While Arizona is known for its desert regions, the West Coast gives plenty of opportunities to cool off. With the Colorado River running from the Hoover Dam to Mexico, and with multiple lakes and reservoirs that dot the landscape, visitors have miles of water to splash around in throughout the region. You can enjoy any water sport from swimming to skiing to boating. Explore new depths in local coves or just hike along the shoreline to enjoy the beautiful scenery. When you’re ready to dry off, there are plenty of natural wonders to discover. Become one with nature on a camping expedition in one of the four state parks along the river, each housing their own campsite and multiple hiking trails. Experience the life of a cowboy in Grand Canyon West, where you can stay at a Western-style ranch that offers horseback riding and campfire dinners. If you’re more into relaxation than rustic adventure, there are plenty of resorts and spas that will help you unwind after a day of watersports or outdoor activities. For a dose of American nostalgia, you can visit the historic Route 66 museum in Kingman to learn about the cross-country highway that paved the way for travelers across several generations. No matter what adventure you’re craving, Arizona’s West Coast oasis is sure to provide fun for the whole family. Plan your trip with Mighway and let your journey unfold.

High school can sometimes feel like you've been put behind bars... but imagine if you actually had to attend class in a former notorious Wild West prison! For four years, between 1910 and 1914, the Yuma Union High School held classes in the building that's now Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park, right after the prison inmates were transferred to the Arizona State Prison Complex in nearby Florence in 1909. It was after an unexpected football victory against a team from Phoenix that the school received its infamous nickname: The Criminals. The Phoenix team, bitter over the loss, began calling the Yuma players "criminals", and the Yuma players liked the moniker so much that it stuck. In fact, even today the Yuma High School's team mascot is a tough-looking convict, and they affectionately refer to themselves as "The Crims". They even named their school spirit shop "The Cell Block". But it is a little weird to consider that the school was once home to some of the West's most dangerous outlaws. It opened in 1876, and saw over 3,000 delinquents pass through its doors over its 33 years as a prison. Some better-known inmates included deputy sheriff-turned train robber Burt Alvord, notorious con-man and gunfighter Buckskin Frank Leslie (he once married the widow of a man he killed a mere eight days after murdering her husband), and Pete Spence, who was at the infamous gunfight at the O.K. Corral. An infamous Mexican revolutionary, Ricardo Flores Magón, a Mormon named William Flake who was convicted of polygamy, and the woman who committed one of the last known stagecoach robberies, Pearl Hart, also called the prison home. Today, the prison is now a museum and state historic park. If you visit, you can learn what it was like to be an outlaw behind bars in the Wild West-- it actually wasn't as bad as you might imagine. Most inmates were treated fairly well for the time and got the chance to go to school and make crafts to sell at fairs, although thousands died while staying there-- none of those deaths were executions, though; most were the result of tuberculosis. Twenty-six people escaped successfully, including two from within the confines of the prison-- those who were caught trying to break free got the ball and chain. Nowadays, though, it's pretty easy to stroll on out of the prison when you're ready to leave... no ball and chain necessary! -Roadtrippers On July 1, 1876, the first seven inmates entered the Territorial Prison at Yuma and were locked into the new cells they had built themselves. At Yuma Territorial Prison State Historic Park walk through the actual strap iron cells and solitary chamber of Arizona Territory’s first prison. Now a museum, the building houses photographs and colorful exhibits of those who once “involuntarily” stayed there and the prison life they had to endure. A total of 3,069 prisoners, including 29 women, lived within the walls during the prison’s 33 years of operation.Despite an infamous reputation, written evidence indicates that the prison was humanely administered, and was a model institution for its time. The only punishments were the dark cells for inmates who broke prison regulations, and the ball and chain for those who tried to escape. Come experience this fascinating slice of Arizona history. The park offers a museum with exhibits, a gift shop, video presentation, picnic area, and restrooms. The park is reportedly haunted by spirits who enjoy pinching children and those that wear the color red. Others have reported a "presence" that enjoys whistling.
The original bridge from England was purchased by the founder of Lake Havasu City and reconstructed at Lake Havasu in 1971.
Oatman is a former mining town in the Black Mountains of Mohave County, Arizona, United States. Located at an elevation of 2,710 feet (830 m), it began as a tent camp soon after two prospectors struck a $10 million gold find in 1915, though the area had been already settled for a number of years. Oatman's population grew to more than 3,500 in the course of a year. After a few other names, Oatman was named in the posthumous honor of Olive Oatman, a young Illinois girl who was taken captive by (presumably) Yavapai Indians and forced to work as a slave. She was later traded to Mohave Indians who adopted her as a daughter and had her face tattooed in the custom of the tribe. She was released in 1855 near the current site of the town. 1924 would see United Eastern Mines, the town's main employer, permanently shut down operations after producing $13,600,000 worth of gold (at the then government controlled market value of $20 per ounce; in today's gold market price of $1300 per oz. the equivalent gold value today is over $850,000,000). The district had produced $40 million (or $2,600,000,000 or so in today's market price) in gold by 1941, when the remainder of the town's gold mining operations were ordered shut down by the US Government as part of the country's war effort since metals other than gold were needed. Oatman was fortunate insofar as it was located on busy U.S. Route 66 and was able to cater to travelers driving between Kingman and Needles, California. Even that advantage was short-lived as the town was completely bypassed in 1953 when a new route between Kingman and Needles was built. By the 1960s, Oatman was all but abandoned.
