What Bert Has To Say About Yuma Metro Area

Yuma is located at the extreme southwest corner of Arizona where the state borders California just north of the Mexican border. A true oasis in the desert, Yuma was originally settled as a crossing point at the Colorado River for California settlers. Today, the dry desert climate is the main attraction. Yuma, one of the driest and sunniest places in the country, averages almost 300 days of sunshine each year.
