Things to do in Cottonwood:

Cottonwood, Arizona is the place to go if you’re looking for something different. Located in Yavapai County, between Prescott and Sedona, Cottonwood is surrounded by jagged mountains on the south, east and west, and to the north by mesas and buttes. Named for the beautiful Cottonwood trees that grow along the Verde River, the town has grown from a small farming community to the Verde Valley’s population center.

The small town of Cottonwood is a quiet community with convenient shopping, hotels, and restaurants, and a picturesque Historic Old Town, complete with high sidewalks and false fronted buildings that lend to the old west atmosphere. Situated in the center of the Verde Valley, Cottonwood is the ideal spot to stay while visiting other area attractions. You will find so much to do in this part of central Arizona, such as visiting ancient Indian ruins, historic parks and landmarks and ghost towns.
