Quite the hike or drive

Jerome is an unusual town built into he side of this hill. Be sure to drive or hike the narrow, steep winding roads that climb the hill, fascinating place and drive!

Take the scenic drive through Jerome and visit the galleries, shops, wineries and great Restaurants. Be careful because some sections are one way roads. We had a few people that were going the wrong way.

The town of Jerome is built on Cleopatra Hill. You can, however, take a scenic drive through the rest of the hill. There are some hairpin curves and steep slopes and it is a bit bumpy. The views are simply amazing though!

This is a crazy, winding, thrilling drive. Jerome is an unusual town literally built into the side of a steep hill/mountain. The place has character and history. I visited a few years ago with friends and this time I was on a road trip with my son. I wanted him to see Jerome. Unfortunately I didn't take into account that... More

I have been to every shop/store in Jerome and I love this store! It is a store that even the person on a tight budget can afford! I went and picked up a lot of Christmas gifts for my family here and some things for myself as well! Every time I go up to Jerome from the valley (Phoenix) I... More

I mean, Cleopatra hill is Jerome, so you really can't see Jerome without doing Cleopatra Hill. But just driving around, yes, taking pictures, enjoying the ambiance of the whole place is very enjoyable.

I've lived in Arizona for some time and had never been to Jerome or really even heard much about it. We decided to stop there on our way to Sedona and all I can say is wow! I absolutely loved Jerome so much that I want to live there......well maybe. I am a bit weary of the haunted stuff because... More

Having been to the funky former mining town of Bisbee, AZ., we wanted to check out Jerome (population 500 versus 5,000). It's now shot to the top of our Favorites List. Locals here say Bisbee's funkiness is "on steroids," and pride themselves on their friendliness and community spirit -- artists, hippies, mine families, local business people. The approach on 89A...

Drive up the paved winding (but very good) road to Jerome for incredible views of the whole Verde Valley! You can see for 100 miles. Jerome sits on the side of a mountain - literally. Really good lunch restaurants and fun shops with lots of history at every turn. Walk around - and up- the streets and poke in the... More

On a clear day you can see the mountains north of Flagstaff, the cliffs of Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon.
