little town of Jerome which is like going back 50 years. The views from the town were unbelievable and we were at 6000 foot elevation. The town is in the side of the mountain and the streets are very narrow and... More

Do go here first, and do NOT miss the half-hour movie of the town's history - fascinating and informative. Quite a story. We toured the Douglas Mansion after the movie and enjoyed it very much.
