Climb the mountain and travel back in time. Find yourself in an unspoiled, early 20th century Arizona mining town where Victorian homes, historic hotels, and hospitals cling precariously to the steeply raked hillside, and where winding switchback streets connect the levels of the town. Wander the narrow lanes past studios where artists create works of jewelry, tapestries, oils, sculpted stone, wood, and wire. Everywhere the astounding view extends for miles, filling the eye and clearing the mind as the mountain air refreshes and reinvigorates your soul. Spend your weekend in Jerome simply poking around the history-laden streets to browse the shops and galleries, or use it as a base for exploring sites back down the mountain. Relax, breathe deep, forget for a while that Monday is just a few hours away.
