What to expect

Tour to the heart of the Verde Valley from the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Highlights of this day tour include the mining town of Jerome, the historic Copper Art Museum in Clarkdale, and views from your first-class seat and lunch at the Verde Canyon Railroad. The first tour stop will be the historic mining town of Jerome. Mining in Jerome started in the late 1800s and throughout its history has produced approximately 33 million tons of ore including copper and gold. At the historic mining ghost town, explore the history that made it one of the most wicked towns in the West. After the Jerome tour, visit the copper mining mecca of Clarkdale and the Arizona Copper Art Museum. The Museum tour showcases more than 5,000 pieces dating back to 3500 BC. During your time at the museum, guests will explore the uses of copper. From the functional uses, in-home kitchen supplies and tools throughout time to the ornate works of art used to adorn palaces and castles, the wide range of uses is amazing! From the Arizona Copper Art Museum, tour the historic Verde Canyon Railroad for a chance to be a part of that history. With stunning views of the Verde Valley from either your first-class seats or your open-air viewing car, the casual elegance of the train allows guests to discover the uniqueness of the landscape and its distinct ecosystem.
