Yuma Area Information

Yuma Area Information

Yuma is the tenth largest city in state of Arizona, the county seat of Yuma County, and the anchor city of the Yuma, Arizona Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The city is host to a varied and diverse culture, geography and demographics. Located in the Southwest corner of the state of Arizona, Yuma holds the Guiness World Record for being the sunniest place in the world. Undoubtedly, this year-round warm temperature makes the city an ideal location for those wanting to escape the cold of winter, and thus, the city receives nearly 100,000 people who have second homes or travel to Yuma during the winter months. This influx of non-residents makes the population of the city swell to almost double its normal size.
