Cottonwood serves as a base for exploring the Verde Valley.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Bearizona Wildlife Park and V-Bar-V Heritage Site. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cottonwood: Painted Desert (in Petrified Forest National Park), Camp Verde (Fort Verde State Historic Park & Hauser and Hauser Farm) and Indian Garden (in Grand Canyon National Park). Spend the 28th (Thu) exploring nature at Montezuma Well. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Meteor Crater, explore the activities along Goldwater Lake, admire the masterpieces at Arizona Copper Art Museum, and steep yourself in history at Montezuma Castle National Monument.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 94°F, and evening lows to 68°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
