The Verde Canyon Railroad, in Clarkdale, AZ, is an innkeeper’s favorite and we’d love to introduce you to it! The diesel train follows the Verde River into Arizona’s “other Grand Canyon” and whatever season you choose to ride, you will find beauty and fun. Their website describes the experience as “Arizona’s longest running nature show” and a visit to the site will answer all of your questions http://verdecanyonrr.com/ . Make plans soon to enjoy the ride. We took our family, including three grandchildren, for a February 2011 ride (our fourth) and they still recall it with delight.
