Once home to over 15,000 people, then shrinking to about 50 and threatening to become a ghost town, Jerome, Arizona has been re-discovered by an artist community and become one of the state’s most popular attractions. Whether you are an art lover with a desire to explore unique and exciting galleries, a history buff looking for that piece of lost Americana, a wine connoisseur who wants to compare the different local wineries, or one who appreciates nature and enjoys hikes with a view or maybe just want to escape the heat of the summer to relax in the comfort of the cool mountain air, Jerome, Arizona has something to offer for everyone.
Jerome is a great place to shop for those unique gifts, discover different wines in our numerous tasting rooms, watch artists at work in the old Jerome High school, watch a glass blower creating his beautiful pieces while doing stand-up comedy and teaching you about Jerome’s and glassblowing’s history. Eat and eat some more in one of almost a dozen different restaurants and then relax with a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate on our veranda watching the red rocks of Sedona and the San Francisco Peaks of Flagstaff turning pink in the setting sun.
Once the sun has set we recommend a Ghost Tour of Jerome to get you in the right mood for your stay at the Ghost City Inn, or take any of the Historic Walking Tour or Wine Tour during the day: www.ToursOfJerome.com.
