Verde Canyon Railroad

Your journey begins at the depot in Clarkdale where you can enjoy the cafĂŠ, gift shop and museum while you wait for your adventure to start. You will travel in first class, caboose, coach, or the locomotive ride-along. All cars have access to open-air viewing with shaded canopies. The meticulously cared for FP7 locomotives, two of only ten remaining in North America, are the muscle that pulls the quarter-mile length of passenger cars. On your journey you will learn the history of and see the spectacularly beautiful Verde Canyon, nearly unchanged for hundreds and thousands of years, where its unique and protected ecosystem remains unspoiled and rich in geological intrigue and wildlife. Visitors come from all over the world to ride this special train. You can book a train ride for the afternoon or include it with a weekend stay in Sedona, Cottonwood, Clarkdale, or Jerome. In December you can enjoy the Magical Christmas Journey to the North Pole!

AZ/88 is a modern saloon with award winning cocktails and classic cuisine. Since 1988, the interior of minimal design supports everchanging works of art, not unlike a gallery or it's two neighboring museums. Their specialty drink is the Martini.
