Local Reviews

What I like about my neighborhood is that I get along with my neighbors and I live next door to a church. Local business is a grocery store and eateries within a walking distance. I enjoy going to the mall with my friends and family.

The river and scenery. Also where I'm at is older houses and ablt of history sunny skies most of the time

I like being close to grocery stores. I enjoy being near a school there is a coffee shop less than 10 minutes away from my house. there is a park nearby

Nothing unique really. It is all good. Most people are okay. I like going to the malls. There are different restaurants.

It is a quiet neighborhood. There are some restaurants immediately within walking distance and half a mile away a small shopping district.

55 and over trailer parks Walmart across the street and we have public transit transportation in front of the building

About

Yuma, AZ

Overview of Yuma

Located in southern Arizona, Yuma is a city of true Western American history. After its incorporation as Arizona City in 1871, the city was renamed Yuma in 1873. Yuma stands alone as an isolated but modern Arizona community. The city's more than 93,000 residents - a population that nearly doubles between January and March - enjoy its self-reliance, numerous housing developments and hot climate, and those searching for Yuma apartments for rent are certain to discover what many locals already know - that there is more to Yuma than meets the eye.

Yuma's location on the banks of the Colorado River helped it develop over time. Yuma Crossing became the safest place to cross the river during the time of Western exploration, thanks to a number of dams throughout the area. The area was first explored by Spanish settlers Hernando de Alarcon and Melchior Diaz, who predated New England's pilgrims by more than 50 years. The settlers encountered Native Americans, natural wonders and pristine beauty. In 1774, Juan Bautista de Anza established contact with the local Native Americans and began to bring more intense European influence to the area. In the century that followed, numerous wars over Mexican lands predominated the area. Arizona City, whose name was later changed to Yuma, was finally settled as an American city in 1871.

Living in Yuma, AZ

Yuma residents and visitors tend to enjoy the area's numerous outdoor recreation opportunities. Bird watchers love the area for its more than 400 bird species, which find sanctuary in the nearby Kofa, Imperial and Cibola national wildlife refuges. The city's East Wetlands restoration area is also a prime area to catch sight of winged wonders. If bird watching isn't your style, numerous hiking, hunting, camping and water sport opportunities are located in the area.

Those who prefer to stay indoors may consider Yuma's shopping and dining scene. Though Yuma is largely a family-oriented city, it has a bit of nightlife to offer for those who desire it. Incoming residents should note, however, that Yuma is 185 miles from Phoenix and 173 miles from San Diego, so shopping options are largely restricted to the Yuma area.

Arizona Western College is located in Yuma and enrolls about 2,600 students per year. Apart from Arizona Western College, the closest institute of higher learning is Imperial Valley College, which is located 53 miles away in Imperial, Calif. There are no other colleges or universities closer than 100 miles from Yuma.

Yuma is the surrounding area's largest city, so many regional residents commute to Yuma for work daily. In fact, the city's population grows about 6 percent on workdays due to commuting. According to Yuma's 2010 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, the top employers in the city are Marine Corps Air Station, U.S Army Yuma Proving Ground, Yuma Regional Medical Center, Yuma School District 1, Yuma County, Growers Company and the United States Border Patrol.
