A fabulous place to go when visiting Arizona.
I love this little town! It is a fun place to visit because of the artsy boutiques, delicious restaurants, and incredible wineries.
Quite a neat little mountain town! Located on Cleopatra Hill. 5,200 ft. elevation.
And every time I go to Jerome, AZ…
I like it even more!
To start the day in Jerome… you must shop at a few stores that have local artists showcasing their pottery, paintings, glassblowing etc. The art is scattered throughout the quaint stores.
Then it’s time for lunch, I highly recommend The Haunted Hamburger.
My friend and I started out with Bloody Marys and enjoyed huge delicious burgers!
Jerome was a Mining Town back in the day.
Jerome is known for being the largest Ghost Town in America as well.
Because of that… many proprietors boast of ghosts.
450 people call Jerome home… but who knows how many ghosts call it home?
Jerome Grand Hotel which was a hospital in the early 1900’s had 10,000 people die during it’s time of existence as a hospital.
Another ghostly area is…
Gold King Mine Ghost Town
The owner has done a fabulous job making sure this place stays true to it’s name.
I was in heaven when I was able walk around the town and photograph some old trucks! I love the old trucks of the desert!
Enjoy the Truck Slideshow!
The tour of the Ghost Yard and Trucks got me all geared up for a local winery tasting.
But a Jerome visit must end with a quick stop for a cappuccino at The Jerome Grand Hotel.
Please stop over to see Ingrid at Live Laugh RV
and read all about her visit to Jerome with her daughter. Her great photos will make you wish you were accompanying them.
Oh, and my friend JoHanna Massey did a fabulous post (with music as well) on Gold King Mine of Jerome. Hope you can visit her.
Until Next Time ~Nancy
