ABOUT YUMA


Whether you live in Yuma, Arizona or are just visiting, I would like to share with you some of my favorite places.

My favorite golf course is Mesa Del Sol. It is a professional eighteen hole golf course that meanders through miles of some of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Yuma. From every fairway the lovely purple Yuma foothills can be seen rising behind the tile and adobe style custom homes with their beautifully manicured trees and flora. Ponds are plentiful and alluring as they reflect the colorful settings as well as accommodate the many species of water loving birds. My next favorite course in Yuma is Desert Hills. Although there are no homes winding through their fairways, they have a beautiful clubhouse with fine indoor and outdoor dining with an infinite view of the course. In fact, I never really golf there but I love having lunch and watching the golfers practicing their putting and teeing off just a few yards away from our table. Having lived in Yuma and being golfers here for eighteen years we always see someone we know while we’re enjoying our lunch at the Hills Patio and Bar restaurant (read my review with pictures here) at the Yuma Desert Hills Golf Course.

Dining in Yuma is challenging. That is to say, there aren’t any really upscale places to eat. But Yuma is a relatively small town and in the hot hot summers the population goes down to 66,000 whereas in the winter it increases threefold when the snowbirds come from their freezing climates. Yuma has the usual chain restaurants like Olive Garden, Red Lobster and such, but no privately owned upscale restaurants that I could recommend. The places we do eat are mostly the chains. Da Boyz Italian Cuisine (Read my review with pictures here) in downtown Yuma has half price on bottles of wine on Wednesdays and the very best pizza in Yuma. It has outdoor seating which is nice and is always buzzing with people. It’s a few doors down from the Village Art Gallery on Main Street whose members are featured on this website. The Asian Star restaurant is the only place I will eat sushi in Yuma. There are other sushi bars but I am very particular. It’s really more of a Chinese style place with a small sushi bar, but it’s clean and modern which is important to me when I partake in raw fish. For atmosphere there is always Juliana’s Patio Cafe. They have a gorgeous outdoor patio with live parrots, but the times we have been there we were disappointed with their food.

Places come and go but so far the ones I mentioned keep us coming back. Below is a link with everything you need to know about Yuma including other restaurants.                        PAGE 1 2  3
